We kickstart the week with some exciting news from our Malmö office.

We are extremely happy and proud that we have been able to recruit new colleagues who match our expectations” says Madeilene Liljeroth, COO Ottoboni Malmö.

New client within Telia
We already have the privilege of working with Telia and Telia Company. After a recent pitch process we are now assigned as digital agency for Telia Carrier.
/ Read moreTelia Carrier is the wholesale part within Telia Company that owns and operates one of the world’s most extensive fiber backbones, by providing network infrastructure and services to more than 1200 customers in 80 different countries worldwide.

360° in the Alps
We recently launched an interactive 360° experience for L’Oréal Men Expert and their skin care series with mountain water - Hydra Power. The launch builds around a 360°-video where you get to follow the pro-skier AJ Kemppainen as he makes his way down the mountain in the Alps. A new, exciting way for consumers to engage and explore the brand.
– We are really hitting the peak of the 360° trend while being technically forefront which goes hand in hand with the Men Expert brand and products, says Andreas Gartnell, Nordic Product Manager, L'Oréal Men Expert

We're inspired by...
There is nothing more exciting than thinking of a new idea. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a new idea work. There is nothing more useful than a new idea that helps you meet a goal...

With passion for cooking
Since many years, Cordon-Bleu and Verner & Verner are two well-known stores in Sweden. The love for cookery utensils and cooking has always been the main starting point. We have now launched zerazza.com, a new online store for premium quality kitchen utensils.
/ Read more Merx Team and Ottoboni have a far-reaching cooperation. The Zerrazza project started after the summer of 2015, together with Perfect Day Media. The common goal was to create a first class online store for the upcoming Christmas.
In classic Ottoboni style, we created a conceptual technical prototype at an early stage. As the work progressed, it turned into real-life situation. This enabled Perfect Day Media to start publishing their inspiring reportages and films and linking them to the products in the online store. Furthermore, the website has a lot of smart functions installed, ready to be activated as the e-commerce develops.

Riksbyggen launch x2
In December 2015, Riksbyggen launched the new web platforms riksbyggen.se and bonumseniorboende.se, with a design based on user tests and built with prototyping.
"The prototype has been a central tool. You can quickly identify key features which saves a lot of time and resources. Furthermore, it's a very good platform for monitoring and measurement", says Wictor Stiebel, account manager at Ottoboni.

Ottoboni compiled and concretized Riksbyggen’s different businesses in a pilot study. The user tests showed a demand for three main areas: find housing, property service and customer support, which became the guidelines in the user experience design. Target groups analysis were performed to find the driving forces and needs of potential visitors to the site.
A clickable prototype was created early and target tested continuously, in a joint team with Riksbyggen. A prototype makes it possible to test look and feel. How does it feel to navigate to a page, how do the buttons look in different modes and what happens when moving from desktop to mobile to tablet? The prototype also served as a basis for the digital styleguide.
New clients on board
During fall 2015 we started some exciting new collaborations; For Key Code, a company that provides security services and products, we have been contracted for the foundation of a new digital strategy. For EFG, European Furniture Group, we take on the role as strategic partner. We have also signed a two year contract with Västra Götalandsregionen.
We take this opportunity to welcome our new clients on board!
Learn to fail to succeed
Tero Salonen, Business Development Director at Ottoboni: "I’ve been lucky to work with many clients who have dared to think that the current status quo isn’t going to keep them at the top of the game. In this world the risks are big but the potential of winning is always so much bigger. To them, staying still is the biggest risk you can take."
What combines these clients, who dare to try and possibly fail?
Panel discussion at SIME
Our UX-Specialist Sussi Zällh joined the expert panel at SIME, as we held a joint Nordic Morning Workshop with our colleagues from Sitrus and KliKKi. The panel took a look at how a typical organization can stay grounded as it navigates the complexities of insights, content, visibility and service design.
Anyone can code! Or?
Is coding really that difficult? One of our front-end gurus, Kenneth Illman, challenged all of us, inspired by the "Code in the dark"-concept, coding without seeing the actual interface outcome. After a training session and some practicing the tournament was on.
Simple rules: Maximum 15 minutes. Only use CSS / HTML. No EMMET or Zen-coding. And absolutely no auto complete. That's where most of us got lost. Anyway – we all had great fun!
