Brainstorm a more beautiful banner

banner1.jpgThe creative proprietors of Clementine have not only beautified The Junction by their mere presence, but also have joined the Junction Association Beautification Committee, and one of its current projects is to replace those somewhat dated banners (example at right) trumpeting the shopping district’s free-parking zones. (An endangered species around the city, apparently.) And they’ve put out a call for design proposals for the new banner. Deadline is May 31.

    Speaking of redesign, when will Westwood Village dig itself out of the 1980s with its signage on Delridge?
