Earth Day 2017

Since Oniracom's inception, a major part of our practice as a company is being environmentally friendly. As a result, we are big supporters of Earth Day and several other sustainability projects. This weekend marks our 7th Santa Barbara Earth Day collaboration with the Community Environmental Council.

For many companies the cost of going green can put some places out of business, but as more businesses join the movement, it is becoming easier. The market for environmentally friendly products has skyrocketed over the last decade. Consumers have become much more aware of their negative impact on nature and are choosing sustainable products more often every day. 

At Oniracom, we strive to be as environmentally conscious and sustainable as possible. We reduce our use of plastics by utilizing water bottles and tote bags. We encourage each other to walk or bike to places close by as well as carpooling to further locations. Ultimately, we all benefit from the peace of mind we experience by doing our part in improving and preserving our environment.

Oniracom Presents a new logo for Data Hardware Depot!

Our in-house lead designer, Keir DuBois recently helped upgrade and refresh the color scheme and design for Data Hardware Depot's logo. They decided to move away from using their full company name by shortening it to DHD. They wanted to make the letters green with the "H" standing out to emphasize their focus on hardware products, and tie in their environmental connections with color.

Photo Shoot Mondays - Santa Barbara Bar

Mondays don’t typically have the reputation for being the best day of the week, but yesterday, we had a great day! Oniracom spent all day with our new client, the Santa Barbara Bar, to do a lifestyle photo shoot in the beautiful Santa Barbara. Working with the talented photographer Lexus Gallegos, we are creating a campaign for the tasty and nutritious bars. We are excited to be working with this amazing bar brand that’s local to our hometown!

Santa Barbara Bar founder, Peter Gaum has owned a wholesale bakery in Santa Barbara for 20 yeas. He created the bars as a delicious and healthy snack for friends and family, but it has turned into a local phenomenon, taking the area by storm. Not only are the bars full of flavor, but they are also gluten-free, a good source of protein and fiber, and contain no added soy protein of refined sugars. Right now there are three flavors: Coconut Almond, Peanut Chocolate Cherry, and Cranberry White Chocolate. We thank Santa Barbara Bar for stocking Oniracom full of these delicious bars, because we can’t stay out of the kitchen!

Check out the Santa Barbara Bar website here to see where you can find the bars-in store (or order online). Below are some of pictures from our photo shoot, check them out!
