If you’ve been down 2nd Avenue North lately, you may have noticed some yellows signs with a large 2 on them. The signs are the product of a community-driven branding project started several years ago that also includes the yellow bike racks and bench planters on 2nd Ave N. Special thanks to the following who made this project possible: Jeremy Erdreich of Erdreich Architecture PC for convening the original stakeholder group and conceiving of the project; Chatham Hellmers of Charm for raising the money to purchase the signs; Shannon Harris of BIG Communications for the awesome design; Mayor William A Bell, Sr., for his support of the project; Council President Johnathan Austin for funding the sign frames; and the City of Birmingham Sign Shop for the installation.
Six additional signs are scheduled to be installed between 25th Street North and Richard Arrington Jr. Blvd. The street is looking brighter and is more recognizable to visitors thanks to the work of everyone who pitched in!
To say that Domestique Coffee’s Michael Pocus knows a thing or two about a good cup of coffee is an understatement.
Hide & Hunter along with Great Bear Wax Co. hope to create a great smelling oasis amidst the hustle and bustle in their retail space on the corner of 2nd Avenue and 19th Street North.
