New Stuff and Inspiration
And, they have good ads?
We here at Sukle are big fans of the Stella Artoris, this is for sure. And, this summer as I stumbled around Italy, I noticed some really, really sweet posters and ads up in some clandestine, and some not so clandestine, spots for this lovely malt beverage. Unfortunately, I have no pics to show of this (d’oh), but i did pull up this poster. The idea for the campaign was hatched, apparently, by Lowe London in London. But, the design was done by our favs, Aesthetic Apparatus. Man, these guys just keep rocking it. Anyway, will look for some more of them and post- all of ’em I saw were top notch.
live music on the net. neat.
Our buddy Paul Isakson sent me this link today. Cool live vids of some indie sorts of bands.. and all playing ‘informal’ shows out on the street. It’s called Blogotheque, and it’s made by Frenchies. I’m linking you to the English page, assuming most of you aren’t speaking French much these days.
See them here.
kid friendly, not rated aaaaarrrrrrrrrgh!
We recently put some temporary tattoos up on the site we did for Denver Water (UseOnlyWhatYouNeed.org. If you haven’t been, go- free UOWYN swag and games and such) and have been getting some mail from folks with them on. Feel free to send them in if you have any shots….. we prefer kid friendly shots, but we will look at anything once.
The tattoos are all spoofs of traditional tattoo themes, only using conservation and water issues as the slogans or concepts. And yes, I know all of you have always wanted that tribal armband tattoo (god, how the ladies adore them), so, we’ve def included one, as well as gothic gangsta letters to go across your stomach. Note, they work best where no hair is growing, so all you wanna be gangstas, pls get a stomach wax before application (yikes!).
Living green doesn't just mean wearing burlap.
We found some cool sites using green/enviro friendly materials to make stuff that’s actually cool.
Scrapile is a company in Brooklyn that gathers scraps from most furniture producers in their areas, then laminates the scraps together and makes really cool furniture.
Mioculture has cool home accessories. check it.
6 slab friday.
We took it upon ourselves to search the metro area for the best BBQ this summer. Ribs were sampled, fingers licked. We were on the quest to find the best around. And guess what? The best was right under our noses the whole time!
Today we had 6 slab friday and our resident in-house retouch master, production stylist and grilled meats uber pro (a.k.a. Matt) whipped us up the best ribs I’ve had since back home in GA. Wow, these guys rocked. We managed to mow them all, and now feel like we could all use a nap.
Attention poster people.
Seeing as how some of us here at Sukle are kinda poster nerds, we love to cruise Gigposters.com, surf our some of our favs sites (more to come on who these people are in future- stay tuned and we’ll turn you on. For now, see Aesthetic Apparatus) and, of course, print our own. In our cruising, we’ve found a cool event those of you out there who actually read this may wanna go to (does anyone actually read this? who knows.)
Tomorrow night at CSU is the 15th Biennial Colorado International Invitational Poster Show. It’s got works of 87 artists from 31 countries. We’re guessing it’s gonna be rad. Go if you don’t have plans- there should be lots of cool stuff to buy, and it’s first come first serve, so Giddyup! Here’s the link, so you can read up yourself.
Thank you for NOT smoking
We just did these cards for the state of Wyoming. With the little bit they had left in the budget, we wanted to create something fun the communities themselves could have and pass out in clandestine locations where folks smoke, like bars, restaurants, etc. Yes, they still smoke inside in Wyoming. I know, I know, I remember how my clothes used to smell after a long night at the bar, too.
They were really fun for us, as we got to use scratch n’ sniff (the cookie smells like nothing- back: smoking inhibits your senses and skin one says “you” and when you scratch/sniff it smells absolutely HORRIBLE) and all sorts of fun processes. Some address smoking, some mouth tobacco. One even has a stick on Stoma…might as well try it before you start smoking, right?
Stakes might be small, but skills are BIG.
So, i just thought I’d post a tidbit of inspiration today. If you’re not framilar with this guy *Jason Munn* then check out his work. His company goes by the name The Small Stakes, and I think he’s a master of striking, simple concepts. Beautiful stuff. I know we at Sukle get much inspiration from work like this, as well as my boys and I over at T2P.
Anyway, was just looking at the site and thought I’d share.
Some toilet footage>
SO, as promised, we’ve some footage of toilet boy gettin a lick put on him by the security guard at the CU v CSU game. funny stuff. We’re still working on footage from the cameras in stadium and will have that up sometime soon, too.
We're all singing "I, M, C, A"
We’re real proud to announce our redesign of IMCA’s overall identity. While we made very minor adjustments to their logo, per their insistence, and we’ve redone all the collateral, including letterhead/biz cards and conference brochures.
This company certifies investment professionals, so the look and main graphical elements allude to the ups and downs of the fiscal marketplace, while still feeling strong, powerful and knowledgeable, which is how certified IMCA professionals would like to be perceived.
