Coldplay: Art & Design Meets Music Video

I have to be honest. I’m not a big fan of music videos. I like to let music bring to mind whatever imagery my own mind conjures up, the way I like poetry to allow me to feel my own feelings without the emotional interjection of someone reading it aloud.  But that’s another post, probably for my other blog.

The point here is that the band Coldplay has released a music video (directed by visual artists Shynola) that really elevates the realm of music video storytelling. And I’m including it here because it is designed – and illustrated – brilliantly.

It speaks for itself, so here it is. Enjoy!
