This is a mockup of the sign I designed for my friend, Joy Stein’s new enterprise in the heart of Springdale called Joy Craft & Design. Her shop features handcrafted, upcycled, and restyled objects and clothing. Stop by and see what surprising things zippers are and also find wonderfully colorful and whimsical fabric items by Big Heart! I wish her all the best in her new venture.
Just wanted to post this photograph I have of the old Mean Bean Coffeehouse sign. Although I designed this logo, I can’t take credit for the three-dimensional translation of this sign. Although the Mean Bean is long gone, I miss seeing this sign in the center of town. Here’s to great coffee, great friends, and the memory of a great place!
This is the newly revised edition of the original publication from 1988. Since the original book is now out of print and cannot be reprinted because the original files are on film, I was asked to start over with new files so took the opportunity to spruce it up a bit with an updated design.
The book was printed by Conquest Graphics in Salt Lake City, Utah this past January and is now in bookstores at Zion National Park. It’s a wonderful history of the idea and execution of the Zion-Mt. Carmel Switchbacks and the Zion Tunnel which were completed in 1930.
