    we speak here, and to our clients, is how we speak on external channels. We are a punk digital agency, not McKinzey. A motley crew run by creativity and emotions. Let that show in the way we speak. We can however stick to some simple rules in our different outputs: Twitter - Be on point and direct. Facebook - Keep it short and snappy. Linked In - Mature and businesslike. Responsibilities Questions? Ask Fredrik

    have a solid branding in place soon. From profile pictures, logos, manners to colours, design language and the general feel of each platform. Responsibilities Questions? Ask Micke
