FINDINGS I was watching HGTV the other day and someone mentioned the Mannequin Gallery located in Pacoima, California.

READYMADE’S NEW LOOK

BRANDING I just recently went to check out ReadyMade Magazine’s website and was surprised to see that they’ve done a redesign. I canceled my ReadyMade subscription a while ago. However, looks like a redesign might also call for some new and refreshing content. What do you guys think of the new look? I kind of miss the quirky type that the old logo had.
