New Stuff and Inspiration

Dogs are neat

Typicall, there’s a few pooches strolling the grounds here at Sukle, so we’re always pleased to come across some visually stunning work that includes them. Hence our posting of this video that’s a tease for the book Shake. The book is filled with hilarious shots of dogs mid-shake, drool a-flyin.

My, how the neighborhood has changed

porchbeerWe used to find Mad Dog 20/20, then Colt 45 on the stoop when we’d come in. Next, it graduated to PBR. Nowadays, this is the kinda stuff we’ll find when we get here in the am. Just a sign of how much this neighborhood has changed in the 12 years we’ve been in this building.

High tech dog collar

Guess it was only a matter of time before you could check in on your dog during the day with your smartphone. Really cool concept.

The Wyoming 8

The Wyoming 8 was a group of cross country runners from the University of Wyoming that were killed by a drunk driver 12 years ago on the 16th of this month. When they died, there was a lot of media attention. Everyone felt so bad for these poor kids and their families. Folks vowed not to drive drunk anymore, that they couldn’t let something like this happen again. And guess what? Since then over 600 more people have been killed by drunk drivers in Wyoming. Apparently people haven’t learned a damn thing from these kids dying.

We knew we needed to take the occasion (the anniversary of the runners’ death) and honor these kids. We also knew by honoring them, we’d be reminding everyone about their untimely desmise, and that they’ve not done a good enough job with driving drunk since then. We were up against a very (very) microscopic budget, but knew we could manage to create something that would get out to people of Wyoming, and hopefully would strike a chord with them. We ran this heavy the week of their death, and so far it’s gotten all sorts of great media coverage, so we’re excited to see if our efforts can help minimize this deadly problem.  Don’t drive drunk, people.

Blazed Driving

This, friends, is one helluva film/psa from New Zealand about the dangers of driving blazed. It’s funny, has great child acting and doesn’t come across as one bit preachy. Well done.

Stay above water

9863106313d949e216b2c5faf19e34151778a796_m We at Sukle are sending love and thoughts to anyone in our home state dealing with flooding today. Things have been crazy around these parts, and many of our own employees are dealing with all sorts of flood problems. Fortunately, our office is located in the ‘highlands,’ so as you could guess we’re ok up here. But, many friends and family are dealing with the repercussions of this crazy backhand from mother nature, and we just wanted to let everyone know we’re thinking about them and sending dry thoughts.

Meet the craftsmen of modern printing

 

Some people say printing is obsolete, but actually it’s become a medium for art. A couple of Sukle’rs were on press at Lithographix in Los Angeles last month. We printed an art book for Cochlear that expresses sound through the medium of print. It just returned from the bindery and it is loud and gorgeous. We were lucky to have some of the best artisans of the trade: Reggie, Chuck, Ron, Frank, Greg and Dennis, with Brian as copilot. They are the craftsmen of modern printing. Their tools —  ink, paper, varnish, and of course, the Mitsubishi 8C CD, which is the size of a school bus, but even noisier. Hey, it’s only printing, but I like it.
