Winter Wonderland

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!

Work in progress

Term ends

This autumn has seen another class at Volda University College finishing the course Strategic Design. In this years course the students worked in teams of Norwegian and foreign students to develop a concept for a mountain sports festival. The curriculum of the course is a mix of  design method, cultural theory and business strategy. SDG has been giving lectures and giving the students feedback on their progress throughout the autumn. Last week we were up for censoring the final, individual exams. Hearing the students argue confidently about their target group choices with Bordiueu and service design methodology is very inspiring. We're looking forward to meet next year's class.

A new motor tongue

Winter is here and Norges Automobil-forbund (NAF) is helping Norwegian car owners to keep their vehicle fit and ready. And now the car speaks up. NAF wanted to include its members in the making of the future service, so through February 2014, they're piloting a beta version for selected users. The car sends you notifications when it needs to be washed due to salty roads or bad weather, and it requests you take care of the battery, windshield wipers and tires. A happy car makes a happy driver and keeps the traffic safer. What’s not to like about cars finally speaking their voice?
