Interesting concept. The site won't be particularly entertaining though as there are mostly good things to say about Finland, which is indeed a beautiful country.

A really good, unusual idea. Let's have more sites like this.

Hmm nice idea but I think it needs to be worked out a bit more, get more concrete. Also, they need a proper webdesigner.

I beg to differ. Design is excellent.

Really? Just the sight of that +12 button ALONE makes me shiver. It's like one of those free stock templates.

yes, fine idea, but the better web design is needed

What a cool idea! This could also work for other countries and companies. I haven't seen anything like this before. Companies might do this, but not publicly. Really like the simple, clean design of the site, too.

Nice one, very different. Wonder if this was part of a campaign, or "for fun"? Design is very functional, not trying too hard which isn't the point of the site. Looks easy to use and navigate. This is a good idea which I hope the agency takes further. There is a lot more potential in this. Would love to see a live feed of news it gathers.

Quite nice idea, but as a Swede I give them a couple of minus points.
