Enchanted by the tales of an incredible luminous seaweed, Fox embarks on an expedition to the depths of the deep blue sea. With the help of his cousin Wolf, the equipment needed for his daring dive are mapped and planned; a task which shines a light on the importance of friendship to solve problems and challenges. With flippers on, an oxygen cylinder filled, and an underwater camera in hand, Fox takes the plunge. His mission to find the mysterious submerged plant takes many twists and turns; encountering giant algae, a city of coral, and a whale trapped in a fishing net, with a final discovery that promotes the message: Together we are stronger.

Today, weed is en vogue and has evolved into a good-looking business. High on Design showcases the new brands, designs and creators behind this revolution. While cannabis is a recreational drug still strongly associated with Western subculture, it has recently become a huge industry. Over the past few years, consuming the herb and using its derivatives have become legal in several countries, and a wave of entrepreneurs has come through, looking to generate and bank on a new generation of consumers. Through insightful texts, High on Design reflects on the novel aesthetics, people, and trends of contemporary cannabis culture, and provides a wider view of the phenomenon. Addiction, crime, science, the marketing of weed as a booster of creativity and a medical aid, and the use of hemp in clothing are all considered.
