Fabric badge designed by KOSK (Siri Skillgate and Andreas Kojcevski Hansson)
Do not eat skewers eel is about Scanian delicacies and depicts the skewer cake and the eel. The eel is endangered, the skewer cake is not. It seems like a bad idea to eat eel and a good idea to eat skewer cake. Take advantage of what is available and do not eat things that are about to disappear.

SPOK SOUVENIR COLLECTION 2018
SPOK Souvenir collection consists of 10 locally designed and produced contemporary and sustainable souvenirs
A Scanian municipality gives away thermos cups made on the other side of the earth, shoulders are heated by plastic blankets with moose print from the tourist office and tea is drunk from generic cups with yellow-red flag prints. Gifts and souvenirs often have a dubious quality in terms of design, materials and production.
In Skåne, there are plenty of both fantastic designers and competent manufacturers, and SPOK saw an opportunity to develop more sustainable souvenir alternatives. SPOK therefore issued an open call in October 2017 with the invitation to submit proposals for objects that could fit in a contemporary Scanian souvenir collection - over a hundred proposals were received. A jury selected ten projects that received SEK 10,000 to develop their idea for.
- Terese Alstin - Developer design area, Form Design / Center
- Anki Dahlin - Project manager for the museums' spring meeting 2018 (former head of Culture in Lund)
- Marianne Grenander - Responsible for the gift program Region Skåne
- Jenny Nordberg - Initiator of the souvenir collection and designer and founder of SPOK
- Helene Persson - Responsible for the gift program Malmö City
The collection is for sale in the Form / Design Center's store and can be ordered directly from the respective designers. This investment is possible thanks to funding from the County Administrative Board of Skåne.
