How many San Diego references can you find?

How many san diego references can you find?

Detail of the poster wall I did for the refresh of the Flippin’ Pizza in San Marcos, CA. If you’re interested in seeing the logic behind the posters & what not, check the case study here Flippin’ Pizza Case Study

A nod to the NYC streets, the posters solved the graffiti problem & became a huge design feature with people admiring & even taking selfies in front of them. I spent hours designing the collage for the wheat pasted poster wall for each Flippin’ Pizza location, pulling as many local references as I could.
