It’s just like the AWS pop-up lounge…
…and the famous AWS pop-up house of yesteryear:
Here’s what you do, you take the Apple logo, complete with a bite out of the right side and then you combine it with, IDK, how about Mickey Mouse, and then you call your electronics store on Grant near Broadway Applesomething and BABY YOU’RE IN BUSINESS!
Let’s take a peek inside:
It’s sparse, baby:
(I don’t really have an iPhone. I don’t think I ever will. But if you want to make Yet Another Trip To The “Genius” “Bar,” it’s located the next street over, on Stockton.)
It had a backwards “C” on the front but not one on the back, the way it’s required to:
There is a tiny Lyft sticker on the back, but I don’t think that helps.
Here’s John King’s take on the new sculpture / logo at 1 California. You can see it on the right here. But what else can you see – a tacked-on “50” hanging from 50 California:
Practically, these signs make things easier for newcomers to find their way around the canyons of the Financh, ’cause these generic skyscrapers are really generic.
In another universe, 50 California could have used “FIFTY” instead, and 1 California would have used a giant “1” instead, and life would have carried on pretty much the same…
The anonymouser, the better:
This is on Battery in our MSM Ghetto, but I get all these channels all mixed up. These particular vans above are not from KGO, that’s all I know.
Sometimes there are clues as to whose doing the news inside, but generally not.
Now these are KGO vans.
Some local outfits do go for loud and garish, but they do so at their own risk.
As I tried to tell a newcomer Tech Bro just a few days ago, Things Are Different Here…
Well this is how things were shaping up way back last year, when the fun-loving North Bay Bros of Autodesk teamed up with East Bay radio personality
Sandy Beach, J Crew, Sam Francisco, Greek Aphrodite, oh, “Roman Mars” to redesign our official flag.
Now, at the time, the plan was to have a contest or something with a “San Francisco official” giving input, you know, for color of authority. But here in the West Bay, this scheme might not be all that popular, so I was wondering who was going to step up to climb up the flagpole / lightning rod, you know, for no good reason.
Well, nobody’s stepped up yet, just saying. So that means things are behind schedule, since all this was supposed to get going last year.
And when I say things, I mean, there’s no way that you could come up with one new flag design that would get voted in over the current version, so the effort is to first get people to agree to chuck the old flag and only then come up with the replacement. The auslanders have decided on a two-stage process for us.
And when I say voted in, I mean that the People Of SF would eventually be able to weigh in with big fat VETO stamp, in one fashion or another. (Remember when Our Designerly Community tried to wholesale change the official flag of Iraq? It didn’t go so hot. That’s something to consider, College Boy. And remember this recent attempt to change the UC logo? (I wonder if we ever got our money back for that one?))
And I mean that Mayor Ed Lee right now has never been more unpopular right? So, who’s going to step up to shepherd this New Flag plan?
I know not.
Anyway, let’s see if 2016 shakes out better for this misguided effort…
I’m not sure if this kind of thing was what the Founders of the Golden Gate Park PANHANDLE COMMUNITY BOARD had in mind:
Now let’s give this new bidness a name:
DnnrDog (Pronounced “dinner dog”)
And here’s your logo.
(My creative fee will be 2.5% of DinnrDog.)
