While staying in New York City in 2013, I quickly realised one thing; my ever-loyal laptop was essential. Whether it was applying to jobs and internships, getting to know my way around the city or finding where was the cheapest place to eat, I couldn’t have done any of it without it. With some vinyl insulation tape handy, i decided to give it a little badge of honour…
Another view of the NYC Skyline decal. …the big apple hovering above the city was merely a coincidence
A photo i took of the fantastic Brooklyn bridge, and living relatively close to it, i was tempted to make a decal of this view instead. However while on the bridge i took another photo which changed my mind…
The iconic Manhattan skyline! When i took this photo i knew instantly i’d have to use the silhouette of it somehow.
Preparing for development...
The city under construction. More than anything i thought it would be a fun little project achievable by anyone who has insulation tape.
The completed Big Apple.
Another shot showing the skyline decal…
The decal fittingly looking out over the skyscrapers of New York. No need to spend >£20 on decals. Grab some insulation tape or vinyl and make one yourself!
