Cases

The brief was to create awareness about Folkoperan within a younger audience by promoting the play the St Matthew Passion. In Folkoperan’s version of the play Jesus suffering has been replaced life stories of real people. So we took the main theme of the play and set it in a modern context that would be more relatable to a younger audience. Through the digital hub “Unshared” we encouraged people to post their own anonymous secrets in 140 characters. At the theatre the audience could write down their unshared secrets on a note and leave it in a box. After every show the box of secrets was posted on the hub, as well as on Folkoperan’s Twitter. To put the theme of the play in an even larger context we surveyed 1,000 people on what topics that are too taboo to share publicly. The results were presented to journalists and published on our website for those who wanted to learn more. 

In a digital age where there is endless inspiration for your home, how can IKEA continue to be the expert on life at home? IKEA takes DIY to the next level and introduces DIY data with The Life at Home Project: an initiative where data from people’s home lives in eight iconic cities are made accessible through an interactive gallery and a data hacking interface. The IKEA-developed Data Mixing Board allows you to generate own findings. The project was launched on IKEA’s Democratic Design Day in Älmhult, IKEA’s birthplace, and over 80 international journalists came. A global launch followed where journalists and nerds in key media segments were encouraged to assemble their own data. It turns out that DIY Data seems to be of interest to people all over the world. More than 150 000 000 read about it. Over 100 000 engaged on the digital hub. The project was called ”insanely detailed” by leading media, and even new product development suggestions inspired from the project were made by key journalist. Expert box: check.

In recent years, Scandic has made the biggest hotel renovation in Swedish history. Despite these efforts, many still see Scandic as a bit boring, with outdated rooms. Prime's mission was to develop an idea that would make more people become aware of the "New" Scandic and attract new audiences to the hotels. It was also to get new media target groups to cover the new innovations and interior changes. Together with Scandic, Prime developed a brand new hotel offering - Scandic To Go. Scandic To Go is the world's first mobile hotel room which guests can book their own dream location. The hotel room is fully equipped with all the comforts and modern furnishings as the newly renovated Scandic Hotels. With Scandic To Go as a communication engine we ran an integrated activation in both digital and traditional channels. Scandic To Go was a success. 

Democreativity

The brief was to promote Sweden as a creative country abroad through on one or more of its internationally successful creative industries. The objective of the campaign was to strengthen the image of Sweden abroad as a creative country in order to attract talent, tourism and investments. In 2011 Sweden was ranked as the world’s most creative country due to its high levels of talent, technology and tolerance. And tolerance, which was defined as openness and diversity, is where Sweden stands out the most. A small country as Sweden has always been dependent on adopting new ideas from the surrounding world, and it is even more important today in order to stay in the creative forefront.  Our strategy was to prove that being open to new perspectives and a diversity of ideas are crucial for creativity to flourish. So we launched the platform Democreativity.com, a collaborative tool designed to create ideas and build on others’, aimed to inspire creators all over the world.
