The best part is you could actually win a t-shirt!

 

RememberME Portland is an online shop that pays homage to places and things that shaped Portland. It's from the mind of Victor Rios who grew up in Portland and still calls Portland home. He loves Portland and has fond memories of places and things that he associates with Portland that shaped who he is as an adult with a business in Portland. This project from Expose Design is truly a love letter to Portland. Victor put it perfectly,

These are more than designs. They are memories of some amazing places that shaped my life and shaped the Portland we know today. Everyone has a story to tell and all I can do is smile when I talk about these places with others.

I know you'll know this design. Can you remember the business that is no longer around?

New designs will be shown as a preview prior to the release date. This awesome t-shirt will be available for purchase starting in August. Hint: Victor Rios referred to this place as the 'Holy Grail' of toy stores in Maine. He remembers when Mario 3 came out. It was so awesome to grab a paper ticket and trade it in for a fresh new cartridge. If you know what this is, let us know below and one lucky winner will win this t-shirt when it's released!

Congratulations to Robin from Westbrook, Maine. She correctly knew that this is a play on the logo for Childworld in Portland. She wins a t-shirt with this cool logo!

Look for new designs previewed weekly. They will become collector's items. Part of the fun of RememberME is truly remembering. I think the pandemic made us long for nostalgia. Portland is great now, but the places that are no longer, where you may have spent some quality time, are truly fun to remember.
