Pimp Your Ride
Cars only move me in the literal sense, so I don't pay much attention to most cars on the road around me. But this car demanded my attention with its bold design and contrasting colors. Goes to show how powerful design can be when it is used deliberately. You cannot deny the presence of this car, and the color palette and patterns tells you what this company is all about - fun, modern and sophisticated. It was compelling enough to make me visit their website http://www.latavolalinen.com, which is just as exquisite as their cars.
I think most people underestimate the power of design and how it can affect your mood and inspire you to do more. I was having a ho hum day running errands when I saw the van, but it made me smile and perk up behind my wheel. It got me thinking how I can bring an element of style and fun into the most mundane things in my life. It's easy to get bogged down with the drudgery and routine of everyday living, but even a small, beautifully design object can bring a little joy to your day.
