826 Marquette aka 826FISHMQT

826 National is the largest nonprofit youth writing organization in the country. 826 creates storefronts that reimagine tutoring through imagination - exploring identity, advocation, and community. With an operating storefront, chapters raise funds to support the tutoring center, selling themed goods that represent the city’s definitive essence in unique ways. My task was to brand a new 826 location, in Marquette, Michigan. It’s the largest city in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan; a historic and eclectic city, with a visible essence of duality.

826 Marquette/Findler’s Fish Emporium is a haven for fish, fish lovers, and fishermen alike.

The 826 tutoring center teaches kids to be curious, and try new things, while spending time outdoors. It’s a junky, cluttered space with fishing-junk-jewelry, bumper stickers, punch cards, fish snacks, & weird tonics. The space changes frequently, encouraging exploration, craft, and a DIY attitude.
