â€œCreativity is a mental process involving the generation of new ideas or concepts, or new associations between existing ideas or concepts. From a scientific point of view,the products of creative thought are usually considered to have both originality and appropriateness. An alternative, more everyday conception of creativity is that it is simply the act of making something newâ€? Wikipedia
“Magic of creation” Some time ago I published a selection of photos on a web community showing people from various of my previous projects. An over exited friend commented that they were an unique collection of pictures and that I had to publish them. I started my career as an artist and ended up doing untraditional marketing and producing concepts for restaurant and life style companies as a freelance consultant under the name Parts Creative. But the essential inspiration for all my projects has always been the same, whether I’ve been painting or producing restaurant conceps; the exiting force of creativity and the world of the imagination, a universe where nothing is impossible and everything is possible. Creativity is the unlimited force of giving birth to new ideas and to see these grow and evolve and step into the daylight of reality, to meet and interact with people has always been my passion and drive. This addiction for change and new challenges has resulted in a countless numbers of funny and interesting ideas and projects. So eventually I listened to my friend and put together this portfolio, a chaotic mix (ignoring every esthetic theory) of pictures of previous and new projects, people, friends and customers, and then some more friends. Well, in the end it is all about people, isn’t it?
Prepare to be dazzled / Patric Andersson aka Parts Creative.
â€?When you ask executives where they expect to find their most sustainable competitive advantage, what do they answer? Innovation. Because the truth is, innovation lies at the heart of both better design and better business. It magnifies drive inside every organizationâ€? Marty Neumeier
Parts Creative “Make things happen” Parts creative is an idea & innovation agency that invents and reinvents business concepts and integrated social platforms for companies that wants to connect and activate their brand with people within the popular culture. People are slowly moving into a new social media market space and companies have to follow. Parts creates, communicates and activates brands by collaborating and engaging with influencer´s and lead users in an integrated real life and virtual environment experience.

Parts Creative is specialized in the following services
Communication solutions for fashion, music, media, beverage and entertainment businesses Activities for all lifestyle related businesses with focus on modern gifted people Concepts for cafés, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and other related lifestyle businesses
Leading companies are losing the power to dictate the communications agenda, new rules are required to radically reinvent how they interact and relate to customers. Connected marketing, the collected name for word of mouth, buzz and viral marketing, uses pre-existing social networks with high social networking potential (SNP) to produce increasing brand awareness among the opinionleaders. This method creates superior customer engagement (CE) and provides new guidelines and opportunities for the development of lifestyle brands and businesses.
Communication solutions “Make them want you” Parts communication strategy is not about selling, it is about making friends. Brands are not built, they grow as people start to believe in them. Today’s interactive market space is fundamentally changing how people and brands relate and interact with each other. Today it is less important what the company promises through traditional advertising and more relevant how customers relate and respond to the brand and communicate amongst themselves. Customers and networks talk back and with this new perspective, the brand’s communication strategies have to adopt new a participation principles: listen, entertain, educate and connect, rather than offering business transactions and proposals. Parts produces simple, intelligent relationship marketing solutions for brands to connect and engage with influencer´s that constitute 10% of the population, but that intends to shape the opinions and purchase patterns of the following 90%. It is Parts’s belief that the brand influencer´s not are a part of the market but a part of a consumer centric communication strategy. These modern and independent people only act upon their own beliefs and categorically reject old school advertising. By sharing core values and collaborate with this dynamical group across multiple social platforms, the brand develops business aggregators that will missionary the brand values face to faces, heart to hearts. Parts is specialized at: Connected marketing, social media, viral marketing, community management, virtual events, buzz marketing, social CRM , new PR, new media planning and social media training for companies that need to upgrade their communication profile and to tap into new markets to sustain progress and profit.

Instead of listening to companies’s value propositions, people are turning to each other for advice. Customers opinions are shaping the brands more than the brands are shaping the market.

We asked ourselves, if you walk around town, where do you look? On billboards with classical advertising or at charismatic people you meet in the street? POP Communication is Parts’s own guerrilla marketing/ street promotion tool. POP COM is the concept of connecting people trough unexpected and unconventional methods measured by creativity, humor and humanity. POP COM are solutions out of the box, identifying new territories and areas to involve customers in creative off guard brand experiences. POP COM makes the streets and official spaces into a scene, a gallery or an interactive platform for the brand to perform and entertain its audience. This is “under the radar” marketing that people want and it creates legitimate reasons for the brand to connect with people within its trusted network.

Buzz is big business. Consultancy firm McKinsey & Co estimates that two thirds of the economy is driven by word of mouth. WOM is the method that exploits the connectivity between people as a marketing media to drive business growth. An Interesting purchase pattern is that traditional advertising generates at 15% in positive return, while WOM generates 76%. Award winning ads don’t necessarily mean great sales. Buzz Buys™ is Parts own communication tool. A very exclusive group selected by Parts gets products before any body else. This seeding trial makes opinion leaders into an army of powerful brand evangelists. This is an effective launch accelerator strategy that can enhance sales by 10%-30% and at the same time it generate tremendous amount of goodwill.

Belladonna Trackers Task: Communication concept Objective: To activate fashion brands within the blogosphere using the rebellious motorcycle culture Client: Various afilliate advertisers Year: In progress Art & Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Web: http://belladonna-trackers.blogspot.com/
BDT is a collective of artists, musicians, dancers, party people, thinkers, creative minds, etc. Others would say that they are only the frivolous who initiative frivolity. That’s fine too. BDT would like to think that they serve as an outlet for creative minds dedicated to the preservation of all things important to them. They would also like to think that what they are doing, is the only things they are doing, which is just that: the act of doing. A little bit too general? Maybe. Not specific enough? Sure. But they are no different than you, or anybody else. And just like you and everybody else in the world, rather than trying to define ourselves to a precision, BDT would rather just do things to keep moving, because they would rather be victims of their own charade, than being fools who don’t do anything at all. BDT is not hype, not now, not then, not best, not high, not low, not juicy, not street, not scene, not punk, not rock, not rich, not poor, just Belladonna. Today BDT is Sweden’s biggest MC-lifestyle blog with over 50 000 unique visitors from more than 60 countries and serve as an important link between several companies and their community.

Knivsöder ™ Task: Online design store Objective: To explore new technology to make business Client: Own business Year: Present Art & Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative, Nathalie Hedin Web: www.knivsoder.com
Solution: The new digital Eco system creates unlimited global business possibilities. Knivsöder is the concept to exploit sophisticated technology and networking capabilities to connect lifestyle brands with the creative people of Stockholm. The creative resources of the small hip neighborhood Knivsöder (Knife south) in Stockholm will be introduced to a global market at the end of 2010. This long-tail creation of new markets is the future of independent small niched businesses. With cloud computing applications, software as service (SAS), affiliate solutions and social media, small businesses can go to the market with a very limited economical resource. Today Knivsöder is a picture blog serving people with inspiration and ideas. To quote the great thinker and speaker Chris Anderson “give one value away to create a demand for another”.

Solution: The GI diet is the result of a new health consciousness. Today’s major issues are the global warming as well as weight control programs. Parts Creative’s idea for this new health restaurant was to create a design program with a feeling of nature’s simplicity and freshness. With a short and easy name (that feels a bit like GI), and clean forms and light colors IN is one of the first restaurants in Stockholm within this new trend. Today IN is serving hundreds of low calorie and ecological lunches to health hunting humans, and the idea is to franchise this concept around Sweden.

Magic Spirit Task: Product name and brand identity Objective: To produce a brand identity and communication strategy for the energy drink Magic’s new alco breezer Client: Magic, Mathias Von Gegerfelt Year: -06 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative
Solutions: Magic is the only energy drink made out of natural ingredients. This was Parts’s inspiration when the pitch was developed for Magic’s new alco breezer. Parts’s idea was to capture the spirit when man reconnects with nature. A series of pictures were presented; a man in a boat with a full spinnaker sail against a clear sky, a man on the top of the mountain hill with his hands raised up. The name ”MAGIC SPIRIT” and the payoff “Gets you there” was invented to symbolize the sensation the consumer would experience drinking this new Swedish alco breezer.

VIPKORT VIP CARD CARTE DE VIP VIPKARTE
Solution: Berns was in the need of a new VIP card and it was Parts’s idea to take every chance to create buzz. Parts had for a long time targeted the designer communities as possible customers to Berns and this was now the challenge. A design competition was organized to produce the new VIP card and an invitation was distributed out to advertising agencies, design bureau and design schools. A jury with famous designers and artists was engaged, but when there was only one day before deadline, only one contribution had arrived. However, on the deadline hour, Berns’s hotel reception was filled hundreds of brilliant contributions. The whole designer community had layed down their daily work to contribute with a visual concept to the contest. This campaign resulted in a relationship with 259 of Sweden’s top designers and one beautiful VIP card, at the only cost of a free meal in Berns’s restaurant.

From one week to the other Sweden’s biggest nightclub, Berns, closed its gates in front of thousands of loyal guests . The club had become overheated and the government turned down its license. Since Parts (earlier Pontus och Patric) had provided the guests with VIP cards and Berns was a second home to many people, action was really needed. A business card shaped sticker with the parole “stick with us“ was mailed out to the 5000 big guest-list. “Put this sticker on a card you don’t have any use for” was the following copy, people were smiling and took their useless Berns card out of the garbage can. Soon Parts had redirected the homeless guests to alternative spaces around Stockholm and secured the loyalty of the faithful guests. Every new place that opened up got its own sticker in different colors defining the customer’s credibility and privileges. This was a solution to a situation that could have lead to total catastrophe - losing face in front of the demanding audience. In both positive and negative situations it’s important to produce creative word of mouth movements. Parts always explores the communication possibilities within the project’s unique situation.

Solution: The high profiled Berns Hotel needed a cutting edge product to sell and give away to the guests. Parts Creative’s idea was to come up with a viral ”giveaway” that the prominent guest would bring around the world and at the same time promote the fantastic hotel. Fifteen of the talented Swedish jazz musicians that were performing on the big stage at Berns restaurant were recorded and two live compilation CDs were produced. Later that year one night at a dinner at restaurant Gustavinos in New York, “Live at Berns” were coming out of the speakers.

The Plup/Copy tric
The Copy tric: A few months after Berns’s opening, it was known as the biggest restaurant fiasco in the history of Sweden, and Parts got the assignment to change that. Ten of Sweden’s most upcoming entertainment personalities were contracted by Parts to host one night at the beautiful outdoor terrace. A picture was taken with the group gathered together smiling in front of the magnificent facade of Berns. A VIP card was produced, that deliberately was super easy to copy and the limited cards were given away to a very selective group of connectors and opinion leaders. Every night the bouncers noticed an increasing amount of cards showing up at the entrance, they were smiling saying nothing…Stockholm’s hipsters went to the copy machine and Berns got onto the nightlife map.
The Plup: A VIP card is a brilliant carrier of word of mouth and buzz marketing potentials. A hologram sticker was produced and given away to a very restricted amount of influensers and opinion leaders in Stockholm. With this sticker placed on the backside of Berns’s VIP card, they had access to the “holy” VIP room “Le”. Parts spread the rumor that people were spending 500 euro for the sticker on E-bay. Two weeks later Parts overheard the same story from a total stranger at a café down town. The sticker got myth status and were to be known as the “Plup”.
Parts Gallery: “Guardian Angels” Patric Andersson´s angels have left the sky. The question is: will the angels still save us? Maybe. But only if we can save ourselves. Shouldn’t they take us a step closer to a better world, embedded in ideological machinery? It’s too late. Ideologies and traditions have been increasingly speaking with undertones of an existential crisis. Everything is now about survival. This also applies to the angels, embroiled in a tangle of phenomena which induces moral attitude to life and the mass media dictated behavior. Yet it is a promise of freedom angels, but not for everyone and definitely not for those who read books about liberty. They are not free, declares the angels earnest gaze. Goodness remains in the range between the conscious and the subconscious, they say. It would be useless to refer Patric Andersson’s work to the domains intended for conventional art, although the choice of materials (the works are painted with oil on canvas). Here are all of the symbolism mutation, which appears to extremes of mass culture, with an aesthetic code that rather belongs to the goth-culture, motorcycle associations or computer games with the art of killing. The angels are now on earth. Perhaps to accompany us to a Utopia where Christ aptly portrays himself in a suit?
Pontus & Patric
Solution: Parts Creative is one part of the former company Pontus & Patric. P&P started as a pr and event-marketing agency, developing different communication concepts for lifestyle and beverage brands. Soon their superior experience and expertise of the club culture got them contracted full-time. P&P had an unique holistic strategy for their clubs and restaurant projects, from updating the basic business: interior, sound, light and connecting important partners and co-workers. When these things were in place, a smart word of mouth campaign was released embracing the important, exiting people of the city. With a lot of love and a brilliant application form, P&P created a personal guest list consisting 4.000 people of Stockholm’s hippest fashion photographers, artists, musicians, models, stylists, TV- and music producers. P&P kept a tight relationship with the guest through hundreds of events with cutting edge music, design and art for more than seven years. P&P won Dagens Nyheter’s, (the biggest morning paper), prize ”Stockholm heroes” and received an enormous amount of appreciation for their effort in making Stockholm a funnier place.

Pleasure by Baileys
Solution: Parts Creative gave ten upcoming Swedish fashion photographers a mission. Every photographer got twelve bottles of Baileys and one week to produce two pictures on the theme ”pleasure”. An exhibition with all the pictures was organized at an uptown gallery. A hip creative crowd of Stockholm party people were invited to the show… soon they were all smiling and sipping ice-cold Baileys drinks. The pictures were published in a beautiful book and distributed around the coolest bars in Stockholm. Baileys got headlines in a daily magazine saying that ”The hip people are now drinking Baileys” and the sales increased with 12% at Systembolaget (government controlled alcohol sales stores).

â€œDiffusion of innovation It is found that people were more likely to adopt, or even consider adopting, if people they know and respect have adopted. Imitation is the strongest influence channel. Therefore, the most effective marketing strategy is to first reach the early adopters, then reinforce the diffusion to each successive level, but not to waste resources on trying to reach any given level before it is ready for itâ€? Everett M. Rogers
Activites “Living the brand” There is nothing more attractive than an active brand, a brand that fly, race, throw parties, arrange art exhibitions and contribute people’s life with happiness and excitement. With face to face activities people are no longer just a passive audience, they become active participants. Communication becomes what it is meant to be, a dialog and an experience. The brand grows from image to identity with the interaction of people. Parts integrates the brand’s activities to a communicative platform. These interactive platforms produces relationship, engagement and brand loyalty far beyond old school marketing and at the same time the business receives important information and response back. Face to face experiences are king of customer collaboration and superior aggregators of word of mouth and buzz potentials. People love to talk and activities create a reason for them to do so. People are tired of empty slogans, they want action, so don’t say it, just do it! In Sweden, Parts has an updated customer register of innovators and creators of public opinion within the fields of fashion, media, music and entertainment. Parts is specialized in customer experience management (CEM): event marketing campaigns, product releases, concerts, club and sport events solutions for following businesses: Lifestyle media, television and magazines. Restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Restaurant related businesses, beverages etc. Fashion, music and game industry.
Solution: Parts’s assignment and task was to reinvent the concept of SMC and to reinforce the relationship with its lost audience. In the new era of sharing and transparency, Parts realized that if SMC wanted to be a part of the nightclub scene, the nightclub scene had to be a part of SMC. So instead of a top to bottom organized event the strategy was rebuilt the concept by connecting with the Dj´s and entrepreneurs, that for the last years had been taking control over the nightly entertainment scene. The Dj’s were not just contracted to perform but also invited to participate in the development of the concept. The name “New Order” was invented to symbolize this new movement. A Facebook group was created and within one week it had 1500 members, all invited by the 20 Dj´s who were admins for the new SMC. New Order took place at 3 different nightclubs and attracted over a thousand visitors.

Solution: Stockholm´s club scene is undergoing a paradigm shift, the scene is no longer changing, it is being replaced. A new era of hungry young visionaries are entering the scene and the new generation of ”digital natives” will forever change the entertainment scene in Stockholm. In the past, diversity and musical quality was filtered through the limited channels of distribution, but the new digital revolution has made ” underground” democratic. This new order was Parts’s inspiration when SMC wanted to pay tribute to this creative movement. Parts selected twenty of the most influential people within this new wave of entrepreneurs, people that had been exploring, and developing the scene into a chaotic mix of joy and happiness. A book was published and released, making a broader audience enlighten of this dynamical exciting time. At the same time SMC developed an invaluable relationship with Stockholm’s most important people.

Solution: What is it that makes home parties so special? As soon as you hit the club the spirit is lost. This is what Fancy wanted to change. Fancy was a moving members club for the people in the fashion industry. At Fancy the guest is a part of the concept. The guests are invited to interact with the club, from exhibiting their own creative work to perform on the stage. Every night the guests brought their own favorite music and hijacked the decks as they fell in mood. Instead of being passive observers, Fancyâ€™s guests became active participants, just like at a great home party. This was Partsâ€™s first fully integrated CEM-project (customer experience management) using Facebook and social media as the only communication tool. Fancy got 1000 loyal fans just within a couple of weeks.

Solution: Real life brand experience is often the best foundation for creating customer loyalty and business development. To find a new audience and build the brand “Speedway”, the best thing to do is to do things great…and then even better. Superior performance and innovation magnifies the drive within every project, from the inside and out. This was Parts’s mantra, as the boring and old-fashioned Speedway events needed to be updated and attract a new young Stockholm audience. Umbrella girls, hip Dj’s and freestyle motocross drivers were contacted to perform during the event. A massive beautiful poster campaign covered the city promoting the spectacular show. The event increased the audience flow with 2000 people and made hundreds of Stockholmers experience speedway for the first time in their life.

Privé Task: VIP club event concept Objective: The regular guest at Berns needed to be challenged with a re-discovery event campaign Client: Johan Tangen, Berns Salonger Year: -04 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Mika Pollack
Solution: In every relationship there comes a time when partners starts to take each other for granted and may loose a little interest. Every project has its life circle. This was exactly what Berns regulars felt after years of repeated visits. ”Only when the red light shines”, was Parts Creative saying on the invitation card that was sent out to five thousand hip people in Stockholm. A red lamp was mounted on top of the flagpole on the roof at Berns. Only when the lamp was lit, (randomly without any notice to any guest), the doors opened up to the new club Privé and the VIPs could enter the legendary Red Room (Strindberg’s novel was named after this room). Every night different artists contributed with exhibitions or performances on a special theme like “peep show” and “fart art” (fast art). Berns’s regular guests had to show up every weekend night, in order to be sure not to miss an exclusive Privé party. A limited 300 edgy people in fashionable outfits were selected to enter each night by the transsexual doorman in white leather gloves..
Solution: If you watch a movie, play or concert, it’s the artist and the experience that is the “attraction”. Nightclubs communicate with their guests with cool flyers promoting the Dj and the artist name in focus, even though this information is secondary. It really doesn’t matter who is on stage or what is coming out of the speakers, if the crowd isn’t right. With that in mind, Parts created the first club concept where the guests are the stars, and the meeting between them the whole idea. The word Bästis (Buddy) came up and became the name for this funny concept. A photo studio was built at the entrance of Berns and throughout the Thursday nights, Berns’s VIP guests were given tickets to be photographed in the studio. With inspiration from old idol picture cards, hundreds of ”Bästisar” (Buddy collect cards) were produced and distributed around Stockholm in plastic stands. The cards fulfilled the guest’s dreams of being a star. At the same time they became the greatest ambassadors for the business as they gave away cards of them self to all their friends.
Task: Nightclub buzz marketing concept, graphic and interior design, marketing business and entertainment consulting Objective: To update the Thursday business at Berns and secure the relationship with Stockholm’s fashion crowd Client: Magnus Bergh, Berns Salonger Year: -05 Photography: Malou Bergman Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Planet Creative/Lars Hansson, Lah
Nu Sweden Task: Nightclub concert activity, brochure production, pr, marketing and concert booking Objective: To create a relationship between Berns and the hip fashion and underground music crowd, and to increase business at Berns on Fridays Client: Magnus Bergh / Berns Salonger Year: -04 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Joel Brosjö, Pdl Photography: Stefan Holm Live music: Spånka/ Stockholm Jazzbeat Project/Goran Kaifes/Stockholm Cyclo/ Hundarna från Söder and Book houseboys
Solution: For several years commercial music has been one of Sweden’s biggest exports products. In June 2004, Parts brought up the Swedish avant-garde underground music scene out of the dark basements and up on the big fancy stage at Berns. A beautiful booklet was produced with photos and information about the artists and printed in ten thousand copies to be given away to opinion leaders and connectors around town. On nine Fridays, with big success, these bands performed on the very same stage that had been graced by stars like Edit Piaf, Marlene Dietrich, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Isaac Hayes, Alicia Keys, White Stripes and Harry Bella Fonte. Future plans are made for taking this concept to New York, Tokyo etc.
Parts Gallery: Vladimir Rodjenko “Breaking rules is the principle of evolution” Parts’s network of artists believes: “good is just good, but great is revolution”. Revolution is an idea that dissolves its own concept and from that creates new shapes and forms. In the border zone between graphical design, photography and art, challenges Parts traditional rules in the search of developing new innovative expressions and ideas. Parts’s artist is an ear to society’s rail way barn, foreseeing future trends and lifestyle phenomena long before it arrives in our illusional world.
Bottom Line A couple of years ago I was searching the Internet for a font I needed for logotype I was working on. I had a vague memory that Björn Borg used it for a lingerie campaign a few years earlier. After hours on Google I came across an angry feministic article about the Björn Borg campaign, trying to sexualize the official room. A very liberating idea…that someone is able to sexualize the official room. Isn’t that what separates southern European countries from Sweden - that people live closer to themselves and their sexuality? A room where men are men and women are women and the difference between them, the energy and force that creates life, love and moves life forward. Haven’t we, on our Nordic latitude, lost our sexual identity and our ability to challenge? We live with a strange double moral, glamorizing violence and TV channels showing successfully hardcore porn for 20 dollars a month, but when Terry Richardsson shoots pictures of sexy women for Sisley or H&M that shows a little or a lot of flesh, a whole society revolutionizes. Are we suddenly a moral race that point out when we cross the line between the private and official room..? So, it is with great pleasure that Parts presents the controversial and ”unswedish” concept, Russian born art photographer Vladimir Rodjenko. His manic fascination for the female crotch is wonderfully refreshing, the place where we put our heads when we seek comfort and at the same it is the target that half of the world’s sexual fantasies lay. Vladimir states that we should have beauty contests for women’s abdomen to homage and celebrate their unique ability to create life. From the darkest primitive to the most cultural up-lit side of us, Vladimir portraits pictures of the human dynamic and dualism with hypnotic repetitive picture suites that moves the thought to French love movies and the Devil in miss Jones, a sort of pornographic picture poetry, the cock meets the brain without shame. Whether Vladimir is a poet or a pornograph is up to you to decide.
Task: Nightclub event: Brochure production, pr, marketing and entertainment consulting Objective: To position Berns as a music venue and increase the business on Fridays Client: Magnus Bergh, Berns Salonger Year: -03 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Joel Brosjö Photography: Stefan Holm Djs: Johan Netz/Jonas Lönnå/ Stonebridge/ Cari Lekebusch/ Tony Zoulias/ Krazy/ Micke Elmenbeck and Johnny Boy
Solution: On ten Fridays, Sweden’s most famous Dj’s were contracted to play at Berns’s main dance floor. These legendary Djs brought the club culture to Sweden in the early 80s from London and New York, and without them the club scene would never have been the same. A booklet with stylish photos and interviews was produced and distributed to Berns’s 4.000 people vip guest list. Each Dj got 100 exclusive concert tickets with their name printed on to give away to their friends and partners. On the gig night the Dj’s were invited like stars to a threecourse dinner in the fancy restaurant together with all his friends. After the dinner, guards escorted the Dj into the nightclub, and tables were booked around the Dj-booth for their friends. These nights were enormously appreciated by the Djs, their friends and specially the audience. The guests were showing up, hence Berns established their business on Fridays.
EL Task: Nightclub event concept: graphic profile, pr, marketing and entertainment consulting Objective: To create a high profile activity to increase the slow business at Berns on Thursdays Client: Magnus Bergh, Berns Salonger Year: 02-04 Creative direction: Ibbi Isaacs/Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Joel Brosjö Live Music: Alex from Tokyo/ Amin Tobyn/Billy Nasty/Capoeira Twins/Crystal Waters/Cutlass Supreme/Fanny Pack/Jesper Dahlbäck/Crafty Cuts/Roller Cone/Paul Murphy/Sumo/Transparent Sound/Taxi and many many more…
Parts Creative’s concept was to attract the stars of the club scene, the Dj-producers and dance music artists, and together with them reach the high profile clubbers. For several years these producers had provided Dj’s with amazing hot tunes. Now the idea was to start a live club were these producers would perform on a stage with a full band. The club name “EL”, (also the host club “LE” spelled backwards) which means electricity, got a brilliant logo with two people dancing inspired by printed circuit cards. A trendy club promoter was contacted to face the new crowd and El became an innovative musical Mecca, an enchanted inferno for the hippest clubbers and won reputation all over Europe.
Sommar Task: Club concept and event marketing campaign Objective: To give people in Stockholm a reason to stay in town during the summer, and to get the hipsters to drink Baileys Client: Baileys, Tommy Sandelin, UDV, Year: -01 Creative direction: Pontus Ernfors/ Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Mika Pollack, King Size
Solution: Summer in the city is a big no no for most Stockholm residents. Parts Creative’s goal was to change this. A series of summer parties were organized and every cool Dj in Stockholm was invited to play, six Dj’s a night. At the same time, a new way of drinking Baileys was presented. Instead of drinking it in small liqueur glasses, it was served in a whiskey glass filled with ice, like a ”ready-to-drink” White Russian. These parties were the talk of the town that summer, and will be remembered as the “Baileys parties”. “Sommar” later became a club sequel and a refuge for “alone in town” Stockholmers for six years. Every year Parts located the next generation of upcoming life style personalities and made them hosts of their own weekend night at the summer-club.
Sommar medMonica Task: Club concept and event marketing campaign Objective: To introduce Berns’s summer terrace and promote Gilbeys and “Gin tonic” Client: Gilbeys, Allied domec/Berns Year: 01 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Pontus Ernfors
Solution: “Sommar med Monica” was Parts Creative’s first step in bringing back Berns to its former position as Stockholm’s top nightclub. Glossy postcards of the summer in Stockholm were purchased. With a brilliant printing technique looking like handwritten text, a fictive person called Monica sent out summer greetings to a list of important people in Stockholm. The text was: “Hi! I’m standing here on Berns terrace, sipping on an ice-cold gin tonic, and it’s fantastic! Hope to see you here next week! Love Monica”. These postcards were on everybody’s lips for a few summer months. Stockholm wondered who this mysterious Monica might be that was visiting Berns for the first time in their life.
Solution: Parts Creative’s (earlier Pontus & Patric) idea was to slowly transform the newly renovated 250 empty-seated Conran restaurant into a vibrant nightclub (which according many was considered an impossible task). Parts first step was to update and develop the restaurant’s overall business idea. Each one of the many rooms in this magnificent building got their own identity with a name, music, interior and concept. High profiled bartenders and Dj’s were contracted. The next step was to launch a brilliant entertainment and marketing campaign to establish contact with Stockholm’s hip clubbers. Parts’s idea was to create a utopia, a world within the world, were love and happiness were the law and the guests were the citizens. Berns became a multi musical and cultural inferno, all strategically directed by Parts. Berns went from 3 to 23 million € in turnover over a five year period, without spending one euro on traditional advertising using only alternative creative marketing solutions. At the same time Berns became, with its six bars and six dance floors, one of the hippest and most visited restaurant/nightclub in the history of Stockholm.

Parts engages and catalyzes the market’s creativity, embracing their suggestions, processing information, interact trough the project development and in the end implement the collaboration permanent trough the companies culture to continuously improve itself.

Solution: When a numbers of entrepreneurs had failed to build a profitable business in the spectacular restaurant space on Tulegatan, the mission came to Parts Creative to change this trend. The concept was to combine a traditional cozy atmosphere with a modern avant-garde arty feeling to create intimacy in this large, sterile space. The walls were covered with red medallion wallpaper and the entire carpentry was painted in dull black. The tables were covered with white linen and decorated with a brass candlestick that was given to the restaurant by a guests at the premier party. To contrast the traditional interior, avant-garde artists were invited to custom-make exhibitions (that often had provocative sexual themes) to interact with the restaurant’s concept. A trendy graphic identity, food menus and a logotype with a gothic form, were produced. Later, Parts created a unique outdoor extensive restaurant area with their own design furniture and wall-pieces framing the open space, inspired by the walls inside. A competent staff was recruited and only six month later it got top review in all magazines and rewarded as “best bar in town” at the yearly prize ceremony held by one of Sweden’s biggest daily newspapers.
Task: Restaurant concept with interior design, graphical identity, pr, business and entertainment consulting Objective: To create a turnaround strategy for one of the greatest restaurant addresses in Stockholm Client: Anders Björklund Year: 06-08 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Lars Hansson, Lah/ Johan Thuresson, Zebra Apa Interior design: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Exhibitors: Vladimir Rodjenko/John Ismael/Steve Novak
Solution: Restaurant concepts are a complex variation of important details integrated into a clear visual idea and product. When these essential details interact and meet the guest or customer, it creates ambiance; positive environmental energy. It is the level of this energy that defines a successful project and Parts never looses target on that fact. Parts Creative gave the gold ornamented upper class venue “Kharma” a heavy transformation. To create a radical change, the walls were painted in dull grey, the two different bars were painted in a clear glossy color to contrast the walls. A minimalistic furniture set was designed and built. The walls were cleaned up to make space for exhibitions by young photographers and designers. To give the guests a chance to express themselves with their own words and drawings, a big blackboard covering the hole wall was placed at the entrance. Inspired by the local bars of New York, a pool table was put in one of the rooms. The nightclub was built in five days and hosted by some of the greatest Dj’s in Stockholm.
Task: Nightclub concept with interior design, graphical identity, pr and marketing Objective: Within a minimum of time and an ultra slim budget, create a concept that would help one of Stockholm’s most established entertainment addresses to regain public flow Client: Stephen Ferber, Kharma Group Year: -05 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Lars Hansson, Lah Interior design: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative

Task: Nightclub concept with interior design, graphical identity, pr, business and entertainment consulting Objective: To create business on one of Stockholm’s most known club addresses with a new nightclub concept Client: Catenacci, Café Opera Year: -06 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Art direction: Lars Hansson, Lah Interior design: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative
Solution: Stockholm’s hip people needed a new watering hole after Sweden’s biggest nightclub Berns had closed its gates. To contrast with the hard nightclub climate Parts Creative’s idea was to create a nightclub with a feeling of a cozy livingroom. On the first floor a bar was built with walls and furniture in warm colors with classic disco lights. Upstairs a bedroom was furnished with a giant bed, an open fireplace and walls covered with framed pictures of Parts VIP guests. Stockholm’s most established club promoter, ”Pete”, was contracted to secure the relationship with the old-time clubbers. The music went back to organic vocal club music. At Christmas time the guests where helping each other decorating the Christmas tree at the dance floor and only two weeks later, daily press was saluting saying: “this was the best bar for ages”.
Solution: LE was Parts second big step in the mission of transforming the restaurant Berns into a vibrant entertainment palace. The idea was to open a VIP nightclub in the 5.000 square meter big restaurant. Le is one of Parts integrated restaurants make-over Concept. First a graphical platform with a business name was created. Then Parts’s interior design was put into production, followed by the entertainment, pr and communication strategy. High profiled bartenders were contracted from Berns’s biggest competitors and an extremely cutting edge music profile was set up. A graphic identity and interior design inspired by the geometrical forms of Lego was taking shape, with the club’s name ”LE” which means “smile” in Swedish. That was exactly what the crowd did. For several years this was the place to be. Only the bold and beautiful were lucky to get through the ultra strict door policy and this club was the beginning of Berns’s huge success that later resulted in more than 2000 visitors every night.

Bubbla Task: Nightclub concept with interior design, graphical identity, business and entertainment consulting Objective: The gigantic restaurant Monte Carlo went bankrupt and Parts was contracted by a lawyer company to open up and run a nightclub in this space until a new commercial operator were found Client: Fylgia, Lawyer Company Year: -01 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative/Pontus Ernfors Art direction: Mika Pollack, King size
Solution: The name Bubbla (bubble) were invented to symbolize the most volatile club in Stockholm’s history. At any time the club could close. The communication tactic was to create a nightclub phenomena that nobody could miss to experience. With an enormous response from sponsors and partners, a nightclub was built in three weeks. Together with the Swedish tobacco company Blend, “Black Room” was design to promote their new product Blend Black. The whole room was painted black with only a few TV-monitors showing old sex information videos. With three different dance floors, art exhibitions and concerts, it became the media’s favorite club to talk about over the few months it lasted. On the opening night, police had to redirect the traffic outside the entrance because of the enormous crowd. Later, the press wrote that the worst things that happened in the past month were the increasing taxi prices and that the bubble had bursted…
Formbar Task: Bar, exhibition concept with interior design, graphical identity, pr and entertainment consulting Objective: To create a relationship between the brand Ballantine and Stockholm’s design and art crowd and to update the Chiaro night-club with a cutting edge bar Client: Ballantines, Allied Domec/ Tomas Perra, Restaurant Chiaro Year: 98-99 Creative direction: Patric Andersson/Ibrahim Isaacs Art direction: Mika Pollack, King Size/Joel Brosjö Interior design: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative/Ibrahim Isaacs Exhibitors: Claesson, Koivisto, Rune/Paula Cerda/Erik Broms /Sesse Lind/Sweden Graphics/Stefan Holm/Mika Pollack, King size.
Solution: Parts Creative developed this bar-concept on assignment by Ballantines as an ironical answer to the never changing music and fashion industry. Parts Creative’s ambition with the concept Formbar (means formable) was to be the first totally changeable bar in the world. Formbar was built with walls made by 250 exchangeable pieces. Swedish photographers, designers and artists were contacted to use the wall pieces for different weekly exhibitions. Along with the exhibitions Ballantines strengthened their position with the innovators of Stockholm. This twisted concept was hosted by the coolest designers, Dj’s and artists and attracted party people from all over of Stockholm.

Jazzroom Task: Bar concept with interior design, graphical identity, marketing and entertainment consulting Objective: Produce a cutting edge bar for the giant nightclub Sturecompaniet to attract hip people of Stockholm Client: Lennart Karlsson/ Baldakinen Year: -99 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative/Ricard Gustavsson Art direction: Marcel Struwer Interior design: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative Live: Nuthouse/Esbjörn Svensson Trio/Goran Kaifes Quartet
Solution: The jazz sound was blooming in Europe, artists were picking up and sampling the traditional jazz sounds. Parts’s idea was to give the mega night-club Sturecompagniet and Stockholm an alternative bar for people who wanted something more out of their night experiences. A bar and a stage were built. Young artists searching for the new jazzy sound were invited to play. Flyers and posters inspired by old blue note records were spread around town. From day one this was the best selling bar at Sturecompagniet, out of four different bars and dance floors. It became the hippest Stockholm hangout for several years to come. For the first time in forty years, people were dancing to Charlie Parker tunes until three o’clock in the morning.
OneHappyCloud Task: Restaurant concept Objective: To create a SwedishJapanese crossover restaurant concept Client: Masau Mochizuki Year: -97 Creative direction: Patric Andersson, Parts Creative/Johan Berg Art direction: Sweden Graphics Architects: Claesson/Koivisto/Rune Architects
Solution: Parts Creative’s idea was to create an international restaurant with a cutting edge interior design and food concept. Synergies and inspiration were found in the similarities between Swedish and Japanese clean minimalistic estetics´s and culture. With the idea to integrate the two food cultures (plain Swedish food/ Izakaya), a Japanese and a Swedish chef were employed to share experiences and put together a unique Swedish/Japanese crossover menu, with dishes like miso chicken with Swedish lingo berries. The young and newly graduated designer-trio Claesson/ Koivisto/ Rune was contacted. Thanks to their minimalistic interior design, CKR got their first big contract together with the brilliant design bureau “Sweden graphics”. Parts’s concept “One Happy Cloud” is until this day one of the most published restaurant concepts in design books and magazines all around the world.

Art Works “The bigger picture” If you put two straight lines across you get one of the simplest, most beautiful and powerful symbol in modern history - a cross. People live and die for it. This is the impact a visual symbol can have on us, if we believe in it! For Parts, visual expression is an extension of the core business value that is integrated trough the hole brand identity development process. If it’s done right the “bigger picture” transcends the brand’s values beyond physical colors and form. Parts creates a creative conceptual graphical idea and then develops these ideas with the best art directors in the business. Parts produces: Design-solutions for web and print, logotypes, posters, flyers, for lifestyle brands in the need of a beautiful and effective visual identity.

“Don’t speak in messages. Instead, spark conversations based on the unique requirements of each market segment and people within them. And please, don’t spin. We all hate when politicians do it. If you find yourself constistantly selling or spinning instead of evangelizing, you might be in the wrong place in your career.” Brian Solis, Putting the public back in public relations.
