We are Suka. We create brands, strategy, design, content. We listen. We learn. And we love our clients. We may be located in SoHo (and wear black from time to time), but we leave our egos at the door. We’re unflappable, and nimble. And we don’t rest until we deliver extraordinary work.

about

capabilities

We create work that tells stories in ways that inspire.
For 20 years, we’ve built trusted partnerships with an extraordinary roster of Fortune 100 companies, financial firms, nonprofit organizations, healthcare providers and institutions of higher learning.

We limit the number of engagements we take so that we can go deep with the organizations we serve — uncovering insights and stories to create uniquely compelling work. To learn more about how we work, watch our video.

Strategy

Our approach to strategy is the foundation of everything we do. Beginning with research that explores brand, business and audience needs, we craft messaging that conveys the essence of an organization, and create strategic design that imparts meaning and inspires interaction.

Branding

Engaging, smart brands tell stories — logo to look, strategy to style guide. We seek the heart of an organization’s story and express it verbally and visually in ways that inspire. And we create a roadmap for you to maintain it over time.

Interactive

E-campaigns to websites, video to interfaces, our interactive work combines meaningful brand and content strategy with cutting-edge design to yield interactive solutions that address business needs and user objectives.

Photo + Video

If a picture is worth a thousand words, video speaks volumes. We bring strategic communication to life with imagery that inspires audiences. And by combining visuals with social media, we make good stories great.

Environmental

Extending a brand story beyond the two dimensions of print or web, our branded installations convey key messages as three-dimensional experiences in galleries, offices, lobbies, public spaces and high-traffic areas.

Annual reports. Capabilities brochures. Fundraising suites. Information graphics. With fresh thinking influenced by today’s highly visual information culture, we create thoroughly engaging print materials. And green printing makes print sustainable.

philosophy

Be true partners.
We thrive on collaboration and the exchange of ideas. We listen for the context and nuance, for the unique qualities that create and transform brands and businesses.

Keep promises.
Our work is on time, on task, on budget. We communicate clearly so that progress and processes are understood. And our senior talent stays engaged throughout the life of
a project.

Deliver.
Our work spurs interaction, builds awareness, raises money, tells stories, moves hearts, inspires thinking, gets recognized, has impact and drives results.

team

We’re an intentionally small team of brand strategists, designers, writers and business experts. (And we really do leave our egos at the door.) In addition, we bring in A-list partners (photographers, videographers, web developers, environmental designers…) as we need them.
