It’s been a busy spring filled with new projects. Ads, packaging, brand building, strategy and much more, some of the projects you see down below. But now it’s time for some well deserved rest to enjoy the great Swedish Summer (hopefully). Have a nice one and see you in august.
More space in your life, more life in your space.
If you read Kinfolk, Elle Deco, Arkitektur, Milk Decoration or perhaps turned the pages in flight magazines – you may have seen our latest ads for string. If not, here they are.
Recycle the summer
This summer you’ll find two bigger and more lush fresh herbs; mint and basil from Svegro in the food stores. If you re-plant them, they continue to grow and last the whole summer. The mint can even reappear the next spring. And if you take seeds from the basil, you can use these to plant next year. The bag itself will also help you with the re-growth. Just put it in the compost.

Maybe we’ll hatch a Columbi Egg.
Together with our client Parmaco we are nominated in Dagens Samhälles Ad Award Columbi Egg with the campaign ”Parmacoskolan”. A series of lessons aimed to teach educational decision makers on the subject: Dynamic Buildings.
There are many perceptions around rental school buildings, most of them are incorrect. We wanted to change that. So we did like we do at school: Educate people about it. Dividing all the facts in shorter lessons on different subjects like: Durability, Economics, Expansion, Dynamics, Growth and more.
It’s the second time Parmaco & Öppet are nominated and the previous campaign got a diploma. The latest campaign has helped increase brand awareness dramatically and Parmaco doubled their turnover in 2017.
This friday (the 23/3), we will now if we win the Columbi Egg 2017, or proudly walk away with ”only” a diploma.
Emelie, wins Ung Svensk Form
We are happy to announce that Emelie was awarded in Ung Svensk Form (Young Swedish Design) for her project Maybeday. It’s not just a well designed kit in every detail. It’s also an important tool for expecting parents. It’s not the usual kit with diapers for the baby, pacifiers and clothes. Instead it’s a safety kit for a situation where there is no other option than to give birth outdoor or in the car. The kit has everything you need to make a safe and secure delivery: blankets, seat covers, gloves – and of course all the Information you need in case of an emergency birth – step by step.
The idea was developed in close cooperation with Gudrun Abascal, certified midwife and an author .
The jurys motivation: “The design object that no one would wish for, but that sheds light on a burning social problem. After all, design is also about highlighting important issues – and this project addresses the human consequences of increased efficiency and job cuts in labour and delivery care. It is impressively informative.”
– I needed to do something, says Emelie Kasholm. I can’t change the way government prioritize healthcare and safe childbirths, but I can at least make them a priority. This is not a solution to the bigger problem. But it could help both in real emergencies and as a security arrangement during pregnancy.
Say Hi to Eleonora. She’s started at Öppet last spring, and she has reinforce our design department with her skill and lovely spirit. We are very happy that have Eleonora on the team.
Hi Eleonora, who are you?
– I’m a graphic designer. I have worked in the business for several years and I got my education at Beckman School of Design.
I have a dog who thinks he is a big dog, but trapped in a small dog’s body. His name is Atlas. I am addicted to Yoga. I guess if you should have any addiction all, Yoga is a good choice.
How are you?
Fine, thank you.
What clients/projects/brands/stuff have you worked on – to name a few:
Arlanda Express, Artbreak (JC Decaux),Ittala, ccap (the book “Trådbyggen från utsidan i parallell vändning”)
Bavarian Dairy Giant picked a small Swedish Agency. Insta success.
A year ago Ehrmann, an international family owned dairy with roots in Bavaria, Germany picked ÖPPET as their agency for an interesting project. Launching a new Protein pudding on the Swedish Market.
With fun, joyful postings under the conceptual idea ”The right attitude” and practically no media budget at all, we have grown Ehrmann’s Swedish Instagram following from zero followers to 7 400. No 1 among all 50 countries where Ehrmann operates. Sales volumes are also a success.
