Every Friday we round up some of our favorite finds on the web this week, from illustrations and videos to fonts and photography.

Park that phone
Ad guys Fernando Barbella and Christiano Neves got tired of other people being distracted in meetings by their mobile phones and so came up with this fun solution. You can download a mobile parking lot from here and start having more productive meetings again.

Go dancers
Filmmaker Michel Gondry has worked his pop promo magic once again with this brilliant video for a new track by UK dance music duo The Chemical Brothers. Go features A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip on vocals and is a hip-shakin’ hit, but the accompanying video involving seven dancers and two poles (no, not that kind of pole dancer) is a masterpiece of synchronicity.

Projected sails
Vivid Sydney is a unique festival of lights, music and ideas currently being held in the Australian city. As part of a huge array of events and installations, UK-based design collective Universal Everything is projecting gorgeous animations and illustrations, like this, on the sails of Sydney’s world famous Opera House.
