Brattleboro Food Co-op Focus on: The Graphics Department PDF Print E-mail

 by Sabine Rhyne
October 2012

 The BFC Graphics Department has been busy, busy, busy. Marlene O'Connor and Sarah Adam split the duties in a fantastically collaborative way (as in the top cartoon: pencils by Sarah, inks and tones by Marlene) in order to address the wide variety of needs that the Co-op has. This year, these two talented artists have contributed to a logo update (see the logo progression above), part of a re-branding process in the store, as well as all of the myriad daily signs, posters, social media, and newsletter requirements. The planning for the new store included designing all of the interior signs hanging from the ceiling, the exterior store sign, and so much more.

Sarah Adam is a local artist and illustrator with both commercial ad experience and fine art exhibition. She was just featured in Latchis 4 Gallery, and has also published many whimsical works, such as the ABC Picnic Coloring and Activity Book, valentine cards, and more. She authored the scampering onion on our BFC moving T-shirt!
Marlene O'Connor also has experience in the commercial art and illustration world, both in-house and as a freelancer, and has a large portfolio of fine art and drawings. She too has exhibited in the area, and like Sarah, has been published in the local quarterly graphic anthology Trees and Hills. She is currently working on a Blues series.
The Co-op is fortunate to have these two graphic artists on staff. They've been able to tackle all of the occasionally mundane tasks of graphic arts in a grocery store while expanding our artistic possibilities whenever possible.

Go Co-op Graphics!
