We Won!

[GTranslate]

Coca-Cola went to Hyper Island and promoted a Hackaton for three days.

The Hackaton was published on the swedish media here and here, as well as on the Coca-Cola website.

The whole Hyper Island was assembled and the programs were mixed. In total we were 42 groups with up to 04 participants.
In the end, some groups had more than one “Motion” person, but my little group did not, but we made it anyway!
We where group number 18: Zac Rolz, Digby Baer and Joana Öberg.

I’ve never been to a Hackaton before. It was three very intense days, but I loved it!
The funny thing is that our idea was nailed already in the beginning of the second day. We knew it was a strong and creative idea!

When we presented the idea to the client we got a feedback that sounded GREAT in our ears, and I think that I will never forget!
she said: “.. I think you connected all the dots…
One of my group colleagues (I won´t say who) said he would tatoo those words :)

On December 02nd My group and other 13 headed to Coca-Cola headquarters in Stockholm to pitch the idea to the board. I was very nervous. I thought we would be presenting to four or five persons, but behind that red wall there were about 25 new faces.
We made our presentation, not flawless, but we had at least made them laugh in the end. We had a good lunch at Coke and left with a good feeling.

But Now I received an email telling that we are Number One!

I am sooooo happy. We sort of knew it, but you know, the other guys were also really good, but yeah!
I just want to laugh!
Coke Loves us!!! They want to meet us again and we will finally have a tour inside their factory and finally discover WHAT IS INSIDE THAT BOTTLE hahaha :)

About our Idea

I cannot tell you WHAT our amazing idea was yet, but as soon as we get the green light from Coca-Cola I will publish it here!

First Real World Big Client!

[GTranslate]

This was a really cool experience!

Skype asked our help to make their asynchronous communication more personal and user friendly. We spent five weeks on this project, We researched, downloaded hundreds of Instant Messahging apps, and in the end we (Alexander Tengner ,  Jonas Halfter, Mikaela Saletti,  Anders Hellstörm and Lars Svennbeck) did not come up with only one  but three great ideas to present to our client:

#1.  Secret idea

Skype is actually patenting our idea, so that´s why we unfortunately cannot comment it right now.

 

The only thing I can say is that, if developed it will revolutionize the way people communicates via chart. Wait and see!

Now… THIS was REALLY cool, right!?

 

#2. Skype chat

In Skype Chat I contributed with the Concept and Prototyping.

In Skype Grid I contributed in the Ideation.

 

Look at us, completely exausted, smelly (we were in a island in Stockholm’s archipelago for three days; there was not enough heat or warm water, but we enjoyed every moment!

And it was definetly worth it! Would do it again.
