My studio is located in West Seattle, specifically in “The Junction”. It really is the Heart of West Seattle, I love being part of the neighborhood. There's great shopping and lots of good places to eat, it's very lively these day. I can walk out my door, cross the street and find great desserts at “Coffee to a Tea with Sugar”, yummy sandwiches at Capers and Husky Deli, hmmm where should I get lunch today? Easystreet Records has great coffee (and breakfast — hi Lydia), and funky-graphic-overload decor, amazingly the CD I want is always on sale, YES! There's too many great small businesses to list, you get the idea.
Recently I had the opportunity to create a Spring direct mail promotion for the Junction Association. It was their first big mailing, it promoted the start of the popular West Seattle Farmers Market and Spring sales and events coordinated by merchants. The back of the postcard had 20 coupons from Junction establishments. They let me go loose with a fun and colorful illustration, you certainly couldn’t miss it in the stack of mail. I think it brought the Junction’s visibility up a notch — with style!
