Browns

Our favorite shades of brown can be found in a fresh cup of espresso, like the one seen here. We drank this after an Italian-style lunch at Epistrophy cafe in Nolita, in downtown New York City.

Katakana Twins

Beautiful graphic street art on Spring St. in Nolita in downtown New York City. At first glance, the woman in the image reminds us a little of Kate Moss. Her eyes are hidden by blocks of Japanese katakana script, which is intriging but makes us wonder if the writing it has any actual meaning for the artwork or is merely a decorative conceit.

Baby’s Badass Burgers

We had a hamburger lunch from Baby’s Badass Burger’s earlier this week. This meal was yet further exploration of Los Angeles’ intense and myriad food-truck culture. BBB was featured in an episode of the hit HBO series Entourage and has developed a sexy-sassy brand. Check out their logo treatment below.

Viet Noodle Bar

Minimalist logo design on the door to the super-yummy Viet Noodle Bar in Atwater Village, in Los Angeles. By contrast, across the street is a Subway sandwich shop — you can see the the logo in the window reflection.

Bella Luna

The “Bella Luna” installation by artist Anne Herlihy at the recent Glow all-night art event at Santa Monica Beach, in Los Angeles. The artwork was interactive and involved viewers taking turns singing a song karaoke-style in a small tent. The real-time video image of the person was projected on a large balloon made to look like the moon. Full of awesome.

Pele

Wheat-paste poster of Brazilian soccer (football) legend Pele on Crosby Street in downtown New York City. This is one of two blown-up black-and-white photo paste-up of players at this spot in SoHo.
