There's something about contributing to the beauty of your own community. But beauty has said to be "in the eye of the beholder"...
Without getting too philosophical... when we (people) have a sense of place, a sense of belonging, a reference point, then we seem to be able to understand and relate to that thing (an image, a topic, a space).
That's what the goal was for Downriggers a local Port Angeles restaurant, situated right on the waterfront. As a designer, my job is to figure out how to reach that goal, and how to translate that to a space.
I think we nailed it today as we installed a mural of an ariel image of Port Angeles at the entrance of the restaurant. You'll instantly relate to it as you look for where you are on the mural and discover the arrow that states "you are here"!
Special thanks to Pam Russell of Russellworks graphic design and photography, for the aerial shot and the graphic design of this mural.
Special thanks to Kristen and Marilyn for ALL your help and for staying up ALL night to work on this.
