Fazer – Identity Works
Geisha Harmony is a new product family under the Geisha brand which was first launched in 1962. The sophisticated packaging with watercolour illustrations was designed by Senior Designer Karin af Malmborg from Identity Works. For this mouthwatering project we carried out the retouch work, production design and final artworks.
LOB design are renowned for producing home accessories and table top articles in the latest Scandinavian design so we were more than happy to help create their latest catalogue for this Autumn/Winter 2011. Petra Östh was the stylist for the main images.
In this digital age there is nothing that quite beats getting a personal letter through the post – unless of course it is a bill. This new and fun campaign for Posten was put together by Åkestam Holst’s AD Lars Holthe, PL Maria Ljung and designer Oscar Gardö. All you need is a computer and your voice – you do the talking, the computer does the writing and Posten delivers your letter.
Red. Raw. Fashion.
RedDevil prides itself in stocking the latest fashion garments, often inspired by London’s Carnaby Street. You’ll find the RedDevil stores in the centre of Stockholm and Gothenburg. RedDevil has been a welcome client to us for over 10 years and in this case, as the saying goes, “Better the Devil you know!”
Online shoppings best friend
Posten is one of the Nordic region’s largest operators in letter and parcel delivery services. With online shopping in Sweden increasing by over 10% in just the first half year of 2010, Posten launched a campaign to promote their extensive services within e-commerce. A series of ads were created by AD Olle Mattson och designer Jens Broman from Åkestam Holst and they were published repeatedly throughout the autumn in over 20 high profile swedish newspapers and magazines.
Funky home accessories
LOB design contacted us to photograph their entire funky range of home accessories. We even created a new design profile and produced their seasonal catalogues. We really found the fun in the funk for this project!

Milda – Bakerscape
This new packaging was designed by Creative Director Gail Baker. For this gourmet product we carried out the retouch work and then produced the final artworks.
We have been creating ads for the swedish wine importer Apricot for over five years now and their sales are continuing from strength to strength. Cheers to that! Or as we say here in Sweden ‘Skål!’ (pronounced ’skoal’).
Just imagine… a pony, a pig, a chick, a rabbit, a cat, a lamb, a budgie, a goat, two dogs, a hamster and a mouse… all hustling to get into our photo studio at the same time! AD Fredrik Östergren from Tempel came up with the idea for this campaign and we all had a lot of fun creating these images. The final 12 ads were published in motor magazines throughout the year.
The Golden Egg Awards

In collaboration with AD Jakob Swedenborg from Farfar, Bsmart was responsible for all the photography, final artworks and print surrounding the events advertising.
