Photo Shoot Mondays - Santa Barbara Bar

Author: hannahr

Mondays don’t typically have the reputation for being the best day of the week, but yesterday, we had a great day! Oniracom spent all day with our new client, the Santa Barbara Bar, to do a lifestyle photo shoot in the beautiful Santa Barbara. Working with the talented photographer Lexus Gallegos, we are creating a campaign for the tasty and nutritious bars. We are excited to be working with this amazing bar brand that’s local to our hometown!

Santa Barbara Bar founder, Peter Gaum has owned a wholesale bakery in Santa Barbara for 20 yeas. He created the bars as a delicious and healthy snack for friends and family, but it has turned into a local phenomenon, taking the area by storm. Not only are the bars full of flavor, but they are also gluten-free, a good source of protein and fiber, and contain no added soy protein of refined sugars. Right now there are three flavors: Coconut Almond, Peanut Chocolate Cherry, and Cranberry White Chocolate. We thank Santa Barbara Bar for stocking Oniracom full of these delicious bars, because we can’t stay out of the kitchen!

Check out the Santa Barbara Bar website here to see where you can find the bars-in store (or order online). Below are some of pictures from our photo shoot, check them out!

This past Sunday marked the end of the 2015 Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival, and it was a remarkable success! Thousands of people came out to Alameda Park in Santa Barbara to learn about how to make a difference in the environment while enjoying tasty foods, shopping at the eco-marketplace, and attending a multitude of concerts and events.

Jacob, Mike and Sean worked hard all week to make sure our Storywall platform was ready for the big weekend! Storywall connected festivalgoers with all the exciting things happening throughout the event such as live music set times, tips for being environmentally friendly, and more. Everyone enjoyed interacting with the platform by sending in photos to be displayed on-screen and by participating in contests with awesome prizes including local gifts from the farmers market and an electric bicycle!

Overall, Earth Day and Oniracom’s participation with Storywall couldn’t have gone better. Thank you to everyone who played a role in this year’s festival, we can’t wait until next year! Check out some of our photos from Earth Day below.

Sonos at Oniracom: Reintroducing Music

Author: keir


Sonos has been a wireless stereo powerhouse in Santa Barbara for over a decade, reinventing audio for the digital age. Here at Oniracom, we’ve been beefing up our music system with Sonos gear since January, and it’s definitely made an impact.

“After I listened to classic albums on our Sonos such as Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, The Doors’ Morrison Hotel, and The Beatles’ White Album I heard new things in the music I never had,” said our CEO Jacob Tell.

It’s that time of year again to celebrate the earth and environment at the 2015 Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival! This Saturday and Sunday (April 18 and 19) at Alameda Park in Santa Barbara, there will be tons of events, concerts, games, exhibits, and classes, — all centered on celebrating the Earth. The Oniracom team has put a lot of work into helping ensure the success of this year’s Earth Day, and we are excited to attend.

The festivities start at 11 a.m. on both days, beginning with Bike Valet. Save gas by riding your bike to the festival and park it for free with the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition. Is your bike broken? Bring it and fix it yourself with the help of local mechanics. If cars are still the preferred method of travel, make sure to check out the Green Car Show where potential customers can get behind the wheel of advanced fueled vehicles such as the Tesla Model S, Nissan Leaf, Toyota hybrids and more!

Visitors can shop at the Eco-Marketplace for green products, technology, gadgets, and clothing and then take a class to learn about healthy, organic cooking. Local bands will take the Main Stage to play all genres of music including, blues, country, rock, reggae, dance, and indie. On Sunday at 12:30, join Snook the Sloth at the Kids Corner to talk about how we can protect the planet. We are proud of Oniracom Video Producer Luke Archer for his efforts in bringing to life the giant sloth with built-in audiovisual technology.

An exciting contribution from Oniracom, developed by CTO Sean Campos, is “Storywall,” a technology platform that we will be beta testing at Earth Day. Story Wall will connect guests to events, allowing them to interact with the Festival in a unique way. Campos is excited to see thousands of people interact Storywall “in the wild.” Visitors can hash tag #sbearthday to see their photos on Storywall, so make sure to check it out! 

CEO Jacob Tell and Chief Business Development Officer Mike Wald made enormous contributions as a part of the Festival’s Marketing and Outreach, promoting music performances, speakers, events, and much more. Tell is excited to see the Kids Parade on Sunday because Oniracom will work with students from the Multimedia Arts & Design Academy to film the Kids Climate March.

Make sure to visit Earth Day and check out all the cool events and a big thanks to everyone at Oniracom who made this event possible! There is something for everyone at this year’s festival, so visit http://www.sbearthday.org/ to start planning your days!
