A friend of mine came to me a couple days ago looking for a sign for their ice cream stand. He had designed their own logo a while back and had some colorful signs made but starting out they were on a tight budget. Now they were ready to step things up a notch. The ice cream stand is just down the street from us and is on an extremely busy road - especially in summer. They just had to stop the traffic driving by. With the right idea and a suitable budget I knew we could do it. Our first idea was along the lines of the Moose Mountain sign we had done five or six years ago. Our thought was we could create a double sided sign and hang it from a post.
The sign would undoubtably be cool but we decided we needed something a little more noticable and a bit more over the top. It had to stop traffic after all. How about an entire moose? And what it the moose had a backpack with a sign and a giant triple scoop icecream cone (complete with a cherry) perched on top? It would be big enough to pose beside and take pictures with it. My friend didn't need very long to decide this was just the ticket.
With ice cream season right around the corner we have to get busy real soon. Phoebe and I will undoubtably have to walk down the street for inspiration and an ice cream cone every once in a while I'm sure.
