My postcard describes elements from a normal day at my local farmers market. To add a level of complexity to the image, these elements form letters that spell out ‘Brooklyn’ in a playful ‘hidden message’ style.
Name: Sasha Prood
Place you live? Brooklyn, New York
Can you sum up your spot? I live in Brooklyn, New York, which is a short subway ride away from Manhattan. Brooklyn has a low-key atmosphere and is filled with families, young professionals, dogs and college students. There are lots of great cultural opportunities to take advantage of including museums, parks, shops, flea and farmer’s markets, restaurants, etc. And if that is not enough, nearby Manhattan has much much more.
Occupation? Typographer and illustrator
Preoccupation? Playing with my dog Nicky
What is a perfect day in Brooklyn? A warm and sunny day at the flea market
If someone was visiting, what must they do? There are too many great things to pick between—maybe a museum and a show.
What and where is a perfect meal? There are too many—in New York City you can get the best version of any type of food that you could possibly want.
What is the worst thing about NYC? Any of the tourist traps such as Canal Street or Times Square
A little known fact? America’s first roller coaster was built in Brooklyn, New York.
Where is your favorite place in the world? I could never pick just one—I love New York City, Barcelona, Zurich, Tel Aviv, and more!
