April.  Month of Spring, of renewal.  Stripe Design Group is going full steam ahead.  I am surprised by my own delight in Ducati as a brand but moreover the ecclectic, ecentric and fascinating people who are on the front line - the dealers.  I have a renewed energy for the search for the perfect design solution.  These projects have the passion and delicacy of a private client project and the happy absence of the 'empty concept' retail idea.  Way beyond the finesse of the Ducati brand itself is the contagious enthusiasm of the people engaged in the front line.  Loving it.
