In the Tuesday morning newspaper I stumbled upon this drawing made by a 10 year old girl named Tilda: It shows what she thinks the new 200 kronor bill should look like. Basically she thinks there are too few dragons on bills and she wants one. First I fell in love with the idea and […]
If you’ve followed this blog for a while you know that I’ve written a bit about different project management systems. I’ve always loved Manymoon, though I’ve felt that the GUI is a bit too complicated compared to Basecamp and that this was the reason Manymoon never took hold in our organization and was pushed out […]
Hey dear readers! Working hard and not writing much right now as you may have noticed. But periods like this one are always stuffed with new experiences that you learn a ton from. Here’s my top-5 hotlist right now of thoughts in my head: Being concrete will always beat being abstract and fluffy. Especially if […]
We’ve been working with Halebop for few months now and over time quite a few people have asked me about the diversity in the communication, especially when it comes to the films. “They keep changing all the time, so how do you phrase the actual concept?” has been a common question. My answer is “does […]
Speaking of helmets, try this one on for size. Oh, how I love passionate people who actually do things.
Kid Chameleon Intro from Phoenix 01/06/11 from Matt Loniero on Vimeo. Call me a nerd, but Kid Chameleon’s Mac-head helmet, made from an old Mac, a motorcycle helmet and an iPad, is one of the coolest and most ingenious art pieces I’ve seen in a while. It’s one of those ideas that I wish I […]
On Valentine’s Day 2009, Saturday February 14 at 17:01, I sent out the following tweet to the world: “I’ve now left the agency (VML). Very exciting things in the making”. The agency was Verymuchlogo McCann, and next month this tweet is will be exactly 2 years old. If you look at the timeline of Honesty […]
My brother Mikael also left another (and more off topic) comment on my app store post that I think deserves to be a post in its own right. Enjoy: Please zoom in (click to zoom) and take a look at the Spectrum keyboard, and the brilliance of Sir Clive Sinclair. All the commands and keywords […]
Let’s say I run an advertising agency (Oh I do? Whaddayaknow!) and have 10 people who need to run Adobe Creative Suite. I would love it if there was a distinct identity that I could assign that license to (or revoke one from), an identity which people would be reluctant to share with anyone else, […]
I just had a brief discussion with my brother about the Mac app store post I wrote the other day. Being the mega techie of the family, he has been a heavy Linux-user for a long time, and these were his comments: A system similar to the app store has been around in the Linux […]
The Mac App store just hit us like a bolt of lightning and even though I knew it was coming, seeing it in reality still surprised me and reinforced even further my religious belief in what I call The Number One Rule of Business. To explain I’ll take this opportunity to share something from my […]
So I finally got my first day off from work in what feels like a lifetime. It also feels like a blink of an eye. So amazingly much has happened this year, and at the same time, I have never had a year pass this quickly on me before. I’m sitting here at one of […]
At Honesty we have a model that we work with when developing communications solutions for our clients (and for ourselves). This is what the model looks like: I will not talk about the entire model right now, but at the core we have what we call “The Communicative Truth”. It’s basically something that is true […]
Next week I have two talks booked (on the same day and in two different cities of course, #planningfail). One of them is for 600 or so entrepreneurs in Gothenburg at the Venture Cup awards show, and the other is for 150-ish marketing execs at the IDG breakfast seminars. Big audiences are always a kick […]
I know this is nerd-mania, but you have to agree that the MacBook Air 11″ with the iPad as an extra display is a pretty royal setup! Check out the Air Display app from Avatron Software and try it out for yourself. Good to know is that it has a bit of lag because it’s […]
Fashion’s got a new face, and it’s Mike! Check it out and be inspired for Christmas! (Yeah yeah, I know it’s in Swedish, but you can still enjoy the styles.
Last friday we rolled out the the first christmas film for Halebop. After the first film with Baba, the dancing boy throwing a Halebop gang sign, Baba became an instant Halebop hero and in this new film he plays super serious drums over a super naive song about “Surfing in california”. My personal favorite. Check […]
Wow. Online grocery shopping is the hottest business there is in Sweden right now, and our super talented art director just won the prize for online grocery shop of the year in Sweden. Probably means she’s… well… the shit. Congrats Anna!
Emil asked me if it’s true that you get your Reinstall “DVD” on a USB stick on the MacBook Air. “I don’t know” I said. “I don’t think so, haven’t checked”. So I went home and checked, and sure enough, there is was. Cool. If there is one thing that Apple understands, it’s that the […]
I have this illness where I can’t seem resist the pressure of my buying reflex when Apple releases new products. Let alone when they release entirely new categories of products. And this is in fact what the MacBook Air 11″ is. Hence I went down to my Mac-dealer yesterday and picked up my own copy […]
