The day our canteen serves yellow lunch, is a sure sign that Easter is coming closer. So today we work as hard as ants to make deadlines before we close the office and escape into Easter moods and activities. We wish you all a happy and well deserved time off, and greet you back on Tuesday April 22.
The art of untangling knots
We are now in the process of recruiting participants for our Trippel initiative, a collaboration between SDG and GreenNudge. The ambition is to untangle the major societal knots of our time, this time focused on reducing food waste. In order to succeed, non-competing actors representing the whole value chain will come together, in a co-creation process facilitated by SDG. This is a challenge we are really looking forward to take on - stay tuned for news as we untangle.
We welcome home our designers that have been breathing the London air the last couple of days. The purpose was AGI Open, Alliance Graphique Internationale, - featuring over 30 of the world's leading graphic designers. This year’s theme was dialogue, with the intention to open up the design process through interviews, debates and case presentations. Speakers like Chip Kidd, Christoph Niemann, Stefan Sagmeister and Margaret Calvert made sure the London travellers came back both inspired and pumped. Check out our photo album here.
How often do you get the opportunity to work with a Ukrainian company, looking for a Scandinavian touch to their identity? Exactly. So this was quite a unique project opportunity we had to grab. Roar, Tobias and Hilde just came back from another trip to Kiev, bringing with them these golden photographic memories.
Peek into the future
This morning we had the pleasure of having a visit from Lars Raaum - Audience and Product Developer at Aftenposten. We kicked off the week with some interesting discussions about the future of the media industry, and are now digesting the fresh input. The verdict? We say bring it on and let the future media games begin!
And that was it for lazy summer days! Our creative batteries are fully charged and our doors are open. In other words, the timing is just right to start fresh and to embark on new projects. The coming weeks feature travels, project kick offs and the revival of old acquaintances - all of which you will hear more about!
Happy Summer Holiday!
To reload our creative minds we will close the office between the 7th and 28th of July. Some will be off to enjoy the Norwegian coast, relax on the Danish countryside, explore the streets of Miami, tame the surf board outside Tarifa while others will be just plain lazy in Malaysia. See you fresh and inspired at the end of the month.
Last night we celebrated ourselves and each other with a great summer party. The festivities took place in the backyard at MESH - Norway's first gathering place for challenge, change and innovation. We shared great stories from the past, made new ones and dreamed of stories to come. And then there was dancing... Thanks MESH!
