“The product line originated from the Winslow Homer exhibit at the Portland Museum of Art,” said project manager Graeme Kennedy. “We created logos and marks, which could be used across several platforms, that ranged from renderings of his signature and handwriting, to a nineteenth-century inspired insignia. Then we moved into product design, with an eye toward creating high-end items that are outside the realm of most museum stores. These included handmade pillows, paintbrush rolls, map cases, custom soaps and broadsides and we reinterpreted traditional museum store goods by putting a hearty Maine touch on them—camp mugs, weathered T-shirts—and even designed a Winslow Homer bobblehead. Throughout we collaborated with some of the finest craftspeople in Maine, resulting in a robust range of goods that left a lasting impression on visitros to the museum.”
