  1. 1. A long time ago, I was a cabinet maker. Then I discovered advertising and design, and now I have been an account guy at ad agencies for almost two decades. I love my work, and it has been very good to me. I have had the chance to work across different countries, with incredibly talented people, and on many great projects. The thing that keeps fascinating me about advertising and design, is that it is a mirror of what we do every day just living our lives – we take things in, try to understand them, and communicate what we have seen. Ultimately, this work is all about creating deeper relationships. Functionally, there is no difference between a disposable plastic pen and the Montblanc fountain pen my grandmother gave me. And yet, I have a completely different relationship with the fountain pen. I care about it, I’ll have it repaired when it’s broken, and love writing with it. When we care about the things we surround ourselves with, we add richness to our lives. To give people a reason to care about a plastic pen, to infuse a brand with emotion, is what I enjoy doing every day I come to work.

  11. 11. Avenue A/Razorfish; Portland, Oregon – Xbox Packaging Packaging graphics we developed for the Xbox gaming console were quickly embraced by Microsoft and their partners world wide, to a point where their use superseded core brand elements. To manage this development, Xbox asked us to create a new identity system that would guide the use of all graphic elements. Once the new id system was established, we created a series of integrated launch communications. Xbox soon established itself as a serious player against the dominant brand in a highly competitive category.

  31. 31. Hallstedt & Hvid; Stockholm, Sweden – Cloetta Kexchoklad Advertising Arguably Sweden’s most traditional chocolate bar, Kexchoklad had lost marketshare to strong new players. Working with a hand picked team of international creatives, we were able to bring the wealth of positive brand associations back to life in an unexpected way. Kexchoklad grew 43% the first year of re-launch and was elected the most popular Swedish brand amongst teenagers.

After one of the boats won the race, the EF yachts were featured in an 18-page documentary in National Geographic.

  38. 38. Wieden + Kennedy; Portland, Oregon – Nike International Advertising Development of the Nike brand in more than 30 markets across Europe, Asia and South America. Advertising something as personal as sports wear in such diverse regions requires an acute understanding of subtle cultural differences and their impact on people’s feelings about themselves and their physicality.
