With Design i want to solve bigger problems than small everyday problems. I want to help people in need of help and solid design solutions. My main interest lies in solving a problem through function, form and material, making a good sustainable design solution and polishing the idea to perfection fitting it in to a world of human beings. My philosophy in design is that working with industrial design we have a responsibility always to choose the most sustainable solution in both material and production, and to make sure that the design we produce is solving the problem it was created to solve sufficiently. In my design process I work closely with people and user groups to get the right design to the right people. I am a Danish industrial designer with a master’s degree in Industrial Design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine arts, school of Design. I moved to Norway/Oslo in October 2015 to work at Hansen Protection in Moss. I worked at Hansen Protection in a 3 month project assignment for further development of my master’s exam project from the royal academy of fine arts school of design, Thermo-AID. I am currently working with smaller projects in Fontél Design. I am now looking for work in Oslo. I am not afraid to move to new opportunities and I have lived and worked in both China and Norway before. I have a great ability to adapt to places, people and projects but I never compromise on good design. I have a sharp sense of logic and a passion for aid, first aid and medical design, a passion to create design that solves a real problem. I am a positive, diplomatic person with good people qualities, and I work well independently and well in a group. I am eager to learn more about design, but also about the problems i am assigned to solve and the wisdom from working across other professions and diciplines.
