SBSeating – A plus M
We were entrusted by the agency A plus M to photograph some chairs, both in the studio and on location. The client SBSeating, along with the brands HÅG and RH, are well known for their distinctive chairs so we also filmed an instructional video to show the specific core functions of the chair. To be as effective as possible for the client, we gathered all the necessary resources within our studios so that we could both film and photograph on the same day!
Stockholm Globe Arenas – PS Communication
Here are a few of the images we created together with Roséspecialisten that have now been published in their book ‘All you need 2013′ which celebrates their range of wines including Cuvée Madame. You can order the book here.
Bold Stockholm design agency has a pretty impressive client list and what could be a better way to illustrate this than these images that we created for them.

IQ – Forsman & Bodenfors
This may look like a traditional summer advertisement for rosé wine but the real written message from IQ is to drink less and to take care of yourself. With that in mind have a great summer!
Volt – Friskis&Svettis
Ad Jörgen Berglund and designer Åsa Stjärnquist from Volt came to us with this project for their brand new client, the Swedish sports association Friskis&Svettis (Healthy&Sweaty). Many elements needed to be retouched together to create the illusion of hand written text on steamed up windows.
Folkoperan – Lowe Brindfors
AD Lina Brunzell from Lowe Brindfors contacted us for this pretty unusual model shoot for the promotion of the 2012 opera premiere ‘Cleopatra meets Julius Caesar’. Cleopatra is portrayed as a ‘rather loose woman’ in the eyes of Caesar, although in a very positive way according to the AD. The idea was born for a classical singing ‘blow up doll’ in a Cleopatra wig.
Apotek Hjärtat – Åkestam Holst
Green tea and coffee, mustard for the ham, peppermint and chocolate for the sweets and saffran for the buns. And don’t forget the spices for the malt wine. Mmm… what more could anyone want for these cosy swedish evenings leading up to Christmas.
Colourful images for a colourful shopping mall
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!
New images to relaunch successful ad campaign
As most things in life, two is better than one and that was the driving force behind this highly visual campaign by Fredrik Josefsson, AD at Åkestam Holst. The theme for the campaign was ‘A cup of coffee is seldom alone’ and together with Fredrik we created these twisty, twirly images using a whole mixture of our talents including photo, 3D and retouch. It gave us a lot of enjoyment making these lively and playful images and we hope you like them too – or should we say two.
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.
Products in harmony
Swissline is a swiss born company providing anti-aging products.The debrief from Swissline’s AD Lara Wyss was to find a creative solution that would reflect the qualities of the specific products. Our 3D artists, retouch artists and photographers sat down to brainstorm some ideas. Some were a little too modern and some were a little too advanced. The final idea and image though was a great success and resulted in an extremely satisfied client.
Is this one of our 3D state-of-the-art splashes you may ask yourself? Nope, not this time. In fact its a mixture of photographed splashes retouched together to create this final image which reflects the precision, purity and quality that are synonymous with Switzerland and the Skincode brand.
Front page news!
There was a very nice surprise waiting for us in the inbox this morning. One of our images is covering the front page of the Weekend Journal of The Wall Street Journal. This gives us a great reason to celebrate (as if we need one). So Kalle Gadd (Art Director at Razorfish), when you read this, come on over and join us for some champagne. Cheers!
Make room for summer
These colourful images were created for IKEA’s little summer catalogue for the traditional little swedish summer house. It was certainly one of the smallest IKEA catalogues we have ever seen – just 88 x 104 millimetres.
The perfect couple
The brief from Johan Jäger at Jung von Matt was to create an image that embodied the concept of a perfect couple for their client Miele. The idea was born for a washing machine and a tumble dryer holding hands together. Research and various tests were initially carried out to perfect the design of the robotic arms. The two products were then photographed separately and the arms were created in 3D. As always lighting was absolutely essential, and in order to create a perfect match between the photographic studio and the 3D studio, a panoramic shot was created on the set and then transferred into the 3D program. The result – meet Mrs and Mrs Wash’n'tumble.
Oh Thank Heaven! (for slushies!)
How can you resist these deliciously refreshing, vibrant little slushies? Newly dispensed and glistening with ice cold droplets. Similarly, pearls of perspiration were appearing on the brows of our retouch artists as they raced against the clock on this project to deliver these colourful images right on time to AD Lova Bratt at Peacock.
Historical vacuum cleaners
When did you last go to a historical museum to see a modern vacuum cleaner? Well, head off to the Sjöhistoriska (Historical Maritime) Museum in Stockholm and take a look. The exhibition is all about the plastic waste that ends up polluting the seas. Shame on us all! But congratulations to the creatives at Prime and Electrolux. Well done!

SL (Stockholm Public Transport) is the organisation running all of the land based public transport systems in Stockholm. This was very much a hands on project with a lot of people involved so a big thank you to Eva Håkanson Tell, Fredrik Svalstedt, Gustav Egerstedt, Maria Lindskog Klasén and Yasmin Larsson who painstakingly built the birds nest.
3D or not 3D?
That is the question. Bas Brand Identity created a design for Garants new coffee series and from their artworks we visualised and styled this image according to a sketch from Olle Olssons at Clara Reklambyrå. Finding a coffee plant in the middle of a swedish winter in is not the easiest thing but as always we rose to the challenge and the coffee plant has now found itself a new home in our kitchen. So come on by and try some of the coffee (or even a cup of tea). You can even let us know that you knew what part of the image was 3D… because you did know that… right?
