Seattle-based creative agency Creature is opening The Window Shop, a window you can actually shop from. Creature has a long tradition of using its street facing windows as art proj- ects and visual experiences, and for the holiday season, Creature is transforming their displays into a functioning boutique featuring “one-of-a-kind gifts to confuse your loved ones.” It’s open from Tuesday, Dec 4 until Thursday, Dec 20th. And when you give from The Window Shop there will be more than one grateful recipient. All proceeds go to Hamomi Children’s Centre.
Come browse Creature’s front windows at 1517 12th Avenue, Suite 101 – and purchase at the front desk, or shop through creaturewindowshop.com. The eclectic range of items is made of up over 100 gifts, which include things like a miniature presidents set, a rum bottle lamp, “Dirty Hankies,” and a paper maché dolphin with Elton John’s face. Many are hand-made by Creature employees. Learn more about this whole project on our blog.
Throughout the agency’s Capitol Hill neighborhood you may spot The Window Shop’s giant gift tags tied to telephone poles. Buy from the Shop and your merchandise comes in its own branded bags and boxes.
This entire effort is Creature’s way of giving back to a charity that they lend space to in their offices – Hamomi Children’s Centre. Hamomi provides comprehensive care to orphaned and vulnerable children in the slums of Nairobi. Through their primary school and scholarship pro- gram, they provide education to 144 students, along with medical care, meals and micro loans to help graduates start their own businesses.
