Ed and Michelle Bullock, owners of The Little Bull Native American Trading Post and Art Gallery in York Beach, Maine, approached me to talk about their brand and marketing approach. In a brainstorming session, we decided to create a group of posters that would highlight their Open House in the Spring, a Gallery Event in June, and a more general poster that could be used throughout the season. It was fantastic collaborating with Ed and Michelle and learning their aesthetic. They didn't want to reinvent the wheel, but just polish. I wanted to capture the essence of their store, and what really inspired me was reading about Ed's dad and his influences and legacy, the heart mind and soul of "The Little Bull."
“If you have ever placed an ad and don’t know the “Life Coach” of the design world, Kirk Simpson, change that now. He helped us in ways that we didn’t even know we needed. His clarity, insight, attention to detail and timeliness brought together a campaign that changed our own public perception of our business of 32 years. Just like we all want to be the person that our dog thinks we are, Kirk makes that happen for your business and its customers.” – Ed Bullock, The Little Bull, York Beach, Maine
