Last year, we worked with digital artist Deladeso to create a series of murals in LA. From Venice to Melrose, the Coliseum to the top of Runyon Canyon! It was a wild ride and we are so happy that some amazing Angelenos stopped to take a photo and share with us what they think is hiding in plain sight. Can you guess our answer to that question? Parking! Use Pavemint to reserve that spot you never thought you could: in your neighbor’s driveway or the parking lot of your local dry cleaner.
Read on to watch our behind the scenes video and see our 7 favorite #PlainSight star sightings!
1. Zayn Malik
Yeah, you read that right. Zayn Malik featured our Plain Sight wall at his record release party in NYC last year!
2. Cody Walker
The one and only Cody Walker hiked to the top of Runyon Canyon to balance on one leg with us! **Sighs**
3. Brittany Furlan
The former Vine superstar snapped this pic by one of our murals in LA and kinda just stole the show, you know?
4. Milana Vayntrub
We fell even more madly in love with Milana when we learned she moonlights as a beanbag sommelier!
5. Jon David Maner
We absolutely love when Angelenos like JD Maner use our #PlainSight campaign to send messages of love out into the world from in front of our murals in LA!
5. Josh Darnit
Vine star turned YouTube genius Josh Darnit found our mural in Venice and stopped to remind us all that he’s… old. You’re not that old, Josh!
6. Greg Grunberg
Heroes star Greg Grunberg became our personal hero when he visited one of our more popular murals in LA on Highland in Hollywood!
7. The Pavemint Team
We can’t help it! Our team worked so hard to make this mural campaign a success and we’re grateful for every single one of them! So obviously this group photo is one of our favorites.
