Typespotting: A Street Art Proposal

Typespotting: A Street Art Proposal

The two main men in my life were fawning over that awesome Bar 107 photo booth proposal from last year, not so much because it was at one of their favorite downtown bars, but more so because it ended up on two of their favorite websites. This one is just as awesome in my opinion....

I just got back from the opening night of TypeCon, a conference on yes, type, which is taking place here in L.A. this year. It featured an hour-long documentary on a man who made and cut letters for a living, from sketching them out on paper to carving them in miniature form on metal blocks,...

By now I can pretty much recognize downtown landmarks within half a second of spotting them in all the commercials that get shot here. Like this one from Lexus that caught my eye on one of the many big screens at ESPN Zone when we were there for my brother’s birthday. (0:16 mark) This time...

Type Spotting: Ride to Live

I always find the coolest street art around downtown. I took visual note of this one in particular – the type work is minimal but eye-catching. Can’t seem to find any information on it though. Anyone know anything about it?
