Not Just Another Nail Salon

A wonderful use of graffiti scrawl as signage and marketing on a roller shutter: “Not just another nail salon” references the small business behind the metal gate, which might be inferred is a nail salon, but is in fact an art gallery (and not just another nail salon). Clever.

Dope Summer Shirt

Snapped in the Meat Packing District of New York City, we saw this dude with a dope tee. We hate this fella’s overall style (it’s just not to our taste), but we love the orange tank top with the leaf graphics on the back. It would be a good after-surf shirt, worn nicely while cupping an icy tumbler filled with a caipirinha near the beach in, say, Leblon, Rio de Janeiro. We’ll take one of those, please.


Brooklyn Pastoral

From our City Life file … Pic of the beautiful, lush garden behind a couple of of old tenement apartment buildings in East Williamsburg, in Brooklyn, where friends of Global Graphica hosted a recent BBQ party. No graffiti or street art here in the garden, but in the front of the building  there’s a lot. It’s like two different worlds.


Backwards Milk Studios Van

A production van for the acclaimed Milk Studios on the border of the Meat Packing District and Chelsea in downtown New York City. In a clever design flourish, the Milk logotype has been rendered backwards on the side of the van.
