In order to keep up with their rapid growth over the past few years, Rising Tide Brewery decided to begin packaging their core beers in 12 oz bottles for the first time, and came to Might & Main for a the design. In addition to the 12 oz bottles, we designed 4-pack carriers, reworked their logo and brand elements, and designed and developed a new website.
In late February, Might & Main welcomed a new print and interactive designer, Regis Biron, to our team. Regis, a 2009 graduate of Maine College of Art, comes to us by way of CIEE, where he worked as a web designer for nearly four years.
When no one can decide where to go for lunch, we ultimately make a decision based on where we can get our hands on a delicious chocolate chip cookie. So the question was asked: who's got the best chocolate chip cookie near our office? In the spirit of competition, we hosted an 8-cookie bracket with pre-lim rankings, 3 rounds, single elimination, 7 judges.
UnderConsideration's Art of the Menu highlights great design in a medium often overlooked in the design community (though it shouldn't be). We've had the honor of seeing our work for Hugo's, Duckfat, and Eventide Oyster Co. on Art of the Menu, and were excited to see our branding and design for Central Provisions on AotM earlier this month.
Formerly known as The Wild Iris Inn, the house at 273 State Street has been a place for travelers for over 20 years. With special attention to Portland’s proud local ethos and an eye towards sustainable living, new owners Tim Karu and Jacob Krueger began a complete overhaul of the property in late 2013, reopening this winter as Mercury Inn.
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.
