What I do
I’m passionate about both strategic and design aspects of branding. I advocate a holistic approach where design support a company’s strategy and goals. Successful design needs a clear direction, and the direction a purpose. I’m accustomed to manage creative teams in marketing and product development so that all design outputs are pixel perfect and on brand. My background as a graphic designer and retoucher have established an eye for detail and hands-on design skills.
What I want
I thrive in companies that’s on a mission to change or challenge something, managed with a entrepreneurial mindset. Where most things is in constant development and arising challenges quickly can shape a new course of action.
My (design) beliefs
Design is iterative
It’s best to launch it, test it and improve it. A somewhat painful insight for a detail oriented person as myself, but something I’ve acknowledged with time. Even if good design spring from a process, it can’t be allowed to take over. It’s about framing the problem and shaping the solution.
Design is strategy
Design should always connect to a company’s purpose, goal and strategy.
In a corporate setting I integrate both the inside-out perspective (a company’s experts, resources, knowledge, assets, etc) and outside-in view (user needs, industry development, competitive environment, etc). I then translate these perspectives into meaningful design solutions.
Design is collaborative
Good design is often a result of different perspectives, something that is easier to achieve by having an inclusive design process.
