Depot Follow-up: Don't forget the windows
For the Alaskan Brewing Company's retail store I worked on their interior displays (check them out here) AND their window displays. The windows were super-fun and challenging as I had to both design and build the vision I had. So a huge thank you to the Brewery for trusting me just enough, and indulging me just a little to make it all happen!
By upcycling beer boxes and using rolled teeshirts as logs (around the cardboard box fire) we kept it simple, full of Alaskan Brewing colors, and fun.
We continued the logo motifs through the windows as well- like the tree in this window which was robbed from the Winter Ale logo.
So the whole window looks a little like this! OF course, Cap'n was the one who came up with the fun phrase that runs across the top. The hardest part about this window bank was the wave. Check out the detail.
There are two more windows that, it turns out, were difficult to photograph. Anyone have ideas on how to photograph windows, because I am at a loss!! Hope anyone in town that hasn't yet had the time to check it out takes five minutes to do so- and then you can see the canoe and remember, yes, that was in my living room for waaay too long!
