From SeattlePI.com - "The pins have been installed on the buildings of B&O Espresso on Capitol Hill, Mama's Mexican Kitchen in Belltown, OKOK Gallery in Ballard, and Ballard Sip & Ship. Each of the businesses has a sign in the window pointing to the promotional site thepushpinproject.com. "It's another entry point for consumers to get introduced to our product," said Justin Osmer, a Microsoft senior product manager."
See the site and view the collection at thepushpinproject.com.
From ThePushpinProject.com - "We started the Pushpin Project because we're fans of the underground. The dive. The one-of-a-kind Seattle."
