A few months ago I discovered a wonderful little creative shop in Denver called Sukle Advertising & Design. They do quite a bit of government-sponsored work, like for water preservation or anti-smoking initiatives. I’m hoping they get a more substantial client soon. They seem to have some nice talent over there — as evidenced by their most recent work for the Wyoming Department of Health.
The idea is simple: make the term “secondhand smoke” synonymous with death. Literally. These outdoor boards do just that, replacing the word death or one of its derivatives with the term secondhand smoke in common idioms or phrases. There were several of these, but these two are my favorites. Special kudos to copywriters Jim Glynn and Zac Spector.
