Joining Fjord - A hub of convergence
After a sabbatical traveling, being with the kids, building Lego and sailing it is time to return to industry. Time off gave me lots of opportunity to think where things are heading. We wanted to stay in London, like many we think it is the capital of the world or at least an amazing melting pot of trends and culture. I wanted to work on convergence with great people. This time this opportunity was closer to me than I thought. When Fjord asked if I wanted to join their board I instantly accepted. Here was a fantastic group of people working exactly in the domain of convergence. Fjord does mobile and web design and services for leading players in the industry. Over the course of our we realized that there was plenty of scope to so I joined as a partner and will spend the bulk of my time there. A small proportion of my time I will spend advising start-ups or players on product and mobile strategies as well as design. At Fjord I will help grow the business, do business development, some strategic consulting and look after their venturing activities. Their first spin-off Flirtomatic is already a good success in in the emerging lifestyle community space, generating more than 90M page view on mobile web in UK alone.
What makes Fjord truly unique is its understanding of convergence. It was founded by trio Mike Beeston, Mark Curtis and Olof Schybergson. Mike is a veteran of the advertising industry and founder of what became Razorfish London and Mark is a pioneer in the interactive space and the CEO of Flirtomatic Olof a design genius, former creative director of Razorfish London. The Fjord team really understand the context behind different screens, the dynamic of mobile, the value of real-estate. This was why I hired them to help on Lifeblog and Yahoo Go 2.0. They have an office in the hearth of London's Soho and Helsinki and soon opening up in Berlin. Looking forward to working with you guys. So if you are looking for kick-ass design look no further ;-)
Good to hear that you are keeping busy:-) and in good company as well;-)
