More Great Signage: The Pacific Center Famima!!

A week ago I mentioned how much I liked the aesthetic of the new Rite Aid at 5th and Broadway. Just today I noticed the signage for the not-yet-opened Famima!! in the Pacific Center and have to say that I'm really pleased with it as well.

The solid grey bar with cut-out letters works really well, and the round sign that sticks out from the building is great. This is particularly true when it's viewed in a pairing with the sign for the new Starbucks on the corner.

This Famima!! has a completely different exterior the one at 800 S. Figueroa, but both work very well. In designing storefronts it's crucial to make the product fit the building and I think all three stores accomplish this quite nicely.

In related news, this second Downtown Famima!! is really making progress and looks like it could be open within a week or two.

Update (Tuesday): Sean_Yoda_Rouse put a photo in the flickr poll this morning that shows the store exterior lit up at night. I really like how the color only shows up after dark.
