Yes, it’s worth three exclamation marks. After a double nomination in Webby Awards, our site for Coloud got picked as the winner in Consumer Electronics. That’s the second year in a row we win the same category! If you see anyone from Oakwood out on the town this weekend, make sure to give the high five. (Psst! If you don’t know what the Webby Awards is, it’s pretty much for web sites what The Oscars is for film.)
We’re happy to announce that we have four new faces popping in to the office every morning to raise our level of awesomeness.
The good news is: We’re nominated in this years Webby Awards. Twice, with the sites for Coloud and Marshall Headphones. The bad news is: both nominations are in the same category, Consumer Electronics. And only one can win.
Well, with two out of five nominations and double honors, we’re not exactly crying. We’re pretty darn happy and proud actually. And there’s even more good news: there’s also a People’s Voice Award. So if you’ve got nothing better to do, why don’t you go to http://pv.webbyawards.com/
We also got an honoree for Marshall Headphones in the “Shopping” category and an honoree for Coloud in “Interactive Advertising & Media > Consumer Electronics & Services”. All winners are available here.
When me and Tomas bought the Makey Makey in it’s early stages at Kickstarter, we had only one thing in mind: go bananas. When it was finally delivered months later, we decided to make something to show everyone here in the studio the potential of such tool and inspire fun side projects… Combining Monsieur Elg’s passion for French food and my will to explore the boundaries of music making, we created Eating Sound & Touching Music, a kind of crazy collective-interactive-musical-experiment.
During one week in September 2012 we engaged the commuters of Stockholm to participate in an interactive installation down at the metro station of Fridhemsplan. The installation was the starting point of a larger communication project for Trafiksatsning Stockholm that aims to create awareness about the movement in the city and why infrastructure improvements are necessary.
This position has been filled.
