Just wanted to "Let U Know"!

Hooray! Nacional Records, US home of Manu Chao, Nortec Collective, Los Amigos Invisibles and other alternative Latin artists released our video for Plastilina Mosh's single "Let U Know" this week.

Director, Brian Liu and cameraman/editor Greek Prince went down to Monterrey, Mexico to shoot the video. PMosh have been friends of ours for about 9 years, and we've also known our producer, Chuy, for years from DJing at La Santanera in Playa Del Carmen.

Jonaz came up with the initial concept of dressing the band like sheiks to see what kind of reaction we would get from people in town. In the end, our base concept centered around a fictitious country of sheiks who BUY Mexico, so the first thing we did is design the fictitious new country's flag and gather props. The rest came together PMosh style!

Many thanks to Dan Cooper for helping Brian and Nikos with the edit.

Here's a flickr set (click for full set) of some press/production photos Brian shot on set.

"So many dogs, so few recipes" - Stefan Sagmeister

Notorious designer Stefan Sagmeister was in town last night speaking to a small sold out audience at The Corcoran. Ive always been inspired and amazed at much of Sagmeister's work, and most of all his work process. Even his failures are fascinating. If he speaks in your town, do go see him, even if you are not a designer. His words will resonate throughout whatever it is you do, wherever you do it.

He spoke about the joys of time off, and how it helps create more quality creative work, how to achieve "happiness" in design work, sharing much of his philosophy, how it ties into his actual work, and showed many of the public art pieces he has been creating including videos, objects, installations, and graphic design. Also interesting was the time he devoted to other works which inspired him or made him happy.

this is pretty much the first part of his presentation:
