Swarovski Fall-Winter Collection, 2014 Tech Lead

Campaign hosted inside the .com site, featuring the Fall Winter Collection. My first Tech Lead role, assuring through a detailed interactive prototype and specification, that the site would meet the requirements from our team and the brief, which had a strong focus on performance. Development was done by a third-party agency in Germany and the final code implemented by the Swarovski team in Switzerland.

The biggest challenge was to create a lightweight single-page (part of the requirements) featuring around 50 products, backstage photos and videos, that could be updated throughout the season in a low cost way. The solution was to build the page in modules, host videos on Youtube, load images below the fold on scroll, keep animations simple, to name a few.

Swarovski Kindgdom of Jewels, 2012 Creative Development

An one month global campaign, during September 2012, where Swarovski brought the ‘Kingdom of Jewels‘ to women in 15 cities, from Sao Paulo to Shanghai, celebrating the brand’s Fall/Winter collection.

I've worked on the creative debrief, created the user experience together with the Art Director Viktor Wätterbäck from Perfect Fools and developed with love every pixel from desktop to mobile. This project made me proud and it is a good example of how a strong and integrated team can push the bar. Unfortunately, as it was a one month campaign, it is no longer live.

Swarovski Sparkling Valentines, 2012 Creative Development

An one-click Facebook application, that generates a custom-made personal add showing your most sparkling self. Additionaly, you could choose between 3 moods: Romantic, Adventurous and Funny

Besides being responsible for frontend development, I am proud to say I put in use years of reading horoscopes, and created a clever system that matched birthdays with facebook user information, to generate a description that would most probably match the users personality. And it worked!

World Design Capital 2012 Helsinki: Kauko installation, 2012 Creative Development

When the City of Helsinki was elected ‘World Design Capital‘ for 2012, they invited hasan & partners and Perfect Fools to help attract attention to Helsinki as a design center by spreading the word about the importance of design.

We then created Kauko (Finnish for "remote control"): "A seemingly normal café serving normal coffee, but with an important twist – its furniture, service and atmosphere can be remotely controlled via a website in real time.

For this project, I've worked together with the design team on the UX Design and developed Perfect Fools first responsive website. I had just returned from Frontend 2011 Conference in Oslo, highly inspired by a massive amount of talk about Responsive Design, which was quite new at that time. I must admit I was quite happy to be able to put it in practice and at the same time, in a very unusual way, turning a website into a mobile remote control!

Kauko won a few awards:
Gold in Guldägget Sweden 2013
3 shortslist in Cannes Lions 2012
The FWA Site of the Day
Cresta Silver
Epica Silver
Digital Marcom gold
also featured on TIME website and reported by BBC.
