You’re right at home creating time plans, budgets and following up ongoing projects with clients - and you make things happen! You will also be running your own projects.

We’d love to have you installed in August, right after the vacation period.
Today is the premiere of Typiskt Göteborg, a web TV series in four parts, where David Sundin and Kakan Hermansson challenge the idea of what is typical for Gothenburg. Every episode is based on a classic image of Gothenburg, and the duo takes it from there and experiences the city in their own way.
The web series Typiskt Göteborg is the foundation of Göteborg & Co:s summer campaign. The series is led by comedian David Sundin and Kakan Hermansson, who barely had met before shooting the show. Now, they’re a tightly knit duo. During the course of the series, you’ll be able to follow David and Kakan as they experience the city in their own way, and challenge the image of Gothenburg. They will take on a couple of classic themes and from there, they widen the image of what the city has to offer – both the things you associate with Gothenburg, but also things easily missed by visitors. It’s an entertaining journey that stretches over four episodes, all characterized by lots of humour and warmth.
“This is an exciting and new approach which also goes well with our digital strategy. We’ve let go of a lot of the control that you usually have in a traditional campaign, letting the hosts control the show with their personalities. It goes very well with the personality of Gothenburg, which is very open and inclusive” says Camilla Nyman, CEO at Göteborg & Co.
The agency behind the series is Stendahls. The production company is Nexiko.
“The challenge of marketing a destination is that there is so much to say and to show, that it’s often hard to reach the entire target group and still be on point. But with this format, we can do just that”, says Andreas Gunberg, Key Account Manager at Stendahls. “David and Kakan have been allowed to do their thing during the taping of the show, and it made the result more real in a way that is difficult to achieve in similar advertising productions. I think it will show when you watch the series”.
This positive view of the taping of the show is confirmed by the duo:
“Despite early mornings and late evenings, we laughed our way through it. And I think it shows that we genuinely had fun. We never wanted it to end”, says David Sundin.
Kakan Hermansson continues:
“I think the most fun was when we took over the fish auction and I managed to charm 80-year-old fishermen, who were really difficult to approach. Or when I forced David to ride the foulest ride at Liseberg. That had something.”
The first episode of Typiskt Göteborg premiers today, Monday 30/5, and then another episode will be released once a week during a course of four weeks. Stendahls and Nexiko created both series and campaign at the request of Göteborg & Co, Liseberg and Universeum.
Stendahls is now looking for an ambitious creative who’s into innovative, conceptual, big thinking.
You’re passionate about your work, ambitious, and keen to show what we can achieve together – with the help of creativity and the latest thinking on how communication actually works. Starting out with a channel-independent approach, you can work with both digital and traditional channels, and with PR, events and much more. You know what we mean. As well as a talented creative, you must also be a skilled copywriter.
Stendahls is thriving, and we’ve recently secured several new clients. You’ll be working with some of our largest and most exciting brands.
We’re now launching Energisymfonin (The Energy Symphony) – a unique piece of music based on graphs that shows the energy consumption of Gothenburg. The purpose of the campaign is to make people aware of how we use energy. Göteborg Energi and Stendahls are behind the project.
Energisymfonin is a collaboration between Göteborg Energi, Maia Hirasawa, Klas-Henrik Hörngren (Klabbes bank) and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. In the music, we hear how the energy consumption varies throughout a year as the temperature goes up and down and half a million inhabitants of Gothenburg shower, work, cook and sleep. The insight behind the campaign came during a visit to the graph room at Sävenäs cogeneration plant.
“I think most of use walk around carrying some sort of climate anxiety, but at the same time it can feel rather hopeless to try to make a difference. In the energy graphs, there’s a bunch of exciting data that proves that the little things we do in our everyday lives really does matter, when many are doing it at the same time. When half a million people take a morning shower for example, it shows”, says Maja Kipatsi Danell, copy at Stendahls.
Energisymfonin is the first step in a long-term project designed to create commitment for energy issues.
“Using music to convey a message is not unique, but Energisymfonin is more than a soundtrack to a campaign. It’s a new way of making interesting data available to the public, packaged as something that hopefully is seen as more exciting than if we just would have talked about kWh” says Andreas Gunberg, Key Account Manager at Stendahls.
“Since we haven’t had much opportunity to work with purchased media, our focus has been on creating something interesting that people actually want to take part in, and that contributes positively to the community, which is a cornerstone in Göteborg Energi’s value-driven communication strategy”, says Andreas.
Energisymfonin is presented in form of a music video and a short documentary about the project. On the campaign site, you can listen to the music connected to the graph, and get tips on how to easily save energy in your everyday life. Energisymfonin is also available on iTunes and Spotify. The campaign will be released in full during week 21.
