To do design consultancy or be a design advisor it takes more than theoretical knowledges. To really understand the theories, technics and tools, you must have practical experience.
I have been working with innovation and design, both as a designer and as a consultant. I have been part of the processes form ideation to finished product and I have business knowhow and commercial understanding from both large corporates and small startups.
Being a Design Advisor and teaching at KADK’s design school, have given me experience on how to advise and help a design process forward. To quickly understand a concept and give a balanced feedback or feedforward can bring out the best in people and concepts. Misunderstanding or neglecting concepts or people can in the counterpart be fatal.
It takes a good designer to spot a good designer. I also have experience in recruiting, and I can help when you want to find the right designer for the job.
Working with BANG & OLUFSEN and HARMAN International have given me insights to big corporates, and how to work with innovation and agile teems in big complex projects. I have a broad perspective on innovation strategies, and I can advise and do consultancy on various levels in how to lead the organization in a more creative or innovative direction.
