Denver Water: Waste is Out

Denver Water: Waste is Out


This is a new part of the ongoing campaign to save water from Denver Water (USA).

With the recession still lingering fresh in consumers’ minds, frugality is en vogue like never before. But rather than use a highfalutin phrase like “Frugality is en vogue” to rally Denverites, we [Sukle Advertising & Design] went with “Waste is out” to spearhead this summer’s Denver Water conservation campaign.

To demonstrate the proposition and lead by example, we reused old billboards and placed a thin vinyl snipe over the existing art, using only 8% of the vinyl that a newly printed board would. Of course, we couldn’t have pulled it off without the help of Anthony’s Pizza, Fairmount Cemetery, Qdoba, Steamboat Ski Resort and our amigos at Cultivator and Xuma Communications. Thanks for helping us use only what we need, y’all.
