Nice. The Created in Birmingham blog is to open its very-own shop in the Bull Ring, Birmingham city-centre. Thursday 25th February 2010 (at 5pm) is when the shutters are due to roll up for the public.

I guess designing a shopfront is not unlike designing a good front page for a website? Could Birmingham use a Spring-cleaning “creative shopfronts” competition, looking at more than just using the window-dressing to do the creative heavy-lifting? Maybe such a competition could pair some of the city’s excellent web designers and typographers with small indie shops, to tweak their frontages?

An antique antique shop.
