Fredrik Blomberg & Tommy Gottberg / DoeBlombergGottberg
We welcome the creators of Experiment Ensam to share their story of how this very successful campaign came to be.
About Experiment Ensam: Bob Dylan:
Do we have more fun together with others? In Experiment Ensam gambling company PAF investigates the role of community to human enjoyment and well-being. One of Sweden’s, perhaps even the world’s, biggest Bob Dylan fans saw his idol perform at an arena gig – all alone. How did Fredrik find the experiment? Did he experience complete euphoria or a feeling of emptiness creeping in when there was no one to share the experience with?
Jenny Ericsson and Nicolin Lillhage / United Screens
Founded by Stina Honkama, the former Head of Google and Youtube in Sweden, United Screens is now the biggest nordic Youtube network. Their programs include Big Steve from Sweden, Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time and Tumba Ping Pong Crew. We welcome two of their Youtube experts to share the stage and tell us all about it.
This is the first Glug in Scandinavia, so we would like to start it with a WOOP and a WHAM, so we have also invited international artists to take part in an exhibition in conjunction with the event.

Pop-up art market:
One of Annis “things” is to draw on big windows. When there are no windows around to fill with colorful imaginary shapes and patterns, she sticks to smaller sized pieces of glass in pretty frames. Another thing Anni does with passion is painting with acrylic, also on big surfaces but mainly in standard sized paintings. Anni recently finished another mural at the new restaurant Savoy Grill in Malmö. A big glass drawing can be seen at Kulturmejeriet in Lund. Check out some of her work at cargocollective.com/annituikka

“Skrotnisse”, abandoned places , animals and nature are the main focuses of my creations. To build worlds with these ingredients gives me the same feeling as when you were little and built with Lego without an instruction manual. It becomes a kind of method to maintain the fantasy and curiosity in life. Small details with thin pen, often black and with strange proportions is my goal.

My name is Sabina and I work as a designer and illustrator. I believe that life’s small and big moments should be celebrated with a personalized handwritten card.
Written down in a special notebook. Served on a beautiful tray and recognized by uniquely designed and carefully selected gifts.
I love pattern design. for example by Viola Gråsten, Joseph Frank, Tricia Guild and the Art & Crafts movement. The rich heritage of the Scandinavian and Central European fairy tale tradition, the deep dark sea, nature’s magic and folk art are great sources of inspiration. My multicultural background, international career and training at Konstfack (College of Arts) has influenced me as a designer.

Glug – More Notworking™ than Networking
Glug is a series of events for the design and creative community. Our showcase event is held in London but there are now 10 other events around the world.
Based around a series of talks and informal networking, Glug has become one of the most exciting, credible and well attended creative events around.
Established in 2006, it’s an eclectic mix of people from all creative walks of life; from digital design, illustration, advertising, cutting edge creative technology through to fashion and architecture.
Glug started five years ago as a handful of mates talking shop in an East London pub. Six years later it’s now a regular global event with over 10,000 signed-up members on MeetUp.
Over this time we’ve had great talks, film preview, live art, installations and exhibitions from the likes of Airside, Anthony Burrill, Baiyon, Dixon Baxi, I Love Dust, Jason Bruges Studio, Mainframe, Marc Kremers, Noma Bar and Why Not Associates. Alongside these regular Glugs, we’ve also run events in conjunction with Arts & Business, D&AD, DAHRA, GameCity and Pick Me Up.
More Notworking than Networking™
Please note: Refunds will only be processed if the event is cancelled or moved to another date.
