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.

Currently in Sweden, I had the honour to assist earlier today to the World Premiere of the new Volvo V60, right in the heart of Suburbia of Stockholm. I was part with many others in participation of a non-traditional way to unveil a new car. If you think about the traditional way of a conference hall or a motor show. It wasn't the case at all. We had a really warm welcome in a beautiful house where you were able to walk around and see first hands the diverse needs and realities of modern family life.
Exciting to share that Abduzeedo will be heading to Sweden, Stockholm to be more precise. We will be covering the launch of the new Volvo model 2019 V60 wagon.

But first, let's celebrate the arrival of the new V60 on February 21st.
What I particularly like about LYNK & CO philosophy, approach and business model are the fact that is more than just a car. There’s a definitive mindset behind this brand to be wide open as an open source to creation and collaboration. Some of us might think that CO from LYNK & CO would mean company but it actually means Co:operation, Co:mmunity and Co:nnection. We gotta that play of words!

That's one of the reasons I love to see car design projects. The sketching and ideation during this part of the process is never forgotten. A great example is the project that Mark Cansick titled BMW Osmotic Drive - Final Year Project Flatwork. An amphibious luxury vehicle for 2023.
Ford has chosen the Mustang, their most iconic car, to illustrate the evolution of colors in vehicles over the past 50 years. The goal was to show how colors follow fashion trends, behaviors and tastes of the customers from time to time. A historic study done by Ford shows that in the past 5 decades the color of cars varied from shades of brown and soft yellows to more audacious tones that helped to differentiate one of the world's most popular sports car.

The fact that the last video we've posted here was a car commercial as the one we're posting today has nothing to do with coincidence. It's an awesome thing how these commercials are getting better, and better. And of course, they are not always the same. Last week's Lexus commercial had a lot of motion graphics, today's video is totally simple, but beautifully done, and I bet you'll love it. Enjoy! ;)
