Cauboyz created the Dream music video for French electro pop band Husbands by filming a wall of words that light up in time with the song's lyrics, as the additional "making of" movie reveals (bottom).

The lights were controlled by a large panel of switches. "The idea was to make something that we could play. We like doing it with our hands," the designers told Dezeen.

The lettering was designed to recall commercial neon signs and the typography found in old advertisements.

"We wanted to do something simple with a little bit of poetry," they added. "We like to see the lyrics like logos, as if the author wanted us to offer maxims."

Graphic designer Philippe Tytgat and photographer Bertrand Jamot met while at art school in Nancy and later founded Cauboyz as a vehicle for producing music videos.
