Why do we crave experience?
The value of creating a Multimedia experience

It was about 113 000 people who were in awe in front of the Sagrada Familia at the moment. But why we do crave experience, especially shared experience in public?

+Moment Factory starts the new content series called "Factory Spotlight" to share their storyboard and experience for its client's breathtaking new media projects.  

Check the full story (chapter #1):

The Curious mind: Designer = Craftsman via +Lolë 

I personally have a several items from +Lolë (e.g. Lavanyah Camisole []). As Bill Cunningham quoted in his documentary "I'm not interested in celebrities, with their free dresses. I'm interested in clothes.", I am interested in the creation of clothes, the designers and their thought process.

Hygge Time to Discuss Fashion Design Inspiration
Wait… what is “hygge” and what does it have to do with fashion design?
The process of designing, weather for clothes, furniture or websites, starts with inspiration. Finding the right element to draw inspiration from can be the toughest challenge; it must match cause, personality and purpose. It has to be perfect, and open the right door for the right path.
How does it work for Andy Thê-Anh, Design Director at Lolë?
Andy collects magazines, DVDs and most importantly… he travels the world searching for trends and ideas. This is how he came across the concept hygge, which kicked off the inspiration for the 2014 Fall/Winter collection.
Hygge Philosophy
Hygge comes from Norwegian, where it means something like "well-being." It first appeared in Danish writing around the end of the 18th Century and the Danes have embraced it ever since. Its current meaning is all about creating a nice, warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life, surrounded with good people. It includes the warm glow of candlelight, the company of friends and family, eating and drinking, and even the idea of sitting around the table for hours on end discussing the big and small things in life. It is perhaps this hygge philosophy that has put Denmark at the top of the chart for well-being and citizen happiness among all countries in the world. In other words… Hygge sounds très Lolë!
The rest is his-story…
Once Denmark was established as the core inspiration, Andy and his team identified areas of the country that would inspire the color stories for the season’s styles. The picture above is a drawing (yes, Andy still hand-draws and we love him for that!) from the North Zealand story. Over the centuries, Danish royalty came to play in North Zealand and Shakespeare’s Prince Hamlet came to contemplate life at Kronborg Castle, gatekeeper of the Baltic Sea. Dubbed the Danish Riviera, this beautiful area remains a popular vacation spot near Copenhagen renowned for its pristine beaches, deep woodlands and awe-inspiring Roskilde Fjord. The colours we find there: a broody blend of Black, Coco and Frost complemented by woodsy tones of Oak, Portabella and Mineral.
Stay tuned for more about this collection’s design process. In the meantime,

The Curious Mind: What is Oxymoronic
The rhetorical term oxymoron, made up of two Greek words meaning "sharp" and "dull," is itself oxymoronic.

[Speed and Patient]
The world is moving faster than ever before. Technologies afford us instant access and split-second connections. At the same time, consumer expectations are rising as we learn to take speed for granted. ( Despite of the speed of change, we are required to be patient more than ever before (or it is "better to be patient and persistent). Turmoil and change may be a sign of past. Dreaming 5 or 10 years ahead, we need to be "not so fast".

[Discovering Oxymoronic]

[CULTURE] #wedoitinpublic  : the vision behind our signature
This video introduces our vision, what inspires us to bring people together, from the moment of creation to the full live experience.

Getting together is a bit like sitting around a campfire with family or friends to tell stories, sing, laugh, and chat.

Over the years and with the evolution of technology, public gatherings have primarily take place at concerts, festivals and other cultural events; all the while with the same goal of being in the moment and living a shared experience.

We create new campfires: digital campfires.

See why teamwork, technologies and creativity are key factors in bringing people together:

Have a great day, everyone!
Data Density and Semantic Search

We frequently fail online because we know to much to do the right thing. Let me explain, Superman’s X-Ray vision ( which sounds wonderful to have must require a very specifically wired brain to actually adequately deal with the flow of information it provides him with.

In the offline world, because there is no real choice, we subconsciously do everything in a carefully considered way. The way we set up the physicality of a business, the buildings, décor, lighting, logo, colours, fonts and even merchandise positioning has a logic that resonates with the target audience. 

Data density arises there as a matter of course because we do not have to focus on the structure of the building, its building materials or the way the plumbers and electricians connected everything behind the scenes so that power flows along the wires and water runs from the taps. 

Online, unfortunately, we acquire X-Ray vision. We know the platform our websites are built on, we make choices about plugins and consider the benefits of interlinking social media sharing buttons. We add content while we think of keywords, we create pages while we think of click flow. By focusing on the structural data we forget to focus on the data that matters. 

When time and resources are finite there is a distinct benefit to be gained by focusing on the things that matter first and then the technicalities that govern them, unless of course, you happen to have Superman’s super-wired brain.
