If you are in the design/advertising industry and you will be in Stockholm on 31st May 2011, you should rsvp for the event Flirt! There will be a bunch of Hyper Island students, speakers, drinks, and music. Sounds like a good time to me.


I just emailed ASF to get a confirmation that they received my papers and documents, and the response I got was “yes, I received the email but I haven’t looked through the papers yet“. Hmm, I know my deadline was the 20th, and that isn’t the same date as for them to send it to the next person. But this makes me a little worried. What if something isn’t right, do I still have time to change it then???

I just bought a pair of Stripe shoes, which means a child somewhere in the world also got a pair of new shoes. You should do the same!

Random Sunday

I was just up on my rooftop and there was a band playing and a man filming them. So cool. They seemed to have lots of fun, and the music was great.

The Rapture

Fingers crossed

It’s the 18th of May and we just sent all my papers to ASF. It feels really good to have two days until deadline, wich will give them, and me, time if something needs changes.

Social Media

Nice vintage-style ads for social-media sites, such as “Twitter: The sublime, mighty community with just 140 letters!” The tagline on the second page of each spread is: “Everything changes fast. Update.”

I’m so happy

I talked to James and Jens today about my work so far at Your Majesty. I’m so happy I made the transfer, and I really love designing. I only got good feedback from both of them and we all want me to stay. So tomorrow I’m gonna email ASF and ask what they need from us so they can extend my J-1 visa to November.
