New York-based graphic designer James Campbell Taylor recently reflected on the changing nature of his adopted city, expressed as a series of logos that comment on the relentless expansion of global corporations to the point where they increasingly erase the unique nature of the neighborhoods in which they spring up, like mushrooms after a heavy rain. Appropriately entitled City in Chains, the series reflects the grim reality that, according to the Center for an Urban Future’s State of the Chains, 2013 report, New York City is host to 515 Dunkin Donuts, 467 Subways, 283 Starbucks and 240 McDonalds. Burp. Can you spot the corporation within each logo?
