Brick Lane market frequenters and local passersby would be hard-pressed to miss the florescent glow of Lik+Neon’s beckoning orange storefront; glowing even brighter, it seems in this mid winter grey. Not to be impressed by the outside alone, its “inners” are sure to maintain the appeal. Showcasing a wide selection of design from independent illustrators, printmakers & designers, I find myself walking out with some trinket or another on every visit I make. The interior also showcases an impressive milk carton lighting display designed by Gitta Gschwendter when the store was redone in 2010, along with kitty-cubbies for Lik+Neon’s four shop cats: Bobby, Browser, Oscar and Makita.
