Top: “The Penrose is an amazing gastropub on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The logo and branding are beautiful, but once I walked in and saw that tile work, there was no turning back.” —Joe Geis, Street Type
Bottom: “Today, packaging trends are leaning towards the unadorned—there’s a desire to strip away all heritage cues for a more minimal and pared-down look. Every time I find an old package like this one, its typographic personality and visual charm hold my attention longer than any modern version.” —Ryan Herras, Type vs. Time
