Richard Arthur Stewart: Fast Eddie’s Barber Shop

The aim of the identity for Fast Eddie’s Barber Shop, designed by Richard Arthur Stewart, was to evoke traditional Americana, a style that the Boston-based shop epitomizes.

  13. John says:

    Great idea basing a logo off the old Nazi Party eagle… oh hang on no it's a terrible idea.
  14. Jason says:

    John, Why don't you leave us a URL so we can see the kind of work you do? If you're going to bad mouth someone, you better back it up with some quality work. By the way, since when did the Nazis get exclusive rights to the eagle?
  15. Courtney says:

    This seems to be getting a little out of hand. I love a good discussion, but let's be nice people! The eagle isn't only a graphic used in the Nazi era, it is also a traditional American symbol. And being that this is a U.S. based business‚ that cited "Americana" as an influence, no less—I highly doubt the former was the designer's inspiration.
