There’s No Parking In Brooklyn – A Visual Study

I’m fascinated by the diverse array of “No Parking” signs that sprout behind Brooklyn curb cuts. They’re little slices of folk art hidden in plain sight.

Despite the universal need for “NO PARKING” signage, there’s little consensus on their appearance. I see old-school Brooklyn, hipster Bushwick and graffiti kids in every driveway.

Signs can be threatening or matter of fact; professional or comically childish. A ubiquitous, yet hardly uniform feature of the urban landscape.

You can find the complete collection of 2013 Brooklyn No Parking photos over on my Tumblr.

I’m Looking For A Code Project

I’ve long been interested in  front-end web development, so recently I decided to set aside the time really dig in and study Javascript, CSS and HTML seriously. These studies are only as useful as the practice they’re put to, so I’d love to map out a real-life web site I can build from scratch and deploy for real users.

Do you know of a project or organization who needs help building their web presence? A bit about my capabilities: I’m proficient in the usual front-end tools: CSS, JS and HTML. I don’t have significant back-end expertise, so my ideal project will not involve a database or CMS. I’m interested in taking the General Assembly FEWD course, so I may end up using this practice project as a class exercise.

Of course I plan to take a heavily discounted rate compared to what more seasoned pros might charge. For the right cause I’ll work pro bono. If you think you’ve got an idea that might interest me, please get in touch and we can chat more about what you’d like to build.
