well not DONE done, but done with my location visits/interviews/photo shoots/explorations/research.
the final 5: A&M (laundry), Economy Candy (CANDY), Eisenbergs Sandwich Shop (greasy food), B Cup (coffee and un-greasy food), and J&M Hardware (tools and such).
amazing places, awesome owners, 14 days to finish issues 2-5!
also, yesterday some of you shared with me a times article about mom & pops, so thanks for that. it was an interesting read.
some more variations after hearing some comments (thanks, kids.)
*my favorites thus far! same woodtype-y font from “mom&pop” logo.
i’m thinking something black on white. kind of the opposite of the logo.
2nd round of stickers. played with different types, strokes, and dotted lines, these feel much better to me.
book cover/jacket template: mom&pop_bookwraps
stickers to be distributed by me and others (you?) they go with the overlooked/ supporting the little guy part of Mom & Pop’s inspiration. non-specific to location. thoughts?
working on currently:
1. securing location two, to be visited thursday. (coffee shop on ave. b)
2. stickers for mini “support your local mom&pop” campaign
3. certificates for “mom & Pop” approved business locations
