Is IKEA coming out of the closet?

Published by on december 8, 2014

In our last newsletter we released the idea that Ikea should make clothes. It became a viral global hit with up to five articles a day, including in The Guardian and the Daily Mirror.

Along with Jack Yan, publisher of the fashion magazine Lucire I wrote the press release which became more viral than we could have hoped. Many has built on and took the idea further and now there are even ads created for IKEA Fashion. It was really flattering when The Daily Mirror has recommended IKEA to contacts us in order to further grow the idea. We have spawned the idea, however it is up to IKEA to decide if they should come out of the closet or not.

When you LIKE us we LOVE you back

Published by on december 2, 2014

When we have started our site in 1999 we forgot to include the classical ”like” button- maybe it was not so much in use back then… However, we now have realised that we had missed the potential of our millions of visitors who would have liked us and spread the word about our site to their friends.

’Love’ is a strong word, however ’like’ is even stronger!
Why? Because ’like’ is simply telling the world that you love to like something. And if you LIKE us we will simply LOVE you back.
