It’s a sign :)

Saturday was a pretty exciting day for us. The new sign was installed out front of the office! I remember when I designed the Octopus Red logo years ago and thinking how awsome it would look on a store front. It’s a pretty amazing thing when the results surpasses the expectations ๐Ÿ™‚

We have a few more things to nail down before the faรงade is complete… including a large metal octopus tentactle that will start above the door and end with a light at the end over top of the sign… I can’t tell you how excited I am ๐Ÿ™‚

From the Vaults :)

What started as a quick search for an old typeface turned into a Sunday morning walk down memory lane of old design work ๐Ÿ™‚

I came across a DVD Trapsheet and Disc Face we designed for Academy Award Winning Screenwriter Paul Haggis (“Million Dollar Baby”, “Crash”) back in 2006. How time fliesย ๐Ÿ™‚

Almost there…

It’s been a long road but we’re almost there. Since opening Octopus Red in late 2009 our goal has always been to open a small office in downtown Brantford. We started at the Brantford Train Station, moved to Woodland Cultural Centre, then Serenity Candles and later Grace Anglican Church.

In 2012 we opened Sophia’s Bakery & Cafรฉ on the corner of King & Colborne across from the future home of the Laurier / YMCA. The bakery came equipped with a large back room off the King Street entrance and today we took and exciting step forward… we painted the exterior ๐Ÿ™‚ next stop window frosting, painted red door and brand new sign. So close and so exciting ๐Ÿ™‚
