WE ARE


WE  ARE

As a design team, our strength is the diversity we each bring with us from experience and understanding of both professional insight and strategic foresight in the design profession and design business development. 

Both of us work as mentors for students in design and innovation and act in ERFA groups within continuing education and sustainability at Design Denmark.

Helle Brechling Johansen, grounded in the industrial design field, has extensive experience of acting in all levels of design- and development processes, as well as working with product development and products' circular lifecycle within the fashion and interior industry.

 

Recently she has worked with design processes at more strategic levels to define new touchpoints through circular design processes to achieve design- and business development for several design companies.

 

Tenna Hansen, grounded in the graphic and communicative design field, has extensive experience with project and team management and has worked with brand development, visual storytelling as well as strategy and implementation within the fashion and lifestyle industry.

 

Recently she has been responsible for circular design and strategy development within exclusive packaging where Cradle to Cradle certifications was the goal.
