You’re Getting a Tablet

I’m really onboard with the idea of tablets and the role they’ll play in our lives (and currently play in mine). I have a bunch, nine to be exact. At one point in time the best option would have TOTALLY been an iPad. Maybe it still is, but I’m not sure it should be an […]

Happy Holiday Marketing

In my marketing career, I’ve had the pleasure of working on big brands in categories where holiday advertising is historically iconic. While working with Pepsi, I always kept a close eye on those Coca-Cola polar bears and what story they would tell that year. With Hershey, the Hershey Kisses “Christmas Bells” commercial was a signal […]

Good Design is Honest

In the midst of the past weeks’ massive headlines—hurricane Sandy, election coverage and Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm—we learned that Apple’s Scott Forstall, the man responsible for much of their leather-bound skeuomorphic craziness, is out. We also learned that Sir Jonathan Ive will tack “Director of Human Interface” onto his current hardware-focused responsibilities. What does this […]

2013 Salt Lake Addys Posters

We proudly participate in the Addys pretty much every year. And each year we hope to win golds from the local to national competitions. That’s easier said than done. Producing great creative is a battle and it’s a struggle with a lot of our precious seedlings scrapped before they can bloom into full grown ideas. But […]

Content for your Content

Put a Bird In It!

WeMake is hosting an awesome initiative for Design Week in Portland (Oregon, of course…) to support the arts in public schools. Everyone who wishes to participate receives a birdhouse template then builds a birdhouse. Those birdhouses are then auctioned off with all proceeds going to those public school art programs through All Hands Raised, First […]

Will work for TOYS!

Working with Entertainment brands on licensing and packaging has its perks. Like taking a field trip to Toys”R”Us all in the name of work! Struck has worked with clients such as DreamWorks Animation, Fox, MGM, Nickelodeon, Sony, Universal and Warner Brothers to create packaging programs for some of the most popular properties. A recent trip […]
