The Ace Hotels have design down to a T. I love their use of old signage letters in their Palm Springs and New York hotels.

Artist Anna Garforth created this installation with masking tape on a fence in Spain. Me gusta.

Good art direction in restaurants makes the food taste better. The advertising on the brick wall in Atlanta’s Cakes & Ale bakery was unearthed and restored in a renovation. And The Arrogant Butcher mural in Phoenix went up in 23 hours. In a row.

Grit Gym Mural

This tape installation by Stephen Doyle in a Manhattan KIPP middle school is a great reminder of what it takes to win.

Bike Art Installation

And, finally, this mural in a Hamburg coffee shop would cheer my mornings up almost as much as my latte.

Any of this fancy type strike your fancy?
