Shadow Box of a Special Moment
When we think of custom framing and a custom framed shadow box, we often think of a large complicated project with lots of three dimensional objects to mount and display. This is a project where we wanted to show off a special moment to the young man in the photo.
We had a photo of the gentleman and it did tell a story. Clearly he had caught a fish off the beach and the family wanted it framed to remind him and them of this moment. I asked, “Tell me more about this photo and why is it important?”. Listening to our clients and guest maybe one of the most important steps Jeff and I take to completing a great design vs something average. They explained that their son had caught this fish on a certain lure in the surf and it was his first using said technique. I immediately knew the project would be more complete, more special by including this lure in the design. We kept the elements… three mats and simple cherry frame… but now instead of a photo we had a small shadow box show casing the fish and the exact lure the fish was caught on. This gentleman 50 years from now will be able to tell his grandkids of a special moment cause the family and our show, The State College Framing Co & Gallery, took the time to custom frame and custom shadow box that special moment.
Congrats on the special catch!
