My fellow Tacomanians, Kinsmen, Comrades! Our local small businesses are suffering... or rather YOU, citizen, are suffering at the hands of these beloved businesses who through no fault of their own (for they know not what they do) every-time you have a personal encounter one of their existing, unpleasant corporate persona(s).

**WARNING: Click at your own risk, from a design sense, moving through these examples listed below is like riding a mechanical bull wearing boxer briefs made from throttling belt sanders.***
  1. Tacoma Screw
  2. TAGRO family of products
  3. Lincoln Hardware
  4. Learning Sprout Toys
  5. Gibson's Frozen Yogurt

SAVE, GROW THE BUSINESSES with CARTOON PERSONIFICATION !   The ONLY historically proven, low-cost way to humanize your abstract legal entity.  Sure you can get a logo and maybe a website that matches your logo... but you can do something the big box stores would never do--CHARM THE HELL OUT OF YOUR CUSTOMERS!

BUT WAIT THAT'S NOT ALL...


Maybe you'd like to profit from an existing Tacomicâ„¢ Cartoon character?  Take your pick!  From Darryl the G.H.E.Y. Owl to Mike Lonergan  our characters are available for paid product placement advertisement.  Operators are standing by (253) 778-6786

Haha, nice work! I'm a huge fan of the active cultures. "It's like eating a ravenous rat... whole!"

You should do retro homage logo imaginings of the local small businesses that were gentrified off Pacific Ave. in the 1990's so Starbucks could move in without dirty people around.
