Another way to promote water conservation

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

This video is in Spanish but you don’t need the words to get the idea. One less flush per day in a household saves over 4,000 litres of water a year. So, go ahead. Pee in the shower.

Sometimes the old stuff is just better.

I read on thedieline.com that General Mills had released some of it’s retro cereal boxes, which I find fabulous. Apparently they started with throwback big head boxes for some of their sugar bomb varieties, and they must have been popular, as they’ve seemingly done a few more flavors of cereal as a result. There’s a few more shots over at thedieline.com for you to look at. I’m really digging the old school wheaties box a lot, as well as this Kix box. This gets me wondering, why in the world has cereal packing design gotten so busy and terrible? It’s almost information overload, and it’s sad when you see how beautifully simple the old packages were.

If you can't eat bacon, wear bacon

If I were to go back to being a carnivore, the first (and likely only) meat product I would eat is bacon. Since that event is unlikely, this “unsettlingly real-looking” bacon scarf might just fulfill my deep-seated bacon desires.

Sigh…bacon.

GoLite Biz Cards

As part of a brand refresh for Boulder based outdoor company GoLite, Sukle designed some collateral including employee business cards. To personalize them we had each employee write a thought on how they GoLite. The line appears in his/her respective handwriting.

And to convey the company philosophy of using less to cut weight and waste, we made the cards half the size (height) of a standard card. By our calculations that’s 50% less paper used, not to mention half the weight.

We also redesigned the GoLite catalog site which will launch in a couple weeks.

Something I wish I designed:
