WORK Labs – Oddities

Updating our WORK Labs website, we have been searching through our portfolio looking for just the right examples of, not just our client pieces, but our own products and creations. One collection that stuck out for me was the Oddities folder. We’ve put a fun twist on everything from essentials, like Daily Water, to the straight up random and quirky, like our Picnic Anywhere blanket and our Air Sample Kit…yes, AIR. Hey, I said, quirky! These concepts were not only for our own amusement, but for client projects as well. Like our Truth Reels fishing t-shirt that boasts the type and weight of the fish you’ve caught, or the Radio Mercury Award, created to distinguish advertising achievements of certain agencies in the radio industry. My personal favorite? The WORK Labs Stress Relief Kit. Tell me you couldn’t decompress from opening a can of that!

If you’re a regular to this blog, then I’m sure you are well aware who WORK Labs is and what we do. For those of you checking us out for the first time, WORK Labs is a creative brand agency, specializing in advertising and rebranding for businesses large and small. But what some may not realize is that while we love bringing clients’ brands to life, we also enjoy creating our own products and bringing them to market. WORK Labs has created everything from office supplies and novelty items to soaps and apparel. It’s important to us to truly practice what we preach, and we do that by taking our own creative ideas and following them through from concepting to design, to production and point of sale. We’ve even teamed up with some our clients to help create new WORK Brand items (like Richmond Soap Studio for our WORK Soap, Dirty Soap, and OUCH Soap). Nothing is more exciting to us than thinking and creating for our clients and ourselves!
