A photographer takes on bureaucrats

Photographer Jan Banning set out to capture people who work in the bureaucracy of the executive branch of government. Sounds like the kind of thing most of us want to avoid as much as possible. His approach shows a lot of insight and compassion for his subjects, and that’s what makes it interesting.

 “I wanted to get as many squares and rectangles in the picture, and in the middle of the straight lines is an individual who has to interpret these regulations … and adds his own character to the room he is working in. … I thought it was an interesting metaphor to have a round person in the surroundings of straight lines. … So I have always considered this to be a conceptual documentary project. Documentary because I’m documenting the world around me, but it is based on a visual concept, so I’m not just going to any office and photographing just anyone.”

The series is called “Bureaucratics” and is currently sold out of it’s second printing. Slate Magazine calls them “The Most Interesting Bureaucratics You’ll Ever See.”

Get free stuff

We’re pleased to announce some new work for the Wyoming Department of Health. Our goal with to increase calls to the Quitline, and once we realized that the majority of the population had no idea that the Quitline provided free cessation medication, our messaging became quite clear: tell them there’s free stuff! From there we developed a campaign that uses comedy and awkwardness to cut through the clutter of today’s visual landscape and remind folks that there’s help out there, FREE help that will get you to finally quit smoking:

(UPDATE: Happy to see this today, and this. Yay for more PR.)

 

Darcel Disappoints

This tumblr blog chronicles small moments in the daily life of Darcel, the egg-shaped alter ego of illustrator Craig Redman. Darcel lives in New York City and his cynical posts reflect what it’s like to live in that sweaty chaotic mess of a town.

Mr. Redman explains that “even though he’s a cartoon character he doesn’t skip down rainbows and chat with butterflies – he finds it hard to wake-up every morning, he lives in a 6 floor walk up, he gets lonely and depressed, just like real life.”

For a simple shape with just one eye, Darcel is shockingly relatable. Check it out.

Bubba's hover

Pretty cool (and creative) way to progress the evolution of the golf cart. For years the design has remained the same, and it takes a forward thinking golfer to buck tradition and come up with a new idea for maneuvering a golf course without damaging the environment. We love free thinkers!

We're famous

We were happy to learn today that our blog was featured on Monitize Pro’s 50 Excellent Ad Agency Blogs Worth Reading. Yay! Thanks for the recognition.

Happy late Easter

I hope those of you with kids took them to see a giant, strange Easter bunny yesterday so they could cry their eyes out and possibly soil themselves or you. See all time creepiest Easter bunny photos HERE. Oh, and if you’re curious about the captions that go along with the photos, the verbal accompaniment with the photo above is: “This bunny’s name is Hopalong Junkpouch.”

Paper sculptures

Here are a few interesting videos about artist Li Hongbo and how he creates his stretchy paper sculptures. Clever use of paper to create stunning art.

We are not scientists

However, we do like science when it ventures into our realm: visual amazingness.

Caine's Arcade

Well, it’s Friday and we at Sukle get close to another week of hard work. Lately we’ve been extremely busy, and when we are it means we’re cranking out tons of work. And what our jobs revolve around is, simply put, creativity. It doesn’t matter what your role is here, you are required to think creatively on a daily basis, to flex your grey matter. So, it’s no surprise this video really resonated with us. It’s quite a heart warming little watch, and naturally we were all enamored by this little boy and his wonderful little, creative cardboard arcade. What’s even more amazing about this story is part 2: world wide endorsement. This story has inspired a fund to help foster children’s creativity, and seems to be spreading like crazy. We clicked the ‘like’ button on this one.
