Although smart is not exactly what engages our primarily interest – since our "Chromjuwelen Électrique“ documentary (embedded above) we kinda like this little fellow.
smart just presented their brand-new fortwo and forfour. Some say both models look a Cygnet – we have to admit we like the Asiatic Manga-styled face. Finally the car has something that looks like a bonnet!
"Chosen from hundreds of concept cars produced between 1932 and the present day, Dream Cars (May 21 - September 07, 2014) presents some of the world's most breathtaking concept cars built between 1934 and 2001. Like most concept cars, those on display were never intended for production. Imagine an egg-shaped electric car, an exterior surface made of flexible fabric, or a jet fighter rolling down the highway – all of these were among the ideas dreamed up by designers and are featured in these galleries."
Well, if you are still looking for a reason to go on vacation to Atlanta – what about this brilliant Motorkultur exhibition?
Just because we are working hard on the relaunch of chromjuwelen.com doesn't mean we stopped publishing our web finds or selected stories from our Contributing Network. Of course, at the moment we don’t produce lots of Chromjuwelen reportages, but our social branches like Tumblr are busier than ever. Regarding Tumblr (Chromjuwelen, Chromjuwelen Motor Öl) we are looking forward to set a new record soon: 15k followers. Yeah!
"Your stories, your international network, your multidimensional brand Chromjuwelen — DUDES, YOU ARE SITTING ON A GOLDMINE!" — that's what Chris and I often have heard since we launched Chromjuwelen.com back in 2005. But as stated in "It’s time to get focussed" we suspect that we buried — faced with so many funky and irresistible interweb opportunities — our Unique Selling Proposition — STORYTELLING. So it’s high time for digging. First of all for our USPs, then for gold.
We decided we'll to do it publicly, with opened visor. In short: We'll use storytelling to hack our broken storytelling. Virtually as a a self-prescribed therapy. To illustrate our mission, we'll borrow Wendy’s famous claim as our battle cry. 'Cause "WHERE'S THE BEEF?" hits the nail on the head. Especially these days, where the media scene seems to explode and everybody affirms he's making millions. We don't believe the hype.
We've got a long list of topics we would like to discuss, including things like money (of course), reach, trendsetters, language and culture — just to name a few. So stay tuned and let us know in the comments what you think. And of course, we still speak Deutsch. So don’t hesitate.
