We asked everyone at the office to visualize their ultimate ice cream dream, and this is what we got. Yummy? On that note we conclude our work efforts for the first half of 2014. As of this afternoon we shut down our Macs, close the doors and splurge on ice cream until Monday July 28th. Until then, enjoy summer and make your ice cream dreams come true!

This weekend a bunch of good colleagues took a break from the city and checked into the McCann Worldgroup cottage at Hafjell. The mountain offered perfect conditions for both downhill and cross-country, as well as an open fireplace, burgers and late night laughs. Greetings from winter wonderland!
