In 2002 or 2003 Labor of Love was commissioned to design a logo and menu for neighborhood minimart that was adding deli service to their offerings. They made a good variety of good sandwiches, their specialty being a philly cheesesteak that I thought was really excellent. They even offered a chicken version that I thought was even better. I prefer chicken over beef most days so I’m sure others would disagree. I did the base illustrations for the menu. Jason Oxrieder did his meticulous magic and turned them into vector art. This fat pasha is the only one that turned up in the zip disks I was cleaning off.
Saleh’s is still there but the deli service only last a year. I was never clear why they gave it up. Too expensive? Time consuming?
