If you’re anywhere near the West End of Glasgow today, you need to pop into Penny Black, the new Post Office, cafe and gift shop that opens today! I got a preview at the weekend and it looks amazing, and not just because of my branding designs. That signage cost us a lot of sleepless nights but it looks so good.
Also exciting – seeing a logo you designed on stacks of coffee cups!
It’s worth going just for the cheesecake, which we got to try. On the left is Tunnock’s teacake and the right is tablet, but there are loads of unbelievable flavours that could be there when you visit.
The gift shop side is equally awesome, with tons of cool cards and indie gifts. You may spot a few familiar characters!
Please do visit if you get the chance, not just because they’ve put in so much hard work, but also because if Penny Black is successful, maybe more Post Offices will think about doing something exciting in future, rather than shoving it in the back of a horrible barely-stocked Costcutter, like where I live. There’s a great feature on STV that’s worth a read and shows off more of the shop and stock.
