Nokiafirka is the first commercial spin-off from irkafirka.
The Finnish multinational corporation asked us how we could apply our apparently memetic doodling to their Nokia Conversations blog. We responded with caution, aware we were in danger of transgressing irkafirka rule 6, “If we stop enjoying it, we’ll stop.”
For this reason we decided to take the irkafirka model and create a separate channel, providing content that would be recognisable to our fans on Twitter, but for Nokia’s niche, but by no means small, audience.
The writers of The Official Nokia Blog wanted to give something back to their readers, and to create a little buzz, we launched with a flurry of doodles based on what people were saying during the mobile giant’s annual event, Nokia World. We intend to continue from there with weekly updates based on comments on their blog. We only hope that the readers will get wind of our activities and infuse their tech-talk with references to pelicans, greenfly and other such nonsense.
Here are some of the highlights from Nokia World:
