PopShop poppin’ up!
I’ve been working with a group of friends to put together a monthly pop-up shop filled with crafty objets d’art , fashion, accessories, home decor, and vintage clothing by a hand-picked selection of local sellers. Set to open at 1301 Main Street on March 25th, we’ll be right in the heart of all the Final Friday action!
We wanted a fun, vibrant name, and settled on PopShop as a take on the pop-up concept, and for its teasingly familiar resemblance to the name of a popular high street store. Of course (OF COURSE), I volunteered to develop the logo.
The most obvious idea was to do a riff on the Topshop logo, and I came up with a few other type-focused options before we had a brainstorming session and decided we wanted something that included boxes, emphasizing the pack-and-go nature of the pop-up shop.
What can we do with various found materials? You’ll see…
We started getting extra creative with the “boxes” theme, and now we’ve planned a whole decor concept around cardboard and packing tape and other recycled materials! We’re inspired by the window displays at Anthropologie–creative design using uncommon elements.
