Paris Versus New York

The premise of Vahram Muratyan’s Paris vs New York: A tally of two cities is to present a “friendly visual match between those two cities, as seen by a Parisian-based-and-lover on New York: details, cliches and contradictions.” Muratyan, who is the co-founder of art direction and graphic design studio ViiZ, has created a blog that is not only visually striking, but also charming, witty and a little bit cheeky. The juxtaposition of the various icons of the two cities and the details that make up their urban identity is explored through subjects as diverse as bread (baguette vs. bagel), the weather and pests (Parisian pigeon vs. New York rat). I can’t wait to see this project develop further.
