New Stuff and Inspiration
We’re happy to announce we were featured in the OBIEs again this year. Both our Wyoming Department of Health and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo campaigns were included, and we’re proud to have our work recognized alongside some of the best agencies’ in the US. The OBIE Awards recognize creative excellence in out of home advertising and is the oldest awards program in the advertising industry. For more than 120 years, the association has been dedicated to leading and uniting a responsible outdoor advertising industry that is committed to serving the needs of advertisers, consumers, and communities.
We’d just like to take a minute and thank the Wyoming Department of Health and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. They’re great clients and we love working with them to create award winning stuff. Over the years, we’ve been lucky enough to improve the health of Wyoming by featuring programs like smoking cessation, threw with chew and alcohol and drug related initiatives. We’ve also had a lot of fun spreading the word about the amazing and unique zoo experience the folks at CMZ are bringing to Colorado Springs. Thanks for the opportunity to work with you guys.
Mile High Youth Corps
We started a program this winter with Metro, and the idea was that we’d partner with a teacher and help find real clients for students to do real work for. The benefit would be mutual- students could create portfolio pieces, and clients with smaller budgets would get some great value on quality work. We would attend some classes and help to mentor the student’s ideas and get a good campaign going.
Then, we had our interns for the spring (the fabulously aforementioned Greg Jesse and Jamie Howe) come in and finish up the production of the “What did you build today” campaign for the Mile High Youth Corps. The idea was to let the public know that MHYC not only helped youths in our community, but that they actually helped to benefit the physical community itself, as well. They plant trees, build trails, help repair homes, create parks- and the list goes on and on. They are building the community, literally.
We think Greg and Jamie did a fantastic job, and we’re quite proud of the work they produced, and are excited to get this work out there- so stay tuned and look for it in your area.
People that shop at Goodwill already know this – you can get awesomely cool stuff for next to nothing. We’re talking name brand, never used or barely used stuff. We captured the feeling of finding something special at Goodwill with this stylish new spot.
Denver 50 likes Sukle
We were excited to be featured in the Denver 50 last night. Sukle managed to get quite a few ideas into the show, which is always very validating and makes all the hard work worth it. While we enjoyed some good accolades last night, we would really like to say a special thanks to our clients. Without them, none of our work would exist. They all are wonderful to us, and are willing to try things that have not been done before, which takes courage. We applaud their insight and confidence in us, and are excited to do more wonderful work with them in the future. Last night’s show featured our Denver Water work, the Good Times rich and cold work and the Cheech & Chong radio, our Cheyenne Mountain Zoo work, the Good Times and the Eco Products sites, and our Goodwill OOH and TV. AWESOME. Thank you Denver, thank you wonderful clients.
Communication Arts Typography Issue
Well, we always love being featured in a publication. Each and every time we’re honored to be see amongst our peers and friends. So, naturally we were quite pleased to learn that some of our Good Times work was included in this year’s Typography Annual for Communication Arts. Thank you CA, and thank you Jon Contino.
