nice little video about design, process & passion
Really lovely work from Donna Ruff. Hand cut New York Times newspaper front pages.
Apparently there’s a right and a wrong way to gentrify a neighborhood. On one side, a Rolls Royce Phantom (I think) seen on my way to work this morning which stands out like a sore thumb on East Cordova. To the left, the new Pidgin which recently opened across the street from Vancouver’s notorious Pigeon Park.
Scout Magazine just published a statement from the proprietors who have been coming under fire from some residents of the TDES. I think Pidgin’s efforts for community involvement are notable. Please check out this article for yourself.
With all of this ‘stink’ around the opening of a new restaurant just one block from the likes of L’abattoire, the Irish Heather, Six Acres, the Cork & Fin etc… the list is long, one has to wonder what
a renovation or development of Pigeon Park it’s self will look like.
BTW, Nice tile logo, Pidgin!
Nothing says design super-nerd like drinking your morning coffee while thumbing through the
1970 New York City Transit Authority Graphic Standards Manual, designed by the one and only
Massimo Vignelli. Maybe Helvetica isn’t so bad afterall. Unfortunately, this is a cumbersome and
very slow moving website. Otherwise, pretty cool!
I Have been developing and testing this one with the amazingly talented Sarah Reid for the past 35 days. In short, it’s a daily graphic interpretation of the New York Times Opinion Page headlines.
