This year, Oxbow had the opportunity to partner with some inspiring organizations doing powerful and important work. We’ve helped our clients to advocate for the world’s most endangered species, give American people a voice for immigration reform, and fight deadly diseases–to name a few.

Along the way, we experimented with new mediums, strategies, and communications technologies. Some failed. Some were wildly successful. But they all helped us, and our clients, to grow and differentiate.


Bates College

Holiday cards are nice, but in the interest of saving trees, we teamed up with Bates College to create an unforgettable holiday piece in the form of a 360º VR sleigh ride through their iconic Maine campus. Throw on your VR headset, or simply click around in the video below… but beware the snowball of doom.



Panthera is the only organization in the world devoted exclusively to protecting the world’s wild cats and the landscapes they inhabit. Oxbow partnered with Panthera to craft several campaigns this year to drive awareness, raise funds, and ensure a future for the world’s big cats. Check out our work for Let Lions Live, Giving Tuesday, and the Million Dollar Challenge.

Vpr next

Vermont Public Radio is a Vermont institution – an essential and trusted independent voice for news, information, music and cultural exploration that boasts the most listeners per capita of any public media outlet in the country. VPR and Oxbow teamed up to launch VPR Next, a $10,000,000 fundraising campaign with a goal to transform the sound of Vermont’s future.


TED talks 2016

In February of 2016, the world’s greatest and most daring minds gathered in Vancouver, BC for TED2016: Dream. This year, speaker presentations centered around the big things: black hole collisions, artificial intelligence, space archeology and beyond. Oxbow was tasked with some pretty big things ourselves: bring the stages to life. Using a mix of media, Oxbow worked with three main-stage speakers: organizational psychologist Adam Grant, narrative photographer Stephen Wilkes, and neuroscientist Uri Hasson. Together, we distilled high-flying concepts into simple, beautiful ideas through intentional design. But don’t take our word for it, view our work for TED2016: Dream and see for yourself.
