Honesty Now Selling Advertising and Coffee

Posted · Add Comment

Last week we received our first batch of Honesty Roast coffee, the first in our series of Honesty-products.

I have this space in the office where I thought it would be great with a big projector screen.

When I founded Honesty AB on Valentine’s Day 2009, I had just started on a brand new relationship with an amazing girl. It’s somewhat telling I guess that I am now, two years later, celebrating Valentines Day on my own with tacos and a movie. I don’t want to blame it on work, but there […]

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”.
