Electrolux – Prime PR
How do you explain what silence is? How do you capture silence visually? Together with Prime and Electrolux we’ve been working on how to portray the fact that their new generation of vacuum cleaners are extremely silent.
Firstly, we wanted to find the most illustrative way to instantly explain that the vacuum cleaner is silent. To achieve this we used the classic and iconic mute symbol in one image and in another image the vacuum cleaner is soundproofed with pillows – an image that will immediately create interest from viewers and editors.

Samsung – Great Works
This was one of our greatest challenges when it comes to great images. Guess how many shots it took to create this great masterpiece? There is a free lunch going for the winner! To Anna-Carin, Peter, Elin and Anna; Thanks for your great faith in Bsmart. And Ted, it was a great pleasure having lunch with you. Have a look at the live image here.
Did you know that in Sweden alone McDonald’s has a staggering 157.000.000 visitors each year? Is it due to their hotly debated images, or a universal taste or a competitive pricing that McDonald’s remains so popular? Indeed, the question is highly interesting. I would claim that the images in the highest degree help create hamburger success in Scandinavia. For we scandinavians like it sleek and stylish, simple and uncluttered. If we compare with the clothing fashion, the intensively retouched fashion images of clothing brands absolutely contribute to the fact that we buy their clothes. In our daily lives we use makeup and hair combs and we dress nicely when we are going out on the town. So what’s the Big Deal? We will continue to create appetising and colourful images. Even if we cheat, just a little. Because we know its how you like them!
In October 2002 we carried out our first job for McDonalds via their former agency Leo Burnett.
Peugeot – Volt
Long before Peugeot began producing cars Armand Peugeot produced his first cycle. It is therefore quite natural that Peugeot now sponsors the Swedish Bike Team – all the way to their goal. Learn more about cycling through the ages: www.peugeotcyklar.se
Rolex – Rob. Engström AB
Audi – Åkestam Holst
This 3D and retouch project was carried out for AD Fredrik Josefsson from Åkestam Holst. We designed and created three cross section platforms in 3D and retouched them together with some existing car images. The platforms illustrate the characteristics of the different car models.
Atlas Copco is a Swedish industrial company that was founded in 1873. It is a global leader in the manufacture of industrial tooling and equipment. For this particular job we packed up our equipment and left the studios behind. The studio for these images was a underground test mine, over 30 meters below a shopping centre. You could say that we created these tough images in a pretty tough environment.
Samsung NX – Spinn Action Marketing

Samsung xCover – Spinn
Wind, snow, rain or mud – who cares about the weather if you have the latest Samsung smartphone. It is built to resist anything, including water, dirt and dust. Markel Ahlenius from Spinn asked us to visualise this, and these images were the final result.
For their latest products, Skincode contacted us to make some creative visuals. A super powerful re-energising booster to revive skin and a defining gel to keep legs and body in perfect shape. After several drafts testing different techniques to match the two very different briefs we delivered these illustrative images to a very satisfied client.
Hold the future in your hands
It’s time to Tab and anytime is Tab time. These images are currently appearing as full size ads in all the national newspapers.
Mini – Jung von Matt
Together with Jung von Matt we helped finalise a very different kind of ad for Mini – exclusively for the swedish market. A newly purchased mini could now be delivered in person by the swedish actor Thorsten Flinck. Be careful though – the guy does not even have a driving licence! Press play and see how the final newspaper ad came together!
You can check out Thorsten Flinck as he takes over and actually directs the TV ad that he is about to star in himself. Enjoy!
SaveMyDay – Morris Pinewood
In order to reach the heights of our creativity (or to get the most bang for the buck as he puts it) Mattias Frodlund and Hanna Moe of Morris Pinewood came to us in the very early stages of the international launch of the new group buying site SaveMyDay.com, owned by Metro International.
