Scott captured this video at the Alpini Festival in Bassano Del Grappa over the weekend. He made me post it.

Brand Next

In the Store for Tomorrow, you don’t pay to get; you give to get. You do not need any cash; instead, you are required to commit to an action. Time, ideas, skills, effort and content are the currency.

Held in London and New York, Brand Next revolutionizes the way we think and buy by helping us to do more and better, and we are very proud to announce that former fabricanti Bethany Koby and dearest Michael Ciancio are part of it. Great job guys!

Charlton Heston RIP

TOCA ME

This year’s Toca Me Design Conference was held in Munich a couple of weeks ago, and our own Andy Cameron was a speaker. He came in to Fabrica afterwards and casually mentioned he had met James Paterson, Mario Klingemann, Erik Natzke, and Andreas Müller, etc. Awesome. He also had the priviledge of having his initials sculpted in foam, set in wax and melted with a heat gun. Also Awesome.

The trailer for the conference was created by Dvein, of Barcelona. Find our Andy at 1′ 30”.

Africa Works

Africa Works is a new global communication campaign in favour of micro-credit developed by Fabrica, in partnership with Youssou N’Dour and Birima, his co-operative credit society in Senegal that offers financial services for SMEs, craftspeople, professionals and artists to help them start and independently develop their business.

Youssou N’Dour, one of Africa’s best-known singers and a man committed to humanitarian projects, comments: “my personal experience led me to realise that when a loan, however small, is used to develop an idea or realise a project, it is an effective way of fighting poverty. This is why everybody must understand the value of micro-credit. Africa doesn’t want charity, it wants repayable subsidised loans.”
