Davos Crest

Davos, Switzerland, is a famous Alpine resort town now better known globally for being the site of the annual World Economic Forum than for its ski slopes and chalet.  The WEF takes place this week, from January 26-30. In reading recent news about the event and town of Davos itself, we recently stumbled upon the official “wappen” crest, which we find striking in it’s utter simplicity and, frankly, its dullness. And , yet, it has a refreshing look.

Diddy Sucks / You Would

Multiple stencils of hip-hop supa-dupa-star producer and rapper Kanye West on the protective wood lamp post hoarding in Nolita, in downtown New York City. “Diddy Sucks” (a reference to music mogul P. Diddy, a.k.a. Puff Daddy, a.k.a. Sean Combs) and “You Would” are written next the image of Kanye. Too funny. The stencil looks great.
