Many thanks to our Finnish TAF hosts – a visit to Rovio‘s Tampere Studio was successfully arranged (and yes – THAT Rovio!). We were warmly received by the head of studio and one of the producers. The producer wore huge yellow slippers (see a photo below) – and we were also asked to remove our shoes before entering their studio area, which is a clean, cozy but professional space.
I had a tin of this (to-be-honest-not-so-nice-sugary) branded soda drink:
We did have some serious discussion (for example I asked something about how Rovio envisioned their relationship with the HE sector) behind this door, though I think I was so excited that I behaved like a little girl visiting a theme park 🙂
