Yearly Archives: 2008

You better hope you’ve been nice this year.

For the Holidays, a crack team of Struck commandos was dispatched to concept, write, illustrate and print these ferocious cards based on the classic Eastern European tradition of St. Nicholas and the Krampus. While jolly old St. Nick would reward “nice” children with gifts and sweets, the Krampus—Santa’s evil counterpart—would roam the streets with rusty […]

Our home in LA…

We at Axiom love modern architecture, so it was so gratifying to learn that the home of our LA office is located in a building designed by William L. Pereira + Associates. Pereira had a major role in shaping the landscape of post war Los Angeles. His partnership with Charles Luckman spawned the iconic “theme […]


Wanting to support a couple of our favorite things (aside from raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens) Struck approached client Ski Utah to update the design on the Ski Utah Cycling Team uniforms. They gave us to go ahead and even let us sponsor the jersey. Check out them Hammers! Let’s go ride a […]

Breakfast of Champions

My oh my… How this ever slipped through the cracks is a mystery. Can we blame the tardiness on sweeping political change? A recessed global economy? Maybe a sugar stupor is more appropriate… (Get to the point already, please!) Struck PDX loves cereal. Loves it with frosty milk of all varieties—2%, whole, skim, organic. So, […]


So we had track suit day at Struck. No big deal. We are already over it. Actually this wasn’t a themed day of any sort. just a wednesdee at noon at Struck. What?

Snowbird, Utah (top secret)

Salt Lake City. November 5th, 2008. Stop 2 full feet of snow in the hills in the last 48 hours. Stop No signs of stopping. Stop End communication. Stop Stop. Stop.

Botticelli Chocolates at a store near you.

Botticelli chocolates have been off the Struck radar for a few months. We buttoned up on the design, and sent our satisfied client on their way to impress retailers midway through 2008.  Well friends, Botticelli is back on the radar for Christmas inside Walgreen’s corner markets.  This photo depicts the product placement on the front […]

Struck or Treat

EXHIBIT A: Dudes and Shawtees at Struck dominating Halloween. Just a little sprinkling of how we roll here at Struck when it comes to All Hallow’s Eve. On a side note- My Parents ended up getting their “dress-up” on this year. Let’s see…. MY mom was a mummy. My dad was a Werewolf… ummm man, […]

We’re Not Making This Up

So… apparently, there’s a strong group of Callejeros who hit the pavement every Monday night at Kapiolani Park in Honolulu. One of the young street soccer aficionados decided he’d show his brand allegiance with a Halloween costume more radical than any other. Pint-sized brand evangelism. And probably the first time a Struck-designed logo has been […]

Hey, dog. Say hello to your mother for me, okay?

We’re not quite sure how it happened, but there’s a dog roaming the hardwood in PDX today. His name’s Wily Mo, but you can call him Willis. At first we were afraid he’d hamper our typical off-the-charts productivity. Turns out this Pug can do work.
