Business Signage

                               Fireweed Designs

I designed this sign for Leticia's Cafe, now the site of Kitcen Fare on Denman Island,  with elements from the Cafe's interior at the time. A number of years previously, artists Cathy Stoyko and Bronwyn Simons painted a gorgeous mural complete with grapevines over a rich faux earthen finish inside what was then the Denman Bakery Cafe. One portion of the mural included an archway window which I photographed, duplicated, and inverted to create the poster design, substituting text where another image would have been. I then cut out some grape leaves and painted in additional elements along with the business hours. The overall design was intended to translate nicely into the template for the Cafe's menu to come.
