Central Provisions Brand Design

As one of Portland’s oldest buildings, 414 Fore Street has seen it all. During the early 19th century, back when Wharf Street bordered the Atlantic, The East India Trading Company unloaded silk, indigo, and salt at its doors directly. It was one of the few downtown buildings that escaped The Great Fire of 1866, which took nearly half of Portland with it. Most recently, in early 2013, Chris and Paige Gould purchased the building and began an extensive renovation, transforming the historic building into Central Provisions, an incredible new restaurant.

Might & Main + Strong Arm Bindery + Portland Museum of Art

The creative community in Portland is one of the best. For the Winslow Homer product line, we got to work with some of the finest folks in town. Martha Kearsley, owner of Strong Arm Bindery, is one of them. We came to Martha months ago, with the idea of turning some of our favorite Homer quotes into broadsides. Popularized hundreds of years ago, broadsides were the most common form of printed page between the 16th and 19th century. One of the most compelling and memorable forms of print, we felt broadsides were the perfect format for some of Homer's quirky, insightful, and audacious quotes and musings. Tucked away in an 1846 locomotive foundry on Portland's east end, Strong Arm Bindery was the perfect place to inspire this project, as we rummaged through piles of wood type and worked with Martha to create some bold and stunning broadsides for Portland Museum of Art
