Ssalefish GSO First Look #132 for 10.16.19
I never really talked about the new store logo when switched it on Facebook and Instagram back in September. Basically, as much as I love the Ben Towle image and even though I think it completely captures the spirit of the business, we needed something simpler for things like decals (coming as soon as I pick up some blue vinyl and FREE with any purchase of $25 or more) and doormats (also coming soon) that could also work in a square or circle, since that’s how most social media images are formatted.
Chris Giarrusso advised me on it (he still likes it better without the top fin) and it took some trial & error to “paint” the rope, but overall I’m pretty pleased and you’ll be able to slap in on cars, storfolios, comic boxes, water bottles, and whatever else you want real soon!
