Toilets On Toilet Day

DW-Toilets0015DW-Toilets0024 DW-Toilets0016

Seeing as how today is world toilet day, it’s a fitting time to unveil some new work. The assignment was to raise awareness that Denver Water is offering $75 rebates to encourage people to switch to high-efficiency toilets. To promote these rebates, we created long copy bus shelter ads. To make sure people actually read them, we installed toilets right in front of the ads, because we all know toilets and reading are BFFs.

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.

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.

Ned Breslin’s story: becoming a social entrepreneur

social-disrupters-interior

At Sukle, we are grateful to have the opportunity to work with visionary clients — people who know that to make change in the world, you’re going to come across a few roadblocks. One such client is Ned Breslin, CEO of Water For People. Ned attributes his success as a social entrepreneur to lessons he learned in the mosh pit. Listen to the entire story of his path from punk rocker to social entrepreneur in the first installment of his podcast series called “The Social Disruptors.” Ned’s approach to storytelling is unexpected, and very real. Have a listen for yourself.

NedBreslin 4Ned Breslin received the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship in 2011. Water For People and Breslin were honored for their work in creating sustainable, locally-maintained water and sanitation solutions in developing countries.

Congrats to our friends at Noodles & Company

Recently they went public and their stock price promptly doubled.

Our relationship with Noodles & Company started in 1998, when Aaron Kennedy, the founder, hired Sukle to create an engaging brand for his concept. The restaurant chain had just two locations and we were a young agency, hungry to make our mark. We didn’t care that the budgets were small. In fact, their very first noodle doodle ads were created by scanning dried pasta on our flatbed scanner. Over the course of the next 10 years, they grew and we grew with them. Noodles grew from two restaurants to over 200. The budgets got larger and the work better.

Many of our philosophies about marketing, media and brand momentum were developed from working with Aaron and his talented team. It was a great ride. We’ll always be fans of Noodles & Company and wish them continued success.

Mike Sukle Interview on Osocio.org

In the early days, when we first started working for social good, with NSCD, the Arc and RAAP, we considered Osocio the authoritative voice on social marketing. We still do, many years later. Osocio is an online hub where thinkers from around the globe write about public health efforts and non-profit campaigns. Marc Van Gurp, the founder, has written about Sukle’s Denver Water campaign every year, except one, since the campaign’s inception in 2006. Today, they post an 8-year retrospective of the Denver Water campaign, along with an interview with Mike Sukle, Creative Director and President of Sukle Advertising.

Mike-Osocio

“We’ve always been more interested in the challenge of a problem or the potential of something than the budget or type of industry a client may be in. And we’ve always felt that advertising could be used for good.” —Mike Sukle

We are proud to have Osocio’s ongoing support, and to be included along side the best communicators in the field.

Bikes

bikesWell, it’s summer and that means it’s bike season here in Denver. Some of the most hardcore Denverites will brave the winter on 2 wheels, but once it’s warm the bikes come out in droves, which makes us all happy. There’s always a plethora of bicycles hanging around the shop, and so these illustrations by Minnesota designer Jacob Boie seemed very fitting. Check out his portfolio, there’s some nice stuff in there.
