When the Portland Museum of Art Store approached Might & Main to design a line of products centered around their upcoming Winslow Homer exhibit, it was an opportunity to be involved in communicating Maine's part in art history and to help to put the Museum on the national map.
At Might & Main, we're not just a bunch of design geeks. In fact, we boast an NCAA Division II Final Four combo-guard(Morgan) and Maine Recreational League 5th grade champion (Graeme) amongst our ranks. It was no surprise then, when a simple debate about the new Brooklyn Nets identity turned into a hardwood classic about trends, mass markets, and the commitment to do good work.
Good design almost always comes from good communication. Sometimes a client knows exactly what they need and our job is to execute. Other times someone brings us an idea, and we flesh it out for them. Last week, I asked Morgan, one of our incredibly talented designers here at Might & Main, to do both - with an emphasis on flesh.
Eventide Oyster Co. is the newest arrival to the Portland restaurant scene and is unique in presenting a “revival of the great American oyster bar ... pristine shellfish and a fresh take on classic New England fare” as well as experimental cocktails and spirits infusions. Might & Main was extremely honored to have been selected to help Eventide with strategy, branding and design; a very satisfying process led to a result we feel proud to have had a hand in.
Last night, we were honored to be included in a special sneak-peek party at Eventide Oyster Co.. The Eventide / Hugo's staff was joined by friends, family, and a seeming who's who of the Portland food scene. It was great to see the restaurant community supporting the guys in their new venture, to catch up with so many friendly faces and to make some new connections.
When local mobile development company, Mowbi, approached our long-time friend and client at Maine Wedding Company with an idea to adapt their proprietary postcard app to incorporate a Maine wedding theme, MWC turned to us for help with strategy, content, and of course, design.

The new HoneyMaker Mead website focuses visitors on the high quality, local ingredients used in each batch of mead. Realizing a large segment of the market remains unaware of what mead is, we spent a considerable amount of time developing a way to illustrate to visitors just what mead is and then, through explanation of each flavor, which flavors they might enjoy most.
You've just discovered the Might & Main Traveling Brandsmithery Picture Show, and if you peered inside, you would have been treated to a cascade of images displaying our branding and design skills in action.
