T Brand Studio

T Brand Studio, the custom content studio within the advertising department of The New York Times, commissioned Blue Chalk Media to produce a series of films profiling “future-ready cities” for its clients Dell and Intel.

For this film, Blue Chalk traveled to Stockholm, Sweden, to find out how a country on the edge of the arctic circle has created a thriving economy with much to offer the rest of the globe. With a national population no greater than North Carolina, Swedish businesses must grow beyond the domestic market and think globally. Stockholm has succeeded by encouraging collaboration, designing innovation and embracing technology as a trade route to the world.

The film is part of a paid post titled, “Future Ready Economies,” featured on The post includes an interactive list of the world’s most “future ready” cities as defined by a Harvard/MIT economic study commissioned by Dell.
