Colossal NYC by Yoni Alter

I’ve said it before that one of my favourite sources of things that are design-related is the Colour Lovers website. If you haven’t seen them yet I encourage you to pay a visit. They recently linked out to a post on My Modern Met featuring artwork by Yoni Alter called Colossal NYC.

It’s a digital work in which all of New York’s iconic buildings are arranged in a 2-dimensional brightly coloured skyline silhouette, in the order that they were completed. Lovely concept, and fascinating to watch how buildings grew larger and larger over time - check the puny Statue of Liberty compared to the Four World Trade Center (which isn’t actually complete yet).
