Gry Sagvolden and Benedicte Killi are creatives at Kitchen / Publicis in Oslo, and Hans Moe works as an account director at the same place. Although the trio has been working out of each their home office for the last year or so, the pandemic has still magically enough brought them closer together. They’ve won a huge bunch of awards - both gold and even more shiny things - and are generally extra happy when their work nudges the world in a little bit of a better direction. In addition to that, Hans is in the Guinness Book of World Records, Gry has defended young people’s rights in the UN’s headquarter and Benedicte looks so much like Meghan Markle it is impossible to tell the difference...
Here, the threesome shares their top five projects to come out of Norway in LBB's first Norwegian High Five...
DNB - 'Yolobrain'
This one is so weird. But also awesome. And weird. Did we say it’s weird? And even better is the fact that is really seems to lure the target group, which is very, very young people, into thinking more about their financial future. Who would have thought that was even possible?
Kondomeriet - 'The Relationship'
We LOVE indie romance movies, but right now we love POL creatives Anders and Theas’ bizarre take on it even more. And since most of us won’t meet a super handsome Hollywood actor to date during this pandemic anyways, it’s nice to see there are some more realistic alternatives out there for us.
Coop Prix - 'Mens Club'
When we first got our periods, we always tried to hide the tampons under like a million other things whenever we went to the grocery store, because it was SO embarrassing (well, maybe not for Hans…). So a big thumbs up for everyone who tries to make it normal and cool and natural instead (which it really is of course!) - especially when it comes from a big supermarket chain.
Mills - 'Delicate Situations'
We have the feeling we’ve been in all of these situations before – which is probably why they make us giggle. This is how Norwegian families are. Love the cast!
The Norwegian Directorate of Children, Youth and Family Affairs - 'The Invisible Child'
Agency: Kitchen / Publicis
This one is our own. But it is such an important topic, especially now with Covid-19. And even though this one is made for Norway, the problem with finding enough good foster homes is universal. So people, have a think: Do you have room for a child who longs to be seen?
