Some things happen by chance. Last year, I was traveling with the Saab team on the dealer tour, we were guests in Mainz. The Saab center The Scholl family welcomed us warmly, and during a tour of the building, Mr. Wiener, responsible for sales and customer service, gave me an original Troll sticker from the 60 years.
A historical troll does not stick to the Saab. Or? After all, the sticker is already good 50 years old and thus older than the blogger. He was put aside for the next few months and kept sleeping in my desk. But he was, typical Troll, always somehow present in thought! Actually, my family thought, we would have to print new troll stickers, starting from the original.
The project started a few months ago. The reprint should be as close as possible to the original and without destroying the historical sticker. And it soon turned out that the pale troll on the Internet, surprise, has little to do with the original. The Ur-Troll from the 50s or 60s was a brightly colored fellow, and the more or less good reprints were probably made by colleagues who had been bleached from the sun.
The result of our "Saab archeology" is impressive! The troll has arrived in the digital age and can now, digitized as a vector graphic, live on for many years. Now the way is open for lots of troll ideas!
And he's already haunting us in the head! Not only us ... our print shop is also enthusiastic and the offices are full of trolls. Trolls on doors, trolls on windows. There will be Troll bumper stickers, the prototypes have already been printed and the first pre-series copies are already on the way with the SaabBlog.net team. We are also working on a keychain with the troll. Trolls on mugs or shirts. Why not? The little guy is as lively as the community itself!
The story goes on. More troll messages follow!
