Video Graffiti Art

Graffiti ArtAfter attending the La Jolla Festival or Art this weekend to see the latest works from our friend, Kevin Winger with Mod-Est Gallery, I came across this unrelated video that was the most abstract form of street art I have seen in some time. I have always loved street art and seen so much creativity come out of this genre. This video is unique and utilizes what Einstein considered the 4th dimention… Time. With video projecting onto the wall, the artist reveals the  canvas of the video. Awesome!

“Crown Point Design did a great job for us! We will be back.”

eastcascadeCrown Point Design recently received a 5-star review from Larry with East Cascade Products. The review says:

When they completed the site the next step of getting it up, running, and working correctly was next, and it went very smooth, they had everything thought of in advance and prepared. Crown Point Design has such an easy and logical process to determine and dial in exactly what we wanted to say on our website that we are already preparing to have them do another.

500 People in 100 Seconds

Creativity with DesignWhile taking a look around for some frames I stumbled across this video. At CPD  we talk about creativity and seeing things that nobody else has done. To me, this was both. I am sure there was a lot of effort to stitch this all together and sync it just right and at the end of the day it was probably for zero profit, but it currently has over 1.5 million views and gave people like me a smile. Happy to share it with anyone that may stumble upon this blog like I did to the video.

Now, we’re happy to announce that we’ve selected San Diego non-profit Just In Time for Foster Youth as our 2012 Kaizen recipient. This organization provides transitioning foster youth with opportunities for self-sufficiency through emergency support, essential resources, and caring personal guidance. JIT is currently the only volunteer-driven non-profit organization in San Diego that functions as an extended family for youth who have aged out of the foster care system.
