I stopped to put gas on the west side of Austin and noticed a mobile Mexican food vendor advertising “brefask” tacos. Based on my experience, if the Mexican food vendor has at least ONE menu item misspelled, the food is authentic. Here’s hoping!
I took the “muts” to the local Austin library and we rented the vintage cartoon AstroBoy. Each still seemed timeless to me, even 60 years later. The condensed font in the eyes, dark and bold helped capture the mood of the series.
I did a double-take at this sign in the backroads of Three Rivers, TX. Appears that dilapidation and weathering had the last say on this “parking” sign.
I took a snapshot of a die-cut label with a fresh color scheme and lovely typography. Enjoy!
Here are some logo designs I did for a governance compliance company. I posted on my facebook. The discussion from the designer’s is amusing. We shall see which one the client selects.
Clean new san serif font “Ideal Grotesque” offers open typographic statement.
Sadly, I prefer to take my kids to Dave and Buster’s for game time because they do serve beer. As we waited for our order, I noticed the redesign of their menu. The bold helvetica type nestled tightly within the vector forms works neatly and harmoniously.

I took a snapshot of a commercial that was advocating an end to world hunger. Here, the designer used white space to depict two children’s faces within the space of an apple. Simple and effective.
While shopping at a local HEB, and exploring down the “Hispanic” foods isle, I found a bag of “cinnamon sticks” with the following label.
