Design: Liquor Stores

Living in Washington State where liquor stores are boring package affairs and seem to always be next door to a Safeway we don’t see this kind of signage much. Growing up in Flint, Michigan however was a different story. Liquor and Party stores on almost every corner to attract the Buick workers, all fighting for attention and sales. My favorite being the drive thru. Didn’t even have to leave your car to get a bag of chips and a pint of bourbon. The fancy signs (except for the awful Circus Liquor sign) are nice but something about the shop in Brooklyn (5th photo down) gives a certain sense of danger and excitement – something important when buying liquor.
