Ideaman developed a series of custom fridge magnets for Powell’s Books. Located in Portland, OR, Powell’s is the largest independent bookstore in the United States.
The first magnet has a retro aesthetic, featuring the sun design that can be found on other Powell’s Books souvenirs. According to the website, the design brings them back to summer camp in the ’70s, where they could “find a soft patch of grass under the sun, and read like crazy.”
The second magnet is of an illustration of an owl perched atop two books. Besides the easy rhyme, an owl is an appropriate choice since they are commonly associated with Athena, the Ancient Greek goddess of wisdom and courage.
The last magnet is a little outside-the-box. The magnet plays on tagline of Powell’s City of Books,”The Legendary Independent Bookstore”, and connects it with a design more typically seen with racehorses.
