Per Gessle’s web design company lays off employees

Written by tevensso on November 27, 2002 to .

STOCKHOLM - The web design company Famestudios, owned in part by Per Gessle along with Bonnier, “IT-Guru” Christer Sturmark, and ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus, has fired their project managers and programmers. The reason is, according to the company’s CEO, Ludvig Werner, an isolation of core business.

 “We won’t manage the web productions ourselves anymore but outsource it to other companies. We will focus entirely on digital events,” says Ludvig Werner to Dagens Media, a trade publication.

 In this area of digital events, Famestudios offers, among other things, consultative services for interactive events that can be connected to physical events.

 Famestudios earned a modest 1.5 million Swedish crowns last year, while they, at the same time, lost 6 million.

 Among their clients are the record companies behind Roxette and ABBA, whose official sites are designed by Famestudios.

It seems Telecom & IT crisis has reached Fame Studios. Thousands of engineers, designers and programmers are being fired all around Europe, FameStudios is just another one that bites the dust.
I can’t say that this piece of news has surprised me, specially because quite probably i’ll become one of these unemployed engineers in a couple of months! :( Hey, Jud, let’s found a brand new consulting group! Any other wanna join? :)

I am thinking!!! Eric always knows what he and his team is doing!


Hi Agus,

The crisis you mentionned is similar here in Canada. I have graduated lately and guess what, it’s so damn hard to find a job! I’m not a telecom engineer, but it affects me in some way...

Bonne journée! Have a nice day!

@Rich-UK: I totally agree with you.
I thought my computer was not working well, but now I know there’s something wrong with the website.

Dear Bunny,
