We believe behind every great project is a great team. So, we are thrilled to have played our part in the success of CBRE and owner Brookfield Properties selling of Newport Tower in Jersey City for a record $377.5 million, the biggest price tag NJ has ever seen for an office property.
While REA has grown into many areas of design and branding over the past decade, one of the lines of business it continues to be passionate about is it’s Investment Sales business. For close to 15 years we have been setting the high water mark on the key marketing tool for selling large real estate assets the Offering Memorandum. While REA’s competitors service this same market, we promise and deliver on a non – standard, non template driven product that exemplifies smart modern design.

Sometimes the best design inspiration can stem from what we pass on the streets, painted and stenciled onto walls by our nocturnal and mysterious counterparts. What we find is that street artists use many of the same spatial and graphic elements that designers use in creating their work. Here are some examples of excellent typographic designs by famous street artists D*face, Mobstr, Aske, and CT, for inspiration.
D*face is most known for his logo-like stickers and cartoonish pictures, but shows he’s also capable of creating his own typography.
Mobstr’s pieces usually consist of simple, black stenciled quips — which only make his jokes funnier in their context. He shows typography doesn’t need to be fancy to be clever.
Russian artist Aske (meaning “Ashes” in Norwegian) chose the name because he liked the shape and flow of the letters. He employs graphic elements similar to that seen in 1950s and 60s designs.
Russian artist CT employs elements of movement, geometry, and optical illusions to create extremely bold and striking pieces, which appear more like logos than graffiti.

When it comes to typographic innovation, Herb Lubalin(1918 – 1981) is one of the most influential graphic designers of the 20th century. He pushed the boundaries in both type and design, and introduced styles still applied to design today. His impact on the art community has shown throughout the years – whether it’s design for high-end companies or design at the grass-roots level. His roles, ranging from agency art directors to publication designers, show the depth and scope of his knowledge, talent, and insight in typographic communication. His countless type lockups are extremely well-known and often imitated by modern designers, but his claim to fame is his typeface, ITC Avant Garde. His legacy will live on for centuries to come.
