The White Elephant on James Street North in Hamilton“believes in sustainability and promoting good design. We enjoy giving our found treasures a second life, and also enjoy providing our city with handcrafted wares.” [website] I like how they designed their logo to match the old glazed tiles on the front of the building.

Participating in signs, signs

  9. The logo cleverly matched the tiles in the background! The blue-white combo plus the cute elephant “cut-out” is very easy and appealing to the eyes.

  11. I really do like the design ^_^ Thanks for the visit!
