I have a professional background in advertising and marketing from two worldly reknowned agencies: MediaCom and GREY, as project managaer and account manager: I thrive in busy, ambitious and creative environments, with a diverse palette of people. I have an academic background from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, the IT University of Copenhagen and University of the Arts London.

 

My process is characterised by structure and organisation, however without compromising the exploratory essence of a creative process. I understand the importance of agile navigation from brief to generation of insights, to core problem identification, to concept development and to actual implementation and evaluation. I navigate flexibly between abstract and concrete levels throughout the design process; and see wicked problems as intriguing challenges.

 

I work very visually, and am very adept with a pen - from sketching personas, prototyping communication models or systemic flowcharts. Contrary, being very organised I am also fond of to do-lists, Excel charts and timetables - to ensure deadlines, client criteria and KPI's are met. I am highly trained in client management, as well as implementation of client values in the process and aligning with their business model. I have developed strong project management competences due to being used to busy creative environments in advertising, and I am aware of the components of a successful iterative, strategic and creative process.
