let's blow up the dance floor...and some other things while we're at it

I've fallen in love with the trio of directors from CANADA, a production company out of Barcelona, Spain. Also, the fantastic cinematography from Marc Gómez del Moral.

Their videos are full of vivid, exhilarating, provoking imagery, with a slightly humorous undertone...

Watching these little artistic beauties makes me want to dance. They make me want to fill my car up with arts and crafts, toys, fireworks, bikes, cameras and a plethora of random curiosities and take a road trip. A road trip to the desert, the mountains, the ocean, the woods or even a rooftop where I can just let my imagination explode in a furry of color and light and sensation!

Go on. explore. let yourself get carried away...

Blending form, function and conscience can be tricky in business, but it is very possible and becoming more and more easy to navigate these waters the more companies, design houses, manufacturers, etc jump on board.

It's so important for big business to get on this bus...better late than never, right?
