The Great Debate On

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

The Project
DEBATE ON

The Challenge
To redesign the debate format to be entertaining and informative at the same time

Dandileia logotypeWe think the people of the world are in great need for debate. And not just two people altering to act out their prewritten arguments from the prompter, or freaky people yelling before throwing set-decor. That why Tomas Seo, Christina Jeuring and Henrik Ahlén took on to redesign the debate format.

Designing is not only about looks, today it’s more of how to predict interaction of people and how to build successful platforms for engaging meetings to take place. The first debates were a huge success and the next will soon follow.

And, yes Mr Seo also designed the project logotype and did some wordpress-theme customizing.

Font inspired by Paris Hilton

Dandileia logotypeFrom the fascination of Paris Hilton’s ability to keep her handwriting naive in an adult age came the inspiration to design a new script font: Paris Xoxo Script. Paris doesn’t come in regular so the font is Light and Bold only. So for all of you that always wished that you could be more like Paris here is your chance.

Paris is of course free (as in beer) both for distribution and for non commercial use. No need to ask just do. For instance the font Paris Xoxo Script is a excellent choice for designing legal documents.

Mr Seo Goes to Washington

A Swedish Tiger

The Client
Göran Gillinger

The Challenge
Translating a Swedish icon to an American audience.

Dandileia logotypeAs with all theater posters the goal for the design is ultimately to fill the seats. But since this is Mr Gillingers first play in Washington DC the job was also to introduce him to a new audience. The play is named A Swedish Tiger which is a reference to an well known information campaign with iconic graphics here in Sweden. In the US the graphics is less known so the solution were to paraphrase J. Howard Miller’s Rosie the Riveter. The play is about how the Swedish people handled them self the second world war, and the message is that it is still relevant for people to speak up when we disapprove of how a war is handled.

Hello designer!

Saturday, June 16th, 2007

The Client
The Association of Swedish Designers

The Innovation
The first dating site where entrepreneurs can meet designers.

Dandileia logotypeSweden needs more innovative companies and a proven way for countries to breed more innovation is to encourage creative people to co-found multi-disciplinary companies with people outside their own industry. That’s why Tomas Seo pitched the idea that The Association of Swedish Designers should set up a match-making site where entrepreneurs could find designers to partner up with in 2006.

Together with Söderhavet, now mostly know for launching the first virtual world embassy in Second Life he developed the concept further and finally Silvia Media coded the whole thing. So that’s it and we are proud to say Hello designer!

Dandileia is changing to WordPress

Saturday, June 16th, 2007

Dandileia logotypeIt’s time for change. The Dandileia website has used Typo3 for a quite some time now. Since the WordPress engine worked so well on the Voccine project it was between that and Drupal that we used on the Hello designer project. Drupal has a more complex structure that is great for bigger websites so WordPress fits the fast and easy to update profile that Dandileia needs. This is live designing folks so for the next you will witness how things here goes from an empty shell to yummy content. Next stop is the portfolio so you can see what we’ve been up to before.

Exploring of the World of Podcasting

Voccine

The Project
Voccine – Pop Culture, Because It Matters!

The Exploration
Understanding podcasting and pop culture as a marketing tool.

Dandileia logotypeThere is no better way to understand a culture than to be a part of it. Decentralized media means that broad marketing campaigns have less impact, so if you want to be mainstream you might consider thinking niche. That’s why Tomas Seo and Christina Jeurling is launching their podcast: Voccine. Christina Jeurling is a television journalist. She has worked as chief editor for Stina Lundberg Dabrowski (30 min interviews with international leaders and cultural personalities), the talk show Late Night with Luuk, Henrik Schyfferts Dokument:Humor and many more. She and Mr Seo have been looking for a project where they can work together for quite some time now and this is it.

Dandileia designed the logotype and the avatar illustrations but the end game for this endeavor for Mr Seo is to gain knowledge how future clients could benefit from this new medium and from pop culture associations in general. And of cause to have fun ride while exploring.

Famous pop culture journalist Jan Gradvall writes in the national business paper Dagens Industri: Förutom sina egna åsikter hinner de i sina hyperinitierade halvtimmesprogram – den oinvigde uppmanas att googla för att förstå alla referenser – leverera fler tv-nyheter än någon annan svensk nyhetsbyrå eller tidning. » Read the unbridged story at DI.se .

Yes, the quot is indeed in Swedish, so is the podcast, however if you don’t speak Swedish you can still listen to the interviews. » Yes, I need to listen now!
