Duluth Graphic Designer Recommendations

We are seeking recommendations and referrals for an individual or small design shop to create a logo and branding for a new business. The logo and branding will be utilized long-term, far and wide, here and there, on many objects, throughout expansion … you get the idea.

We hope to engage a smaller shop or a talented individual in the spirit of collaboration that is intrinsic to our business philosophy. Exciting things are happening, and we hope to find someone with an artistic and entrepreneurial vision that matches are own.

If you have a recommendation, please comment here.

If you are a designer or business, please PM us through facebook.com/borealkitchen or email borealkitchen (at) gmail (dot) com.

Lamp (switch) repair in Duluth?

We have an out-of-warranty IKEA arc lamp whose remote (on the cord between the lamp and plug) switch has gone bad. Where the heck in Duluth does a person go to get a new dimmer switch installed on a fairly new arc lamp?

(I have found PDD to be a very useful space for service recommendations. Let the tradition continue.)
 

So long, Duluth.

Well, we’re outta here.

A job opportunity is taking us to (much) warmer climes. We moved to Duluth in 2005, got engaged on the beach at 22nd, were married at the Beach House (while Beach House played in the background), and gave birth to a daughter who’s eyes are the color of Lake Superior. I’m glad she’ll be able to say she’s a native Duluthian.

Some things I’ll miss:

  • Snow
  • Crisp fall mornings
  • The greening of the landscape in May/June
  • The view from our front deck
  • The fog horn
  • That lake

We will miss our friends the most. And the delicious beer.

Frozen Superior

Will the Corner of the Lake freeze this year?

Anybody have photos or video of when it froze, solid and smooth, in 2007? Mine are long lost.
