Jon Jackson / Adios LA

Jon Jackson Adios LA

Wonderfully unique concept, execution and typography from L.A. (now NYC) based designer Jon Jackson.

Description from Jon’s site: “Adios LA is a visual goodbye to the city Jon Jackson has called home for years as the artist heads east making New York his new home. Not wanting to string LA along, he has decided to firmly break it off through a graphic billboard series posted on the famous streets of his first love.Jon Jackson has spent nearly his entire life wearing shorts living in LA. He is now zipping the pant legs back on and moving east. Jon is leaving Los Angeles to work for HUGE as a Creative DIrector in Brooklyn”

Best of luck in NYC, Jon!

The photos of the billboards in situ are hilarious. What a prank! He should do something similar to announce his new “relationship” with Brooklyn.

These are really fantastic!
