Adiós LA

When designer Jon Jackson accepted a job that would take him from Los Angeles to New York, he wanted to leave with a bang. And what better way to send a big message than via billboard? So he designed and produced a series of large scale, visual farewells the city he’s called home for years—a pretty amazing idea, if you ask me. Check out Adios LA to get a closer look at each of the five typographic billboard designs and learn more about the project.

    These are hilarious. Maybe he could do some welcome to NY signs for himself too.

    OMG, this might be my favorite self-directed design project of the year. He should take a similar opportunity to introduce [or welcome] himself to NYC.

    Huge ego but beautiful illustration!

    These are so horrible. Insulting to LA, and ugly too.
