Hi there! I am blessed to have such a cool virtual design team. So far I have some great feedback about the logo and font. I feel some element of cheese setting in after talking to Sherrie. Sherri works at H & R Sales and she is bag collector. I don't mean collecting cute bags like should I say Coach or Dooney. I am talking Ferragamo. This woman knows her stuff. I agree when she says "What the hell does a panther have to do with SAM HARVEY!"
She wants to know who Sam Harvey is... I do have my Zaida's photo. This photo of Harvey was taken in the 40's and he does embody what this name stands for. Harvey, a Canadian, became a US citizen in 1946. Harvey, his wife Racille and their children Robert (my dad), Greg and Rita lived in the suburbish area known as Culver City, near the sprawling MGM Studios which fascinated the family on Sunday drives. Harvey’s first job was that of a meat cutter and he worked for King Cole markets, beginning a career as a butcher that would last six or so years until he began pioneering barbeque concessions in major supermarkets, specializing in chicken and ribs to take home. Harvey had a unique friendly manner and a knack for publicity which frequently resulted in his appearing in the papers.
Sam Harvey stands for vintage style with a modern edge, traveling to new places, hiking the Grand Canyon rim to rim in a day, playing the net in tennis, putting it all out there, following your dreams, going on a jeep trip for a year around the world and having style while you are doing it. That's what I am talking about.
