New Stuff and Inspiration
Just heard this:
AIGA Colorado is bringing Stefan Sagmeister, a globally acclaimed graphic designer (even a Grammy), to speak Mar. 7 and to promote his new book.
We at Sukle bow in reverence to this master. He truly is inspiring.
Can you believe this is not a photo?
This guy’s ink drawings are truly amazing. They look so real, and are drawn with only a blue ballpoint pen. Good stuff.
We just wanted to say that a few of us Sukloids gathered for the big game to inhale trans fat items and beer, and to watch the game/ads. The superbowl is always a bit of a bittersweet event: it’s the championship, but also the LAST football game for months. So, it’s always sad realizing there’ll be no more weekends of gluttonous TV watching. But, the upside is that you usually see some pretty groundbreaking and entertaining commercials. Seeing as how we like to make ads, this is a big day for us, this Superbowl Sunday.
Well, this year, ad-wise, we rank it a C-. And that’s being nice. The game was great (love seeing Brady eat turf), but the ads let us down. Hardly any were worth remembering, and very few were even funny. For all the millions spent and HUGE agency participation, we were expecting much more. Weak sauce, adworld, weak sauce.
Pump toppers tell you how nasty chew is.
Some new chew work is going up this week in Wyoming. Pump toppers, posing as old metal signs, profess the nasty attributes of a chewer’s mouth. Not only do they look cool, but they are educational!
We like positive reviews:
We were sent this link from a librarian’s blog, and we found it pretty cool. Yes, it’s more praise for our Denver Water Use Only What You Need work. Yes, it’s on another blog. We weren’t sharing to pat ourselves on the back again, but merely because we found it cool that someone in another market and another industry all together “got it” enough to write about it on their blog (and in a really informed way).
Makes us feel good when our work really is doing what it should- working.
O master of timesheets, timeliest of timely timesheeting timesheeter. Congrats to Matt for really staying present on his timesheets and showing us all how it should be done. We’ve hereby nominated, and voted him in, as employee of the month (first ever distinction at Sukle). Not because he’s one of the most wicked retouch-master-pixel-wranglers in the west, but because he shames us with his neatness and precision timesheet skills.
Sometimes a few pieces of bacon just aren't enough.
So, someone at the Instructables.com decided they’d make a whole place mat out of it. First you consume your tasty meal, then, when you finish you meal, you encore with the placemat, which is conveniently made of delicious pork bellies. mmmmmm, pork. Anyway, this has no practical or real use in the world, but simultaneously is one of the coolest things ever. Better with bacon.
ps- the third pic w/ the uncooked baconmat is sweetness. Love weaved pork.
Art directors make clothes of papers
We saw that the paper fashion show for the ADCD was doing calls for entries and we thought it looked pretty cool. It’s a new way to express a creative concept, and besides, everyone loves to see hot ladies w/ mucho papercuts. Think the Sukle crew should be present for some paper fashion, and I’m personally hoping for a return of paper knickers (after one wear, they visit the compost heap).
Well, hello world. We at Sukle have been on a bit of a hiatus over here- we had a long Xmas break and have returned to working feverishly on some fun projects. Please stay tuned as we return to the bloggosphere and will soon be relighting the blog flame over here. Oh, how we’ve missed you.
Sidenote: We had a great 07′ and are VERY excited about what’s to come in ’08. We will keep you all in the loop as new and exciting things happen for Sukle. Happy New Year everyone.
Sukle love Christmas
Well, it’s that time of year: the one where people put on sweaters, drink some strange egg-based booze concoctions, eat cookies and attend company and friend gatherings. Well, once again Michon has outdone herself preparing a festive event in the House of Sukle: the Third Annual Sukle party to honor employees, clients, friends of Suklites, cohorts, cronies, posse members and pals is slated to go off on Friday. We here in Sukleville are always looking forward to what silly happenings will go on at the party. Last year Mike wore a full length fur and pranced about….this year we’re pulling for elf tights. We are having DJ AdaPT spin some tunes, and we’re all really looking forward to the fun. And the ho, ho, hos (sorry, couldn’t resisit).
