NYC Brickads 2007

Oli just got back from New York where he said that there are ghost signs everywhere. However, in addition to the old signs, they are still producing modern brickads over there.  This one is for Jodie Foster’s new film which has just been released in the UK. You can see, towards the bottom of the picture, the gantry ready for the guys to finish of the piece. It’s huge, at least 14 stories!

However, of the images Oli took, this one below is my favourite. It looks like its for a bar or club and the design, typefaces and execution are brilliant. Check out the arrow in the bottom right corner emerging from the swirls and directing punters to the misbehaviour…

Thanks Oli for sending these through, I must go over to NYC to see their signs soon.
