Augmented Reality
Blurring the lines of real-world and the virtual we can allow a user to hold a virtual product and look at it from every angle as if they were in a store. Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment merged with virtual computer-generated imagery, creating a mixed reality.

Identity
Just like people, some brands have style - and some don't. Having a distinct personality helps brands stand out from the crowd and create an emotional connection with their audiences. But to do it well, you need people that understand design and how to use it. Brand Standards include typography, color palette, illustration and/or photography treatments, layouts, formats and other graphic elements that make a brand immediately distinguishable from its competition - and from anything else, for that matter.

We live in a connected and seamless media world and thus should your brand. Digital technology continues to change the way brands connect with their audiences. We help our clients identify the best online vehicles for their messages and their audiences.

CAREERS

OI Marine is keeping an eye out for people who see the world a little differently, for whom design is not work, but a love affair, the kind of person who lives for great design and is always striving to improve. OI thinks outside the box, so we also work with individuals outside our radar range. So, if you are a freelancer in either one of our local areas or even overseas, who's skills are not being appreciated, here at OI Marine we will respect you for your talents and unique personality.
