Located on Buffalo’s Westside, Urban Roots is a co-op gardening supply store that sells indigenous plants, heirloom vegetables, and gifts. Our relationship with Urban Roots began when the general manager, Patti Jablonski-Dopkin, started exploring options to market and grow their business. She came to OtherWisz hoping to gain a better understanding of their brand, so we introduced her to our Brand Audit & Marketing Strategy process.
Buffalo, NY – OtherWisz Creative principals and husband and wife team Mark and Jill Wisz have announced their full-service creative studio has relocated to a 4,000-square-foot space on the fourth floor of the Gutman Building at 19 Elm Street in downtown Buffalo.

Designing a company’s existing visual brand is always an exciting project. It gives our team the opportunity to direct how a company presents itself to the world, rewriting their unique visual language. Changing a company identity encompasses logo, colors, typography, tagline & messaging — these adjustments directly and subliminally communicate the company’s values and personality. This is not an easy task and it is one that comes with extensive research and a good amount of trust.
Buffalo, NY – OtherWisz Creative Corporation, a marketing and design studio specializing in identity and website design, announce that they have been hired by Portland, Oregon’s Benson Industries to audit their brand, create a new identity system and website and to improve the global marketing of their products and services.

We play together. We win together. We lose together. We stay together.
It can be a challenge to create an installation that will only be seen by a limited audience. Most of the exhibit design, interior space or trade show/event design projects that OtherWisz Creative works on are designed for maximum exposure. We are hoping a lot of people will see it, enjoy it and talk about it!
The OtherWisz Creative team is working on an installation project for the Buffalo Sabres Alumni Room at the Key Bank Center in downtown Buffalo, New York. This post is the first part in a series of posts on our experience concepting, designing, building & installing this project in time for the 2017-18 NHL hockey season.
Successful website design is not only visually interesting but has well-organized content. Our role as the designer is to employ various tools of hierarchy to create a “path” for the viewer to follow, making sure they receive information in a logical order with an emphasis on what you’ve deemed most important.
When Otherwisz Creative designs a logo and brand identity for a client, a lot of time and thought goes into the project. We take the time to research the company’s background, products and services, brand positioning (where they fit in the marketplace) and competition. Our design team gathers all this data and uses it to explore concepts for a logo design and accompanying visual brand elements (fonts, colors, photo styles, etc).
The OtherWisz team put their heads together to come up with some awesome e-vites this year for our annual holiday party. Each designer came up with their own concept and then turned it into an animated GIF to create a festive invitation. If you are familiar with our design team, can you guess who created each of these animations?
Congratulations to our award-winning team here at OtherWisz Creative! At this year’s local 2015 ADDY Awards sponsored by the Ad Club of Buffalo we brought home a SILVER in the Collateral, Brochure category for the new version of the Boston Valley Terra Cotta TerraClad book.
