EmbCode is a software development house in Gothenburg that specialise in building hight quality embedded products. We’ve started a long term cooperation half a year ago where I’m helping with project management and marketing.
We meet every other thursday morning to follow up the last sprint (the last 2 weeks of work), estimate and prioritise the next. And sometimes we discuss the long term goals for EmbCode.
We’ve also been working together in parallell with creating an AD for the electronics magazine Elektor, creating product logos, designeng product boxes, a new web site and getting started on the social web.
We needed a simple way to organise the work so we started out with a simple post it system on a white board
The half page AD that we’ve made for Elektor. A lot of work went into defining the most important company and product values.

We still think it’s important that you feel that you bought something (physical). You can get the EmbCode products as both downloads and boxes.
All the products have their own logo. We also associate all products with a color.
They are currently selling their products via market places (e.g. Blocket) and this site is a pilot that will work as a complement for some products. They wanted to start out as simple and lightweight as possible and extend it once they know their needs better.
