Hello! My name is Miranda and I'm Blue Door's graphic designer. I started working with Blue Door right from the beginning, designing their logo and all their marketing materials. Blue Door is my favorite kind of client. They have a strong vision of what kind of experience they want to provide to their guests, and my job was to translate that into their visual identity. I think we did pretty well!
I have spent a lot of time with Roger and Cecelia at Blue Door, and they have proven themselves to be wonderful hosts. Something is always baking in the oven, tea is on the stove and there is always plenty of relaxed conversation.
The other great thing about Blue Door is the location. I live in Upper Fells Point with my husband and children just a few blocks south of Blue Door, so it's no surprise that I love this area. One of my family's favorite pastimes is taking beautiful, scenic walks along the Waterfront Promenade. My daughter, Fiona, loves feeding the ducks along the way, and my stepson, Elijah, is thrilled to have an opportunity to ride his bike.
We usually start out on Thames Street in Fells Point with a coffee at the Daily Grind. If we're in the mood for shopping, the kids love to hit aMuse Toys and I can always find something fun and unique at Trixie's Palace.
Next, we walk along the Waterfront Promenade to the vibrant Harbor East area, where we grab a quick lunch at Taco Fiesta, or if we're looking for a more upscale experience, The Oceanaire or Roy's. If we're without the kids we may even catch a movie at Landmark Theater (quite the luxury as parents of young children!).
We often walk just a few more minutes to the Inner Harbor and depending on the day, it's fun (and free!) to watch live street performers at the HarborPlace Amphitheater and check out the historic ships. In the summer, Barnes & Noble provides a perfect break from the heat.
The kids especially love it when we decide to end the day with a relaxing trip home on the Water Taxi from the Inner Harbor to our stop in Fells Point!
