Annie Mo’s moved to their new premises at Great Western Road, Glasgow in 2012. Based on our design work for long standing client Olympian Furniture we were asked to design signage for the shop fascia. Annie Mo’s are an independent furniture shop that has no interest in fleeting fancies or soon-to-be-forgotten fads. Using their existing brand we developed tasteful designs to reflect their ethos.
