Six days after Thanksgiving and you only thought you were done with leftovers. It's that time of year when we share some of our SLANT leftovers of delicious creative work that was shoved in the fridge by the client and never heard from again.
Binge watching ALL the things on Netflix? Ordering a pizza by yelling at Alexa? Unlocking your new iPhone with your face? These are all all modern-day things we love that are super cool. But those pale in comparison to the coolness of machines that fly and go into outer space! So imagine our excitement when we were tapped to work with South Carolina Aerospace on a new Aerospace Careers Campaign.
What's green and moves tons of dirt?? Meet Morgan Corp, one of the industry's best...and they're a new client.
Say hello to our newest client!
We’re excited to announce that Spirit Communications will be joining the SLANT creative portfolio. Located in Columbia, SC, Spirit is a leading communications company serving South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia. Spirit has commissioned SLANT to bring a fresh and modern look to the company’s website.
Spirit’s Roddy Broadnax said: “SLANT’s reputation for quality design work is what caught our attention. But their strategic approach to design is what we got excited about. They bring ideas to the table that don’t just look good, they can help improve the overall customer experience. That’s precisely what Spirit was looking for with this web project.”
SLANT’s founder and creative director Christopher Cecil says, “As designers and tech geeks, we definitely have a soft spot for consumer technology and Spirit’s rapid growth as a communications leader tells us they’ve got something great. Add to that their interest in raising the creative bar, this has all the signs of an amazing bromance. Unless they tell us they like clipart...that would be grounds for a breakup.”
Stay tuned for some fresh Spirit website updates – we hope you like what you see.
If you’re a Charleston sneakerhead, JP Hudson needs no introduction. For those uninitiated, JP is is the visionary behind Sneaker, Charleston’s new destination for exclusive sneakers and apparel. So now that we all know each other, let us tell you how JP and SLANT made some serious cool on King Street.
This morning at 9AM, we officially launched a new website and brand for the City of Spartanburg, SC. SLANT was awarded the bid back in April to design a more user-friendly and vibrant website that would allow the City to more easily connect with its residents.
At CO, brainchild of Charleston restauranteur Greg Bauer, the Vietnamese word for 'feast' couldn't have been a more appropriate name…'cause it's a feast for your mouth and your eyes.
Greg Bauer had more than just food in mind when he decided to open an authentic Vietnamese restaurant in the heart of downtown Charleston, SC. He envisioned fresh, authentic and affordable Vietnamese food in a modern chic environment. And since he knew that the look and feel would be just as important as his succulent dishes, he turned to SLANT to establish CO's brand and identity.
After drooling over the menu and signature cocktail recipes, it was evident that this was no ordinary ethnic restaurant. So we not only developed unique logo, but one that truly encompasses what CO is all about. The curvilinear lines that encompass the logo's container were inspired by the curved landforms of Vietnamese rice fields, the flowing shape of the noodles found in the cuisine as well as the feminine eyelash – a nod to the beauties of 1960s Vietnamese cinema. The vibrant red color palette chosen for the logo was such an inspiration for the client, it became the accent color throughout the restaurant itself.
As CO's creative agency of record, we happily do our jobs by stuffing our face with Banh Mi, Pho, and dumplings on a regular basis all while managing and monitoring both print and online advertising campaigns. Through careful design and placement (and very tasty cuisine) CO has seen immense success and has exceeded revenue expectations in the first six months of operation.
So, we'll see you at CO for happy hour then...

If you've been keeping up with TechCrunch, Robert Scoble and other tech/social news in the past few weeks, you've probably heard a bit about Quora.com. SLANT took a tour to see what all the fuss was about.
What is Quora?
It's a social forum where registered users can ask questions and provide answers. Wikipedia does this, but it has a relatively small pool of contributors. With Quora, you're welcome to provide an objective answer, but Quora acknowledges that answers provided by the community may be biased, and they're ok with that. Just follow their three basic principles - embrace Quora as a forum of people who want to learn, contributors should "be nice" and whatever your answer or opinion, just explain why.
Got it? Good. So how does it work? Easy – just type a question in the toolbar and submit.
