These ads for Alka Seltzer are merely a new twist on the ol’ stop-motion-shoot-something-and-it-explodes technique, but we thought close ups of food blowing up was pretty neat-o. Funny, too, it’s an Alka Seltzer they fire thru the food. Check this link for other shots.. 

Better than orange juice.

Yep, fresher than most juices you’ll find in any store: it’s Mouth Juice! Milked straight from the chew hole. We put these bottles around high traffic Wyoming spots, Schools, and on pumps at gas stations in the state. Aside from being real cool and therefore often thefted, they seemed to be a great hit in the state and got folks talking about how nasty the habit of chewing or dipping tobacco is. Just what we were hoping would happen.

St. Jeff E's day

We at Sukle want to celebrate two things today: one, well, obviously, it’s St. Paddy’s Day. Here, here for all our Irish brethren. And, the second reason is we’ve got another new member of the Sukle team!!! We’d love to welcome Jeff Euteneuer to our crew. He’s the newest addition to our Art Director arsenal, and we’re excited to have him. He’s worked at some great shops, like Factory, and been a part of some real cool work for great brands. So, welcome Jeff, and welcome green champagne. Both were enjoyed liberally this AM instead of status meeting. Gotta love Paddy’s day.

skittles once again:

Wednesday, March 12th, 2008

We’ve always found skittle ads to be pretty darn hilarious, and on point for their market of mostly younger-types, guzzling sugar and watching wacky TV. Anyway, this one gave us a kick this AM and we thank skittles for letting the folks at TBWA/Chiat Day make ads that are so strangely entertaining. Kudos. Thanks to the Egotist for pointing this one out to us.

2- ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE

We’re looking for an Account Executive with 3-5 years of Agency Experience

If you’ve figured out that what a client wants isn’t necessarily what they say they want, and can move ahead fearlessly. If you can find the most compelling message and make sure the client understands why it’s the most compelling message. If you have a passion for creative, and consider it your primary objective to fight to get that creative produced. And can do all the other important stuff like manage projects start to finish, keep track of the details, budget, estimate, bill, forecast and write a great creative brief then we really want to hear from you.

Old bikes are neato.

We were shopping for a vehicle for a campaign and came across these cool old bikes. This guy finds old military stuff and renovates it, mostly vehicles. But, on top of the tanks and personnel carriers, he’s got a whole ton of world war era bikes. They are super cool military bikes, complete with pump, generator and tool kit. Just thought we’d mention ‘em because we love bikes over here at Sukle, and are very excited to break ‘em out, dust ‘em off and get to riding this spring. I also thought I’d mention that these bad boys are pretty spendy (350-400$) for a super old cruiser. They appear to be single speed tho, so they will totally fit in for all you fixed gear, single speed bike hipsters out there. check the bikes out here.

So, we like to spend free time surfing Gigposters.com looking for inspiration or just something cool to ogle. Usually we find plenty on this tasty site. Today we’ll talk about the Heads of State. We like what they have going on, and really enjoy surfing their site and checking out their poster designs. Very cool. We love what they are doing with screenprinting ink and paper.
