Solo Dining in NYC; The Metropolitan Museum's Polarizing New Logo; Diseases Abound on the Subway

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's new logo was unveiled last week and people have been quick to share a wide array of (not always kind) opinions. However, we see The Met's strategic move for what it really is: a piece to the much larger puzzle of an overall re-brand; and a step to creating fluidity for the iconic museum across all touch points. So from all of us here at BLKBOX, bravo. (cc:@wolffolins) #themet #design #branding #agency
