Oklahoma Gift Shop is located in the vibrant Northern Quarter district of Manchester, United Kingdom.
For the past 23 years it has been a staple for eclectic homewares, colourful gifts and hard-to-come-by oddities by the best independent makers and brands from around the world.
The 'Oklahoma tote bag' is a popular shoulder accessory throughout Manchester, the UK and across the globe. Redesigning the face of the bag for the fourth time in Oklahoma history was part of a company-wide rebrand. Featuring a new logo and design style redeveloped from past branding ventures, the mission of the design was to capture the eye of Oklahoma's colourful market of customers - both in Manchester and worldwide - with an abstract new look.

Inspired by line work of the 1980's 'Memphis Group' design movement, elements of Manchester's influential cultural history were subtly set amongst literal representations of the brand's offerings and shopfront.
