José Guíza’s Weekly Illustrated “Windows of New York”

Windows of New York - 219-e-4th

Windows of New York” is a beautiful project by José Guizar, a young Mexican graphic designer based in New York. Since moving to the Big Apple José has developed an obsession with the windows of the city and every week he illustrates one and posts it to his site. José describes the project as the “product of countless steps of journey through the city streets”, and each window that he illustrates is one that caught his eye. For José the project is “part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up”.

I love the simplicity of José’s project. To see such a simple idea realized so perfectly is really refreshing. While the images above are clearly beautiful on their own, I urge you to see them in the context of the website. José has a wonderful way with color and seeing strip-after-strip of these colurful illustrated windows is bound to brighten up even the darkest of days. Go check out the project here.
