THIS IS OBLIQUE

JEN LEIGH WATKINS

the knowledge behind the brand

OBLIQUE is designed with small and independent businesses in mind. We deliver all the services of a agency, with a genuine understanding of the problems you are facing - because we've been there too.

Bringing over 20 years experience in launching and sustaining brands through treacherous economic climates, we couple our solutions with access to knowledge, insights and contacts gained over many years.

It’s this personal offering that allows us to look in depth at what’s achievable within your budget, and offer you advice on where to focus your time and money. By understanding your constraints, we can suggest the most practical solution. One tailor-made for your brand.

OBLIQUE reflects how I approach each project; by looking at it from a fresh angle.
