Vintage Posters

I love these vintage posters. They are fantastic.

Advertising Agency: Moma, Sao Paulo, Brazil
IKEA, once again succeeding. I love the part where the skateboarders skate above the kitchen cabinets.

Polar Bears!

It's not a big deal, I just like the use of simplicity. In all areas of use. Simplicity just gets to me. Take a look at this Toronto Zoo spot. It is just plain simple.

Dislike Post

I rarely post stuff on here that I'm NOT very impressed by but this Mariah Carey site just makes me a little annoyed.

ClickFire Media has partnered with Elizabeth Arden to launch an interactive website featuring augmented reality (AR) for the introduction of Mariah Carey's Lollipop Bling candy-inspired fragrance collection. The heart of the website, which includes Away3D Flash components, is a rotating 3D bank of stylized, candy-themed skyscrapers which were inspired by the singer's New York City hometown skyline, and evocative of a set design for one of Mariah's iconic videos.

However. It is tacky. I'm sorry but, using 3D is nice, and the rotation of the buildings are nice. But it just leaves me with nothing?
It just makes me sad because this is Digital Media being used really badly.
Technically, cool.
Interface, sucks.
Mariah Carey style, sucks.

What do you guys think?

Blacksmiths Surprise!

Me and Theo felt like The Blacksmiths could use a little surprise so we arranged one!
We ordered engraved business-card holders and surprised them this morning. They all bursted into big smiles. It was a beautiful sight. It is monday. It feels like this week is going to be great. I feel great. Let's go people!

Hello Brooklyn!

This is a wonderful typography based music video made by Greg Solenström, a previous Hyper Island student. The clip is just fantastic, and if you like it, make sure you watch the "making of" as well!

You ever wonder where the planes are going?

If you have nothing else better to do with your time, why not go plane hunting with the Plane Finder AR app which allows you to use augmented reality (AR) to search the skies for planes and get details such as flight number, speed, destination and other strange details of overhead planes. If you take a gander at the picture above, you'll see the AR information displayed in a fancy manner when aimed at planes. This app works by picking up the ADS-B data from the planes, meaning that not every plane that you point your iPhone at will have its information displayed.

New York New York

I am very happy, honoured and excited to say that I will be interning as a producer at Your Majesty in New York in November.
It feels great and I really look forward to this wonderful journey I'm about to start.

Your Majesty is a creative agency driven and founded by a former Hyper Island student, Jens Karlsson. I am very happy to have been given this chance and I will most definetly give and contribute with everything I have and hope that they will be pleased with what I can bring to the round table.

From November on, I will become a knight.

Viral Viral Viral!

The Viral Factory created this flashmob/viral/i-don't-know-what it's-called campaign for Samsung Galaxy and it just leaves you thinking: How did they do this? It's funny, and definitely something that will spread. Viral!
(However, I must admit that those last seconds where the pay-off comes, the design could really look better)

Package Design

I rarely post things on packaging design. But this is surely when it's at it it's best!


Theo Stråhlén just sent me a date request by creating a website. Too cute. Making someone else feel something only through the digital world makes everything so worth it. Not only this wonderful date page, but anything in marketing and advertising. We have to make people feel. Once they feel, they will be receptive.

Go ahead and try my date-site out! It's papervision so it's more than just a plain page. It actually moves!

How many friends do you know?

Here is a site called "How many friends do you know", where you are tested to show how many of your Facebook "friends" you actually know. I like the art direction and animations, but I really love the smart questioning of our "virtual" life. Enjoy!

Call Phones from Gmail!

Gmail voice and video chat makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family using your computer’s microphone and speakers. But until now, this required both people to be at their computers, signed into Gmail at the same time. Given that most of us don’t spend all day in front of our computers, we thought, “wouldn’t it be nice if you could call people directly on their phones?”

Starting today, you can call any phone right from Gmail.

A social wintersport App has been created for the Vail Resorts. The EpicMix is basically RFID chips in your lifcard and allows you to keep track of every epic moment you have on the mountains. Watch the video for more information on this super cool service. It's well done, informative and nice looking.
