The company was founded in 1999 by Sam Hurt and Jude Biddulph
Both Hurt and Biddulph graduated from Central St Martins College of Art and Design, London in 1996. Following a chance meeting as postgraduates they exchanged ideas and established a similar career direction resulting in a mutual agreement to collaborate their work. They moved into a North London bedsit and from there they began to produce prototypes and establish the rudiments of supply and distribution. The talented partnership proved a success and their hard work and commitment rewarded them with growth in productivity . In 2002 they left their bedsit behind and moved into offices in London's modish East End. To date the company has worked production initiatives for Coca-Cola, Nike, Inc and Speedo.
SUCK UK endeavours to maintained a culture of modernism and to exert efforts in remaining at the leading edge of product design. Problem solving the use of everyday appliances has become characteristic of the company. To maximise convenience is essential, notwithstanding their unique humour and quirky approach in product development.
