Nancy Pochis Bank Art Studio was hired by Wixter Market, a new fish market in Wicker Park, to create two chalkboards as functional statement pieces for their storefront. The first board is a five-by-ten foot world map, surrounded by hand lettering. Studio artists illustrated each fish that Wixter sells next to its source on the map. The phrases around the outside of the map communicate Wixter Market’s commitment to sustainability and freshness.
The second board is a list of all the seafood the store offers, categorized by type. We framed this board in thick rope, in keeping with the market’s nautical theme. A big thanks to studio artist Shayne Taylor for her great illustrations on these boards.
