A burger, a shawl, and a construction company walk into a bar. They end up on Friday Likes. (Man, I need to work on my Friday Like intros a little harder).
Established in 1903, the Seattle Symphony is now in its 109th season. With the arrival of a new music director, they have introduced a new logo, designed by local design firm PhinneyBischoff, that “[intends] to exemplify the Northwest’s past, present and future aptitude for innovation, and reflect an organization that advances music in new and inventive ways.” Press release here.
Founded in 1981 in Seattle, WA, Redhook is a craft beer brewery with a devoted following not just in the northwest of the U.S. but nationwide as passion for craft beers has grown over the last 30 years and as Redhook has increased its distribution reach. Its flagship beer is the ESB (Extra Special Bitter) but it counts with a few other year-round selections, like an IPA, as well as seasonal offerings. In March Redhook introduced a completely new bottle and packaging.
Established in 1899 in Seattle, WA, Woodland Park Zoo — previously the private park of Guy C. Phinney, a wealthy lumber mill owner and real estate developer — currently sits on 92 acres and features more than 1,090 individual animals representing nearly 300 species. The zoo is well known for advancing animal exhibits to be more naturalistic and closer to each animal’s habitats. This month Woodland Park Zoo, with the launch of a new capital campaign that aims to raise $80 million, introduced a new identity and theme — “More Wonder. More Wild.” — created by Phinney Bischoff Design House. I wonder if they got the job because they have the same name as the zoo’s original founder? (Kidding).
