hong kong style stained glass

March 26, 2008 by mimecine

You have to hand it to Hong Kong, the place knows it’s mission in life. Whereas stained glass would normally have a religious tone to it, this one from the 80’s (we think based on the style of the computer and phone) has a definite hi-tech / future forward ring.

March 5, 2008 by mimecine

Neon or simple, signage in Hong Kong is amazing. The color pallets are very inspiring too. To me the pace of the signs reflect the pace of the people and the place. One day I would like to visit some Hong Kong neon workshops and sign painters.

These two ladies sum it […]

It feels very relaxed and everyday. In the past it was more bustling and frequented mainly by writers, […]
