New Max Formal sign has Obama link

Max Formal sign

For 56 years since 1953, Max Formal Company has supplied linens and clothing on North Main Street.  Now, a new sign on the south wall of its building at 1164 North Main beckons new shoppers to the store.  But this is no ordinary sign.  It was designed by Obama campaign poster creator Shepard Fairey, whom owners Paul and Debbie Formal have known since he was a student at RISD.  In addition, Paul employed Miriam Jackson, a local artist, to hand-paint the sign on the wall.  Local art + local business = winning formula.
