CEO, Oniracom in Santa Barbara

Why The Lagoon District?

PRESENTED ON AUG 17, 2016
IN SANTA BARBARA @ VOL 18

Jacob Tell, CEO and co-founder of a Santa Barbara creative agency, Oniracom, speaks about the inspiration behind the Lagoon District. This up and coming area of Santa Barbara is home to commercial, industrial and residential locals. The history of area influenced the branding, as street names such as Laguna, Quarantina, and Salsipuedes pay homage to the past lagoon-style flooding of the neighborhood.

As an agency CEO, Jacob has studied and worked within the cultural transition from analog to digital, so his insight translates across demographics. Jacob’s expertise in marketing and production helps organizations of any size — from solopreneurs to global brands — build authentic communities and communicate effectively to their audience.

Not Exactly Chit Chat

BY NILS HAMMERBECK
@ VOL 12 ON OCT 29, 2014

Not exactly chit chat: An architect's rant on the Santa Barbara Design Review process.
Nils Hammerbeck is an architect who lived in Santa Barbara from 2001-2008. He then got disenchanted with a town that felt like Disney Land due to the design process feeling like a fight against the vulgarities of suburbia. Facing a mid-life crisis in career choice in the midst of the recession, he left for the good part of 4 years, building with bamboo at festivals around the world and living in Costa Rica where the design process is far more free than here. He’s now back living in S.B., has opened a local office again, and just needs to vent a few things about local politics...He hopes that you save your tomatoes for soup...
