The new LYNK & CO 02 Crossover SUV: Changing mobility forever

The new LYNK & CO 02 Crossover SUV: Changing mobility forever

Currently in the beautiful city of Amsterdam to cover the launch of the next step for LYNK & CO, we have witnessed their experience back to Berlin. Now we are here in a city where everything is about their artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with never-ending #straightfacades. I really like it here, you won't be surprised seeing people taking selfies and sharing a kiss. This is how Amsterdam has its own beauty. With that same charming effect, LYNK & CO has a strong forté at creating launch events that will activate all your senses into a seamless experience. Let's just say they put up an amazing show to introduce us to the most "shareable and ultra-connected" car, the 02. In their words, It's not about the power of the car anymore. It's about changing mobility forever, what they mean by that? Well, it will be more than your traditional car dealerships, think of urban-located brand boutiques located for which where their first store will be in Amsterdam. Embracing the same philosophy they stand for, they will also tour Europe with what they called: "Offline Stores", I love how this company goes ahead at pushing us to buy cars directly online, ditching our car keys and instead unlock cars using our phones, enhancing our car ownership to allow car-sharing through an app, and pay your car through a subscription that will kind of remind you of your phone bills. This is where they are headed, this has been again an incredible experience as we look forward to 2020 when sales will start in Europe. Dank je LYNK & CO! In their words In Amsterdam today, the third model in LYNK & CO's stunning line-up of cars. 02 was revealed at an urban adventures themed launch party in the Netherlands's Capital.edc As a global brand with a strong European identity, these announcements in our home nations fill me with pride. From our HQ in Sweden, we will roll-out sales with an initial focus on key European cities for our target audience of globally connected urbanities. - Alain Visser, LYNK & CO Senior Vice President Meet LYNK & CO 02   More Links Learn more about LYNK & CO Follow LYNK & CO on Instagram There is more The first European store will open in Amsterdam, quickly followed by new locations in Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels and London as the first cities adopted the brand.

Illustration Series: Cities of Colours

Illustration Series: Cities of Colours

This Sunday, I will be heading out to Amsterdam to cover another launch for you guys. We will keep you posted! In the meantime, as an ABDZ tradition; it's always interesting to discover designers or illustrators from the city you are visiting. I stumbled across the work of Sail Ho Studio, a studio all about illustration and motion design based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. We are taking a look at their beautiful illustrative series: Cities of Colours. City of colors is a journey through six cities to be inspired by their colors, their heritage, their art, and life. And why having just still postcards when we could add life to our illustration? Let that bike ride! Watch the videos to see a full animated version of Amsterdam and London. So, if you could choose, where would you be now?

Travel Photography: Cinematic Amsterdam

Well it looks like we will be heading our way to Amsterdam for another event coverage, it's quite exciting, to be honest! As a tradition now, I would search on Behance for either references and basically visiting the city somehow from a photographer's perspective. For Amsterdam, I really like the style that Amsterdam-based cinematographer and photographer Stijn Hoekstra did with his Cinematic Amsterdam series. Entitled to the theme related to movies, we would happily explore this beautiful canal city through its architectural perspective. Enjoy!

Colorful Illustrations by Roya Hamburger

Roya Hamburger is an illustrator from Amsterdam, Netherlands and since she was a child her favorite activity was drawing and she wanted to turn that talent into her profession. Starting as freelancer she created illustrations for magazines such as FNV and Flair, major magazines in Belgium. Now she has worked for clients such as Cosmopolitan magazine, Elle, M, Avant Garde, ABN-AMRO, Bruna, British Airways, Man Power, Dutch Railways, Postbank, Deloitte and Touche, Peter Stuyvesant and Martini. When working for publishers and advertising agencies objectives always revolves around communicating a message. This is exactly where my passion and skills overlap. When it comes to commissioned work, the main point is “telling another’s story” After sixteen years being a professional in commissioned work, its time for me to tell my own story as well with chosen subjects and communicating in my own way. I have this long-time dream to create work that “broadens consciousness”, with an idealistic flavour, using graphic design, illustration and animation as vehicles. For more information about Roya Hamburger visit her Web site at http://www.royahamburger.net/ deardeer Lost and Found Typographic illustrations The Elbow Room The Only One the Segregation In my work I am always looking for the best possible balance between composition, shape and atmosphere to carry out a certain message. I seek to integrate different images into one by using both graphics and realistic images. So my work gets more depth by merging 2D and 3D. I therefore feel more like a designer then an illustrator per-se. More than once ore twice
