In the mad rush to open the second pot shop in Seattle, they did not want to go the “obvious route” like so many other shops. It was important for Ian Eisenberg, the owner of Uncle Ike’s and a Central District resident, to stay true to the neighborhood.
Ian and his designer, Kevin Berger at Graphiti Associates, wanted to create an iconic sign that would serve as a neighborhood landmark. According to Ian, the sign has done just that:
“Over 99% of the neighborhood loves the sign. We have really gotten the sense that the community wanted a visual que like this.”
After conferring with our design team, everyone agreed that creating a set of retro channel letters would set the right tone. The idea was to create a cool old school Seattle vibe that referenced classic Seattle sign’s; like Ivar’s Seafood Restaurant and Dick’s Drive-in.
