Fiat Cafe

The Fiat Cafe in Nolita, in downtown New York City, is a tiny Italian-style restaurant with the classic Fiat car as its interior and graphic design theme. Below are pix of its menu cover and interior. The food is here is pretty f*cking good, too.



The Red and the Yellow

Caught this bright yellow NYC taxi driving by this bright red graffiti’d truck next to the Apple Store in the Meatpacking District of New York City and the juxtaposition of colors and the street aesthetic struck us as kind of cool.



Saturdays Surf NYC

The wonderful display window at Saturdays Surf NYC, the Crosby Street surf shop and cafe in SoHo in downtown New York City. Beyond the couple in the foreground, there’s an awesome selection of long boards and short boards. We love this place. LOVE it.

Tico Boat

We found this small overturned fishing skiff (dubbed “Caguama”) on the main beach at Playa Tamarindo in Costa Rica, where Global Graphica was recently on a surfing expedition. We like the the simple, striking design with the colors of the Costa Rican flag painted near the front.



There’s little street art or even graffiti in Costa Rica’s beach towns, but here’s an uplifting graff by “Gussa” we found in Tamarindo, the popular Pacific coast surfing town.
