Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Things that have made my day over the past couple of weeks:

The South China Morning Post do a really good job of short-form documentaries and vignettes, this one about nightlife in the Pakistani city of Karachi struck me as particularly emblematic of the changes in the country over the years. Ageing middle-class liberals play music and party in private houses, where they used to party inside nightclubs and hotels across the country’s politicians paid more attention to Islamists.

Glove-like socks are made from material stronger than Kevlar – a different take on footwear design by the Swiss Barefoot Company.

Amazing mix of projection mapping and contemporary dance.

William Hill made this great advert for their mobile app under the theme Take Control, what I find curious about this and other videos I am starting to see have high production values but basically no promotion budget. This one has 3,163 views as I write this.

LOG-ON in Hong Kong made these great videos to promote their stores, its simple but engaging.
