The SWEET spot of Downtown JAX!

Recently I had the opportunity to celebrate AIGA Jacksonville‘s 25 Anniversary!! It was great seeing so many familiar faces… I have been on “hiatus” since I had my 2 year old. (I know new moms can relate to this). AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) is now offering  membership rates as low as $50/year. AIGA offers members a full profile online, discounts on events and competitions, access to content on aiga.org and so much more. It’s a great time to become a member if you’ve been thinking about it!

The event was hosted by Sweet Pete’s new location in downtown JAX. The new location’s decor is like a contemporary Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. There will also be a restaurant Candy Apple Cafe, offering a menu of sandwiches, soups, salads and a children’s menu. The cafe and dessert bar are scheduled to open December 15.

In addition to buying all types of candies, ice cream and apparel, they offer tours, parties (children and adults), field trips, and candy making classes. This is definitely on my radar as a location to have my little ones birthday party!

During the AIGA event, me and my friend ventured downstairs to take a look around!  We saw the space for the Candy Apple cafe, the area where they were making candy and the icing on the cake…. we met owner Peter Behringer in person! (As seen on The Profit). He was  nice enough to take a picture with us. (pictured below)

Invest in your brand

Road Sign Saying To Retirement 401k Invest Wisely

When choosing a graphic designer, don’t focus solely on the price, but rather the quality of their work and their experience. There will always be someone who can design it for less. But by focusing solely on price, you may be compromising the value of your company and setting yourself up to pay more in the long run. #investinyourbrand
