So, I was driving home this evening across Rt. 54 between New Port Ritchie and Land O Lakes, FL when I saw a landscaping truck pull out of a side road in front of me. No big deal, right? Then, I get a look at what is painted on the side of the trailer behind it, "Blade Runner Landscaping". They even used the same font, so you know the owner is a fan (I wonder if they're a member here). There's apparently another in Texas, and one in Sarasota, FL.

Anybody else ever come across a BR related business? Not just a coincidentally common name, but one where the owner is giving his/her own private "shout out" to the movie?

How about this truck? I found it last week in the road (not this pic, I was unable to do while driving). Tipography is the same. Czech company is using BR font...

Very cool stuff. I have never seen any business in my area that has a Blade Runner influence, but they seem to be out there.

Thanks for sharing

There's a business in Phoenix I saw while driving around one day that was using the BR font. Think it was a garage.

Found this too: Shimako-Dominguez, LLC http://www.shimako.com/ While the name is not exact, I think that is what they were going for.
