We’ve just made a campaign to help Candyking launch Plopp, Gott & Blandat and Banana Skids in their pick and mix range. Since they’re all classic originals we thought it made sense to advertise with original artwork. So we asked three Swedish artists to interpret the new products in their own way. The result is now up on the streets for everyone to enjoy. Have a look at www.karamellkungen.se/original/. Pretty sweet, don’t you think?

This years nominations and shortlists for the Lovie Awards has been announced, and we’re happy to announce that the sites behind five of those nominations and seven shortlists are made by yours truly. The nominees and winners are selected by a jury, but the “People’s Choice” winners are decided by a public vote, so please spend one minute of your idle time to boost our chances and help us beat Google (among others). You’ll find our entries here:
If you’ve had a hard time reaching us on the phone lately, it’s because we’ve been stuck in a nuclear reactor. Nope, that’s not a lame excuse. We’ve been working with Universal Music Creative Labs to launch Avicii’s new album. We’ve built a huge cube with a black glass front, rigged up a stack of massive speakers around it and placed it in an old nuclear reactor at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve just launched an Astrid Lindgren app on Spotify, on behalf of Universal Music Creative Labs. That means you can now listen to your favourite tunes from Pippi Longstocking, Emil of Lönneberga and all the other movies based on her stories. You can also listen to Astrid reading bits of her books with that wonderful voice of hers. So gather your kids, pump up the volume and sing along with robbers, pirates and horse lifting girls.
(If you don’t know who Astrid is, she’s Sweden’s most loved author of all times (at least among children (and we’ve all been children))).
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.)
