Crime Medicine

In recent years a wave of counterfeit prescription drugs has swept the Swedish market. Many of these drugs are ordered via the Internet, by people who believe they are perfectly legitimate, cheaper alternatives to approved prescription drugs. A large percentage of these so-called drugs are useless placeboes. Even worse, some are actually poison. The Swedish Drug Administration decided to spread the word.

Crime Medicine, an online campaign produced by Perfect Fools for Granath Euro RSCG, builds on an interactive documentary format to educate the Swedish public about this new danger. The campaign has been hugely successful among its target audience with more than 400,000 unique visitors (nearly 5% of the Swedish population) and 3.3 years of video viewed in its first month online.

BBC Survivors Interactive

BBC Survivors Interactive is the online adventure game companion for Survivors, the new BBC One drama.

Perfect Fools was responsible for concept development, design, programming, launch and ongoing updating of Survivors Interactive and filmed much of the site’s non-series video content, all in close cooperation with the development team at the BBC.

The online adventure game and reality challenge confronts visitors with real choices based on key series themes. What type of survivor each visitor turns out to be is determined by how they choose, just like the TV characters in the series. Survivors Interactive mixes rich live action video, dynamic motion design, still images, music, atmospheric sound, smart technology and more to create a lush and exciting online experience. The site mirrors each episode and extends the entertainment experience for viewers while also attracting new viewers. It provides a unique, multi-linear storytelling space that builds directly on the key characters and themes presented in the series.

PF trades Queen for King

October 30th, 2008, Perfect Fools

It might look like a small step on the map, right around the corner in fact. But for us it was a big leap.

We loved our old Stockholm office on Drottninggatan (Queen Street). But after 2 years there we just plain didn’t fit any more. So this weekend we finally moved into bigger digs on Kungsgatan (King’s Street). Kungsgatan 27, to be exact. More space, more meeting rooms — and yes we’re not too proud to admit our joy at this detail — more bathrooms :)

The overall verdict so far? Change is good!

Nokia Unloader

No-one likes boring documents — be it an overly complex spreadsheet, a dull presentation or a pointless memo — but everyone likes exciting journeys!

The Unloader combines these two extremes through first letting you upload your least favorite document, and then inviting you to watch as it undergoes some unloading treatment that is far from boring. Perfect Fools produced this campaign for farfar to promote the Nokia Eseries — mobile phones that can view, edit and print any attachment (boring or not).
