Taste of Universal has sci-fi vibe. I always wanted to be an astronaut as a kid so I've incorporated space into my brand. To me an astronaut is the best type of Super Hero . He is constantly curious an over-achieving adventurer and something of a rebel. Being a DTLA resident I feel that describes many of my neighbors.
