Sol Beer
Searching for Local Heroes

Searching for Local Heroes

Sol beer is about ‘Espiritu Libre’ – free spirits, who follow their hearts and inspire others to do the same. The global Sol Local Heroes campaign celebrates these people by telling their stories around the world. We gave the concept a Finnish twist by turning the search into a documentary – finding four unique stories: Pauli Hakala, the country’s first custom surfboard maker, Outi Pyy, a ‘trashionista’ specializing in recycled fashion, Tebian, an artist capable of producing just about anything, and Street Gastro, the two guys who kick-started an urban street food revolution. The films are directed by Sam Shingler.

Royal Cargo
Beer + Cider = Cargo

Beer + Cider = Cargo

To answer the thirst young adults have for new experiences, we and our client Hartwall decided to serve them a totally unexpected drink. It was co-created together with Finnish youth, who we asked to taste a lot of different new drinks, and share their opinions on them. Eventually we landed on something to get excited about: Royal Cargo – a beer mix that combines beer and apple cider to create a whole new drink category. Next we did the branding, packaging design and launch campaign on social media.

Cancer Society of Finland
Under The Sun

Under The Sun

95% of skin cancer cases could be avoided with proper protection. The Cancer Society of Finland wanted to remind employers of protecting summer workers from direct sunlight. We brought together a top class animations team, an award-winning director, and a Finnish-Canadian wrestling hero for the voiceover – and as the cherry on top we added blazing guitars to the soundtrack. The result: a health awareness video for the mobile generation.

Let the music do the talking

Let the music do the talking

The hosts of a popular Radio Aalto morning show cruise around the Helsinki metropolitan area on their way to work and literally let the music do the talking with classic pop song one-liners. Few articles from international medias:

The North Star

The North Star

Together with Hartwall we have given a revamp for an iconic premium lager beer from Finland, Lapin Kulta. We wanted to be true to the roots of the brand but give it a new clean contemporary feel. The new Lapin Kulta is a modern, fresh lager that moves fearlessly forward. A bright new red North Star is the beacon of this change.

Caruna
Visual identity

Visual identity

When Fortum sold its electricity distribution business, the new company, Caruna, became Finland’s biggest electricity distributor. People tend to think about electricity only when something has gone wrong. The convention of the business makes it easy to be critical to distributors, because they tend to look like faceless corporations. We set Caruna apart from them, and brought the company closer to people by focusing on the positive things electricity enables in our lives. Visually the electricity comes to life as positive energy that flows through all Caruna materials as colourful plusses and minuses. Through all that it does, Caruna brings Finland a dose of positive energy.

Milk from Finland

Milk from Finland

When our client Arla started selling exclusively local milk in Finland, it renewed its entire milk packaging line in the country. We took the task of designing the new packaging to reflect the new approach and the milk’s origins. The end results is a concept based on water-coloured illustrations that make the packages instantly recognizable – the packages are livened up with seasonal details. Each product type has its own motif to ease consumer navigation. Stripes indicate basic milks, balls point out low-lactose products whereas waves mean non-lactose. Bacteria-boosted soured milks are signposted with triangles.

Heritage Label cheeses

Heritage Label cheeses

Blast from the past. The cheesemaking heritage of some of Arla’s local cheese makers goes back to ancient times. We helped Arla dramatize the fact their cheeses have been the most wanted around since years back – Cheddar since 1170 and Bargkäse since 1840. We went back to the roots and brought traditional cheeses back to 2014, repackaging them and making these films and print ads to launch the Heritage Label to today’s cheeselovers.

Younited is a new content cloud and collaboration tool created by our long-time client F-Secure. We helped F-Secure to come up with the name, brand identity and the tone of voice. The launch film is directed by Aleksi Koskinen.

The Board and Tissue Experience

The Board and Tissue Experience

Paper manufacturers need chemistry to make the kind of cardboard and tissue their customers want. To bring to life the expertise and solutions global chemicals company Kemira provides, we decided to show what happens in the process from the start of making board to the final product. The Kemira Board Experience and The Tissue Experience are a zoom-outs that start with a microscopic view showing chemicals influencing molecules. From there the story expands until we see the final product at the factory.

Launch of Radio Loop

Launch of Radio Loop

We were asked by Nelonen Media to design and launch a new radio station aimed at a young, social media -savvy audience. To introduce a radio for the digital age, we build the station’s identity around a medium familiar to the target group: animated GIF loops. With a hint of irony towards the ‘mainstream hits’ concept, it was also aptly named ‘Loop’. In the launch campaign for the radio was an internet audio stream gif.loop.fi – a site illustrated with over 70 three-second looped animations. The listeners could pitch in by adding their own GIFs. These “loops” can also be synced to the beat using a trackpad or a touchscreen.

Faces of Public Transportation

Faces of Public Transportation

Public Transportation in Helsinki was about to reach the mark of one million riders. We, together with Helsinki Regional Transport Authority (HSL) invited the Finnish photographer Lauri Eriksson to combine a brand advertising campaign, a community event and a cultural project by shooting an exhibition with the title ‘Faces of Public Transportation’. The campaign was widely quoted in the press and even made the evening news. Everyone photographed will be invited to the opening of the physical exhibition later in Janury 2014. Watch MTV3 newsreport about the campaign.
