Vildersbøll

The goal of the strategy and identity for Vildersbøll was to convey that the ceramic products are created out of passion for form and function. The products are minimalistic, with clean lines and tight curves and are created with an eye for detail and focus on function.
By letting the products speak for themselves in an immersive and experiental site design driven by large and beautiful photos the strategy and brand promise was kept – Vildersbøll, carefully crafted in Copenhagen.

About me
Professionally:

I am a very curious human being, a problem solver and a passionate creative with 12+ years of experience in the digital, design and advertising industry. I believe that creativity without insights can become purely aesthetics, and insights without creativity can have little effect.
I believe creativity has a direct impact on conjuring emotions. I also firmly believe in the effect emotions can have in creating lasting impressions and ROI.

Personally:

On a personal level I also believe that by unifying the mind and body through various strategies it is possible to generate metacognition and thereby becoming more aware of one self and the environment you are in. This isn't only empowering for oneself in its stress relief, but also good for business. In my experience to have a more relaxed, sharp and focused mind and body leads to better interactions and communication with people on almost all levels.
