A Puppy Petting Party!

Last year during Design Week Portland, Owen Jones brought you the sweet, fuzzy joy of a Kitten Kissing Booth. That’s right—a Kitten Kissing Booth. In which you could kiss kittens whilst having your picture taken. We asked ourselves, “How can we possibly top that?”

The answer: A Puppy Petting Party.

Stop by Owen Jones on April 25th in Old Town for cold beer, good times, sweet pups, pooch-related treats, and an inside look at the agency’s finest work. Even better, it’s all to support the Oregon Humane Society, who’ll be supplying the guests of honor. That means you’re very welcome to adopt your paw-recious new friends. (There might even be pugs.)


Kitty Kissing Booth, Thank You!

Our Design Week Portland Open House last week was full of kissing, kittens and plenty of new friends!

Thank you to everyone who came to our event supporting the Oregon Humane Society. We raised some serious kitten cash and helped adopt out all five beauties that visited our office.

Don’t forget you can donate to the Oregon Humane Society anytime on their website.

Check out everyone’s smoochy kitty face on our Kitty Kissing Page.

Brand Storytelling Deserves A Great Chair (Of Course)

We recommend viewing this video: Owen Jones on Copywriting, with a drink in one hand and preferably a bowl of Bananas Owen in the other. This last reference will make more sense shortly. Video voice-over by none other than ECD Peter Dean.

If you would like to find out what chairs we here at Owen Jones & Partners use to craft the brand storytelling messages for our clients, we can be reached at (503) 481-5415 or Or, just leave a comment on our blog.

Owen Jones and Opal launch new site just in time for SXSW


Portland, Oregon-based Opal’s Marketing Director Scott Townsend invited Owen Jones & Partners to join forces and augment the start-up’s brand expression with a new website. The project included researching, consulting, debating–and finally–refining the company’s brand story and bringing it to life with a new website.

Admittedly, as a branding and campaign development agency, we at Owen Jones got pretty excited about Opal’s technology. The Opal Story First approach and their platform is a huge asset for anyone working in the brand campaign game at enterprise-class organizations. The level of visibility, control and workflow efficiency the Opal platform provides is remarkable.

This was a very collaborative endeavor. We all agreed early on that we should leverage the gorgeous user experience that is the Opal Platform as a base for the branding. From concept, to design comps, to messaging, to animation and iconography, the Owen + Opal team worked tightly together to quickly get Phase 1 of the Opal website up in time for its SXSW debut.

You can check out some of the work below. See the live site HERE. 

And–stay tuned for Phase 2 of the Opal website later this Spring.
