Take your Southie Pride
and hang it on a wall
As we here at Caught in Southie are well aware of, when one moves away from South Boston, it has a way of staying with you. One former Southie girl, Malena Luongo from East Third Street, moved to the greener pastures of the L.A., but Southie was always in her heart. Her love of her hometown inspired her to create an original print to represent her favorite childhood places.
"I wanted to stay connected to my roots in Southie so I created a poster to hang in my apartment. When I posted the picture on Facebook, everyone loved it, so I opened and Etsy shop and put them up for sale." And we're glad she did!
This poster would make the perfect gift for Southie residents past and present. We love it!

Malena graphic designer who found her aesthetic voice at the New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University and early on, developed her skills at South Boston-based Blackcoffee Design. In September she plans to resign from her position as Art Director at the Milken Family Foundation to explore new opportunities as the owner of Malena Marie Design. We wish her the best of luck!
