New Stuff and Inspiration
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).
So, this is an annual report that you have to bake in order to read first. Naturally, it’s for a food company, but is a really cool idea. The ink is thermo-reactive and requires heating before it shows up. The annual is actually baked to get the art to show. Read more and see more pics here.
Thanks to Adgoodness for the skinny on this..
Woop woop. newbies in the house.
We at Sukle are real happy to announce yet another new face. New to the roster is Amy Neujahr (say it with me: “new-jar”), fresh off the boat…er, plane….from San Francisco. She’s worked with big clients like Clorox at great shops, like DDB, and we’re hyped up that we’ve got her on OUR team now. She’s a new added force to our Account Executive crew, and we are pumped to have her rocking in the Sukle world.
It’d be a farce to even try to hide that we are real excited about our new cohorts here, and we’re even more excited to be plugging more pieces into the puzzle that we call the “Sukle dreamteam”. Domination is imminent.
First in-house screenprinting job!
We have done our first screenprinting job down in the dregs of the Sukle basement and we’re psyched how it worked out. We’ve been printing lots in conjunction w/ T2P in Boulder, but it’s supa sweet to have a spot in Denver to do some paint pushing.
This poster was the first “official” Sukle screenprint job, and was for the Highlands neighborhood just north of downtown. We are basically located in Highlands, so it was fun to work on something for our ‘hood. We enjoyed contributing to the local scene, and are even more fired up to continue pumping out some sweet hand made propaganda downstairs. Stay tuned for more radicalness.
Posters are on sale around the Highlands Square shops, so if you’re ’round there and like it, go get one. They’re really cheap ($25) for a hand printed piece of art.
Yet another logo revamp. This one is surely minor as well as the NFL one we showed in earlier posts, but again a seemingly impoved mark. Seems a little more whimsical and playful (it IS a toy store after all) now, and the colors are nicer now, too. Seems improved…..but can’t help to wonder how to get some of these uber-large corps to start having us at Sukle do some of these rebrands. They seem to be major high visibility jobs, prob packing great budgets, and seemingly easier tasks, design-wise. To me, it seems much simpler to move a few elements around on a logo than to try to invent the wheel.
So, for all you big logo re-design needers out there: we’re interested.
