“I am an illustrator and I almost exclusively work in pixel. So it was only natural, that I pixelated the “I Love NY” logo as well. We live in Brooklyn, and I love it most of the times. But there are times when I really hate the city as well! I do have some kind of love/hate relation ship with NY…”

Dozens of Ways to ♥ New York.Via The New York Times: “Now that JetBlue Airways is using Milton Glaser’s famous “I ♥ NY” logo in a new advertising campaign, The Times asked readers to imagine commingling Mr. Glaser’s logo with other New York brands or slogans.”

“The thing about that New York Times request to commingle Milton Glaser’s logo with other slogans or Brands was that many if not all of the submissions did not follow the assignment!  That alone was funny.

I loved the submissions especially the pretzel one and I think there were two of them.  One in red and the other was a picture of an actual pretzel in place of the heart.  How did I decide on the my design?  The first thing that popped into my head was my friend Andre Betz who works in New York at his own company Bugedit.  He wears the characteristic nerdy glasses and he is like the epitome of a successful sheik nerd.  Actually, I think his glasses kind of define him. That and he is bald on most of his head, but he looks good bald. not like most of us.   I have this kind of game I play with him where I send him Photoshopped images of pictures- I randomly find on the internet-referring to his glasses or him in some way.  Basically, I like to poke fun at him, but it is because he is easy to make fun of and sometimes I think he needs a little more fun and not take himself too seriously. Actually the same is true for myself.  One was of him as Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes.  I found this image on the internet of an older Calvin holding a stuffed animal of Hobbes.  I made him bald with some silly badly drawn wisps of hair on his head and also stuck in an iphone and earphones and a set of Audi carkeys in his hand. I sent it to Andre.  He loved it and put it as his profile picture.  So back to Logo.  I searched for an image of the quintessential nerdy glasses on Google images.  Found one at a decent resolution and saved it.  Brought it into Photoshop. Cut out all the white around and inside the glasses and then copied it and pasted it onto the I Heart NY logo.  I mean it was quick and dirty.  I sent it to Andre immediately after.  Incidentally, I got no response from him on this one. But I am going to send it to him again.  I like the design, I think I mis-labeled it when I put in “I love Nerds in New York”  I think it should read.  I Love Nerdy New York. Oh well,  It was fun.”

“It was The New York Times who was taking submissions for adaptations of the original I ♥ logo, specifically coupled with a New York City brand and I actually really do ♥ The New York Times so it was kind of a no brainer. I don’t have a physical subscription to the New York Times but have often thought about doing so on the weekends.

“The only time I really have to read the paper is at work, which I do just about everyday online. If something in the New York City area or the world is happening the New York Times will know about it. I also get email notifications from the New York Times which helps me stay on top of breaking news and events.”

What are your favorite sections in the Sunday paper? “Well again, I don’t have a subscription but my favorite parts of the online newspaper are definitely the Dining section, any of the videos and the interactive graphics. Modern Love in the Fashion section is quite good too.”

And, what single section do you go to first on Sunday? “Doesn’t really apply to me as I don’t get the paper delivered but if I did it would probably be the Travel section. Sunday is a great day to dream of places to go.”

“When I read the Times piece asking for reader submissions, this image instantly popped into my head. My first thought about it was that I was juxtaposing two New York brands. I also thought you could read into it in many different ways. Whatever your thoughts about New York City, New York providing condoms or safe sex, I thought it would be provocative and hopefully make people think a little.”

“I was born in Italy and grew up in Rome, Tel-Aviv and New York. I was a New Yorker in my teens, 9th and 10th grade (this was in ’74 to ’76, the Twin Towers were growing out of the ground).

I kept a delicious nostalgia of the city as experienced by a 15 years old : Baskin Robbins’ “Fudge Twirl”, guitar lessons at the “Y”, a pair of carton-stiff “Levi’s” from (a cool new store around the corner” the Gap” (yes!), ice skating in Central Park. We could see the reservoir from our living room window (12th floor), and the sunset firing up the windows of the west-side front line. Magic!
“Speaking the local language of places you visit changes one’s traveling experience, and gets you closer to people you meet.”

I came to Paris to study Graphic Design with the clear intention of going back to NY after graduation, and “live the NY pace to the full”, this time as an adult. And nearly 30 years later, I’m still in Paris.

I did go back to NY a few times, to visit friends, but I now feel “a stranger in the city” and the “NY pace” I longed for, does not seem as appealing to me anymore …

“I’m still in Paris.”

I used to rush to the cinema to see the new Woody Allen and get my yearly NY dose (but he’s been “traveling” in his last films) and any romantic NY Christmas comedy will do ! These movies make my nostalgia simmer!

“I did go back to NY a few times, to visit friends, but I now feel ‘a stranger in the city’, and the “NY pace” I longed for, does not seem as appealing to me anymore …”

No, the pace in Paris is NOT the same, nor is the attitude (I think…it might have changed.)

As for food, there is French food in NY and American food in Paris… No, I don’t think THAT’s the primary difference.

(The Paris vs New York blog you made me discover is BRILLIANT !)

I think that knowing foreign languages opens up one’s mind and life in general. I was lucky to have to learn 4 languages in my childhood. It comes so easily when you’re a kid. Personally, I don’t mind Americans not speaking French, as I can manage English. But I know from experience that speaking the local language of places you visit changes one’s traveling experience, and gets you closer to people you meet.

I Loved New York: Daniela’s writing was so great and personal I kept in its stream of conscious essay format. It also echoes; to an extent; how I feel about New York.  These are the questions I Loved New York posed to Daniela: You live in France? How often to you get to New York? What are your favorite landmarks or icons? Do you have a routine when you land in the city; lunch here, cafe here, dinner here? Have you seen the Paris Vs New York blog; it’s really great. What are the primary differences between Paris and New York; is it the food? The attitude is much the same; as is the pace. Don’t you wish more Americans spoke French; when I visited with my sister years ago; I was embarrassed not to know the language even as my sister did.

“Milton Glaser’s “I Heart NY” is the eponymous rebus for Gotham. As an artist, I have painted many of Manhattan’s landmarks, on location, becoming part of the fabric of the city. The instant I heard about the New York Times redesign project, I knew I had to get in on this.
First, I brought Glaser’s original image into Photoshop.

After selecting all four shapes, I then selected the inverse and clicked delete — revealing a simple template. Next, I took snippets of my location paintings, and began inserting them into the background. After some trial and error, I chose four paintings near and dear to my heart. The top two icons include sky, the bottom two show purely architecture… this was a dialectic visual cue to create depth.

“All in, this design allowed me to share my love of every inch of this city, from Battery Park to the Upper, Upper East Side.”

The “I” features the Woolworth Building at night, which was painted from the 32nd floor of 7 World Trade Center; the Heart is made up of the skyline from Time Out New York’s 12th floor office; the “N” is the 59th Street Apple Store; and the “Y” is The Guggenheim. Each painting captures important views and experiences in my life.

The Woolworth Building was my first night painting, and provided a true opportunity to soak up the evolving World Trade Center rebirth. There is something indescribably peaceful about painting the sparkling lights. Following being named Time Out New York’s Most Creative New Yorker in December 2009, Time Out agreed to let me paint their stunning view.

Spending a few weeks at TONY HQ truly illuminated how hard everyone works to give New York a list of what’s hot each week. Behind the Apple Store lies the GM building, where I was part of a team that closed a 500 million dollar construction loan. The closing took 48 hours… I remember the sun setting, rising, setting and rising again before we were done. And, of course, The Guggenheim, a building I intend to paint every summer for the next twenty years (this is painting number two.)

All in, this design allowed me to share my love of every inch of this city, from Battery Park to the Upper, Upper East Side.”

Borbay. Voted Time Out New York’s Most Creative New Yorker in 2009, Upper East Side artist Borbay has painted on-location around the world, including The Guggenheim, TriBeCa Grand, Woolworth Building, Elaine’s, Chrysler Building, Hancock Tower (Chicago) and San Marco Cathedral (Milan). His work is composed of collaged New York Post headlines, and layer upon layer of acrylic paint. Driven to capture the actuality of society, this series visually displays the paradox of love, lust, murder, sex, sports, betrayal, triumph, religion, rape and politics in one place… concepts any person reading a daily newspaper will see juxtaposed without a second thought.

His architectural impressionist collage paintings have been featured in Time Out New YorkWall Street Journal JapanNew York PostWhitewallThe Huffington Post and more. Carlos Fresneda of El Mundo recently penned, “The undisputed kings of the season are undoubtedly BanksyShepard Fairey and Mr. Brainwash, backed this week by the new local hero, Jason Borbay , re-inventor (of) collage.” Process-driven, Borbay shares the creation of each piece through social media, posting frequent updates to his blogTwitterLinkedIn andFacebook accounts. If art plus social media is the new frontier, Borbay intends to be at the forefront. His works have been acquired for private collections around the world; as well as the permanent corporate collections of Red Bull, Pabst Blue Ribbon and BEVFORCE.
