Jill Taplin, Owner of Outsider Comics & Geek Boutique, contacted FL+D to make an iconic sign for the facade of her new offbeat comic book shop and geek meet up space. Needless to say we jumped at the opportunity to make another piece for the Fremont neighborhood.
Working with her existing graphics and graphic designer, we began translating her vision to a concrete product. This process started with assessing the existing building and what was feasible as well as best suited for the environment.

Not only was this project a blast to work on but it also gave us the opportunity to collaborate with James Taylor of Ballard Reuse on a sign that will provide meaningful and lasting value to a great Seattle small business. To learn more about Ballard Reuse visit: http://ballardreuse.com/
Check out the sign and their shop in person the next time you’re in Fremont. They host events ranging from fashion shows to board game nights as well as support a bunch of great artists and creators. To learn more about Outside Comics & Geek Boutique visit: http://www.outsidercomics.com/
