Check out the city’s latest ‘Shop Local’ design created by Tyler Tremble. Last school year, the Development Authority of Powder Springs initiated a shop local redesign contest with McEachern High School’s graphic design class. Nineteen students submitted artwork and Tyler’s design was voted the favorite to support local businesses in Powder Springs. The voting committee included members of the City Council, Development Authority of Powder Springs, Downtown Development Authority, Arts and Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission, South Cobb Arts Alliance, Powder Springs Business Group and city staff.
Tyler has since graduated, so his parents Tarsha and Tony Tremble (pictured left) attended the August 16th City Council meeting on his behalf to be recognized for his design. The family received an enlarged poster of the design to commemorate the achievement.
Next time you visit a Powder Springs business you may see the design in a store window. Sweet Southern Coffee and Desserts (pictured above) is one of the first to display the design in their window. Business owners can pick up a free sticker at the Community Development offices to showcase their Powder Springs pride and encourage everyone to support the local economy!
The design is also a feature on the business directory page where visitors can find information on all the city’s businesses.
