Some new shots from the WeSC-shoot in Los Angeles just came in. I tried to keep one eye closed at all times. That’s the “reality”-eye. My “fantasy”-eye was opened the whole time. All these people are just super amazing. Tigra (from L’Trim, remember?) is cooler than all of us together. And this is the fantastic [...]
Such a beautiful Stockholm day!I even saw a bunch of horses and carriages from the taxi on my way to work! It got me so excited I decided to do an “outfit of the day”. (Shoes from Marc Jacobs, socks from H&M, Pants from 5th Avenue Shoe Repair, knitted top from Filippa K, trench from [...]
Lunch at Stureplan Café with Therese and one of my favorite contemporary artists, Daniel Jouseff. After six months of waiting and anticipation he finally had my painting ready. I love it! You won’t get to see it here on the blog. That wouldn’t do it justice. But I will have a special art show in [...]
Breakfast is covered already. A bunch of work was mixed up with a lunch with one of the best women in my life, Anna. Fantastic Anna. She works at OSM and spoke the following line over some Sushi: “But Johan, you’ve always been this way…”. I thought about it for a while and decided to [...]
I find it fab to round up the most talented people of the new generation every Tuesday for breakie and some chatting. So I do. And it’s great. Today we had breakfast at Berns. What works for late night sins should work for scrambled eggs, right? Why change a winning concept… And oh, guy on [...]
I made a new years resolution to use that line more often. Well – sort of anyway. What I mean is this: I think we should all be a bit quicker to the punch. Either do things or do not. I’m tired of maybes, preliminary appointment reservations, rain checks. They suck. I mean it in [...]
This is the latest weapon in my communications arsenal. The Ricoh GR II. Great fixed 28mm optics, fully controllable settings, RAW-format and extremely sturdy. Like a mini SLR, but very discreet. I’m in love. Who wants to buy my Nikon rig? (Ps. Click the pic above to check out mad build quality. Bet you can [...]
The Stockholm Fashion week is back! After spending the entire day working on the startup of a new web project, taking off to see Carin Wester’s creations beeing paraded on the catwalk was just perfect. A really good show in a packed Berns was accentuated by a particularly good men’s collection for once. Fun! From [...]
It’s been an interesting weekend. Friday night was kicked off in the recording studio, followed by fantastic oysters and Champange at Pontus and, not least, tunnbrödrulle and pucko at Tullfritt. Can’t beat that combo. From that the evening escalated with a party at the photographers agency Adamsky. “Everyone was there” is an accurate description. It [...]
Last night was a red carpet night. Rockbjörnen (a Swedish music awards show, for you foreign readers) was great. The show itself and the acts were perhaps not the worlds greatest, but the party was amazing, and the people. Thanks Hanna for taking me!
I spoke the other day about my AAIIDAA model: (A)nticipation(A)ttention(I)nterest(I)nvolvement(D)esire(A)ction(A)lignment Let’s talk for a second about the first one – (A)nticipation: What on earth is going on with the Forsman&Bodenfors-website? It’s been under construction for a gazillion years already. Talk about building expectations. Especially when reading the accompanying text. This better be good. Or rather, [...]
Oh, and by the way. Magnus is in town. He always makes me feel like I have to ditch my Nikon-setup for a Leica one. I believe he’s right. He is not good for me.
Somebody totally sprinkled the Espresso House-building with lights. Lights and some kind of animated lit up sign and, not least, a huge led screen. Wow. They turned Stureplan into Times Square. I’m not hostile to upgrades of the cityscape. Quite the opposite actually. I think the city should embrace the times in which she lives. [...]
I don’t know if you’ve tried out Flock – The Social Web Browser yet. I’m starting out just now (thanks for the tip, Calle from Superstrikers), so I’m not sure if I can recommend it or not but I guess if you’re reading this, at least the blog editor worked. Instinctively I’m skeptical about local [...]
Oh, contacts with built in display (via Zeus Jones). That’s cool. Moreover it solves a problem me and my brother discussed during a night time drive a couple of years ago. My brother Mikael has a particular interest in artificial intelligence and wrote his masters thesis for Volvo on the topic of making a car [...]
This might turn out to a bit of a long one, so go grab a cup of coffee first if you wish. Done? Ok, let’s go. The other day I was struck by a perspective that I’ve touched upon before. Text. The renaissance of the copywriter. In a world of quick laughs and flashy web, [...]
So – here are some news that you already new. This blog led me do this article that told me that we base our experience not only on our senses, but on our interpretation of what our senses have registred. Are you surprised? I hope not, because without our interpretational capabilities sound would only be [...]
Breaking news! Where to read about it first if not on my blog: From last monday I’m reciding in a new office on Kungsgatan. At a design agency, no less. So what happened? Did I get tired of advertising? Did I decide to kill my own agency Walter Naeslund? Well – no, and no. My [...]
This morning on the bus to work I was in a great mood. Sure, my sleep was messed up from jetlag and I only got about 4 hours in, but still, things felt good somehow. And suddenly I started noticing things. I looked around and saw blank stares, gloomy faces and people half asleep. Grey [...]
The perfect thing.Do I need it? Maybe. Do I NEED it? Definitely.Order placed.
