REMO Head Notebook

  • $18.00

This is the REMO head logo.

It was designed to represent US as well as representing YOU.

It was adopted to remind us that we all need and desire certain things in life: quality foods, clothing, stationery, homewares, skincare, jewellery, other personal items and unique gifts. We also need to be informed, amused, entertained and loved.

The head device used to drive everything we did in our quest to serve and delight CustOMERs.

And what of its design origin?

In 1989 New York-based designer Douglas Riccardi (then working at the M&Co. Design Group) developed a T shirt design for us based on a Polaroid of the profile of me … taken during one of my many pilgrimages to the M&Co. offices in Manhattan to meet with Tibor Kalman.

Douglas Shoots Remo's Profile

The original phrenology-head-inspired T Shirt design was silk screened in black with the Seven Deadly Sins printed on one side and the Seven Heavenly Virtues printed on the other.

That original design available on all manner of REMO merchandise HERE.

Then in 1991 we had the idea to replace the sins and virtues with these new REMO departmental words to create an enduring symbol for our General Store. In 1999 we added a blue REMO ribbon that also conveniently served to conceal a severed neck.
