Follow the smells from the deli section of the Rabba Foods Store at Lakeshore and Elizabeth as they rise above street level curling lazily up the stairway of the Port Credit Business Centre located above. As you enter between the hours of nine to five your other senses will be captured by the buzzing and beeping of the various electronic devices, the babble of phone conversations, and the constant comings and goings of the dozen or so resident entrepreneurs and their eager patrons. A few hours later by mid evening the mood has softened considerably lights are dimmed and the plastic pecking of a single keyboard or the buzz of one half of a phone conversation punctuated by the odd burst of laughter echoes pointedly up and down the corridors bouncing off the locked doors of the now slumbering offices. It would however be a rare evening indeed when suite 203 would be in darkness at this time.
The reason for this is that for the last few years suite 203 has been the business address of Frank Bailey, a cartoonist, illustrator and graphic designer, and a man, rumored by some, to be surgically attached to his drawing board.
After 25 years employed as a commercial artist and studio manager Frank decided his passion for his profession could only be satisfied by the launching of his own company imaginatively called Frank Bailey Graphics.” Some of my friends thought I should have a more artsy, pretentious moniker like “Atomic Weasel designs’, “doodle mania”, Llamagraphix or something,” explains the artist, “but I insisted that my business is about me servicing my clients not an abstract concept that’s more style than substance and the straight forward simplicity of the name reflects that attitude”.
Frank now does full service graphics from creative concepts, cartoons and logos for an eclectic collection of large and small clients, in a variety of industries. The only things they have in common are that they all love his work; they always receive it on time and within their budget.
