A few more Trader Joe's signs

Here are a few more of my more recent projects at Trader Joe's...

Trader Joes Non-Organic Gallons Value Signs

This is what we affectionately call the "Dan cow" because on the cow's Hawaiian shirt he has a name tag with the name "Dan" on it (after one of our full timers).

Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal and 3 Berry Granola end cap chalkboard sign  

(This is the second chalkboard sign I've done since we've been open, so this one is very special to me :))

This is one of my co-workers holding the "Holmes" sign version 2.0 (the last one ended up falling apart, this one is made of wood instead of foam core). It's an adjustable paint roller handle with paint roller attached inside the box to stabilize the sign.

When we are scheduled as the "Holmes person" we basically walk around the store with this sign in search for people who need help with any questions about the products or just need help finding something. We frequently get asked if we have a question for them... as if we are the Riddler or something. I think it would be awesome if we wore a riddler costume with it and asked trivia questions whenever someone asked us if we had a question for them. :)

I really like my fun job!!!

The last 4 months..

Sorry for not keeping you all posted with what I've been up to for the last few months... I have been quite busy with my new job and taken a bit of a break from blog writing, sewing and bread baking. I'm hoping to pick up blog writing again, but the posts may be fewer and far between.

In September I got hired on as a sign artist for the new Trader Joes that opened up in Omaha, so I've been a little pre-occupied to say the least... This had been a very busy time to help open a store, especially with all the sign changes that happen over the holidays on top of the pressures of opening a new store from scratch!.. So to make this a fun post I'll just show you a few of the many, many signs I've been working on over the last few months...
