Thomas Gamst, Managing Director, welcomes Rikke on board the management team, ‘Rikke is a natural leader, and her analytic and visionary approach, together with her drive and ability to get everyone on board, makes her ideal to accelerate our transformation. We’ll be expanding our design core with new creative minds and skills, and broaden our view of what design can accomplish to create relevant and holistic brand experiences for our clients.’
Rikke Nalepa Olesen adds, ‘I am convinced that being a design agency is more relevant than ever. Today, the strongest brands are built on innovative products and services that are meaningful and improving life. They deliver across all touchpoints and answer to moments that really matter to people. That’s essentially how designers have always worked, and it’s now our job to fully leverage our legacy in order to build future-proof and valuable brand experiences together with our clients - and not just design their logos.’
Rikke joined Kontrapunkt in 2007 and has been the lead strategist behind major branding projects for clients like IKEA, Hitachi, DR, DFDS and Copenhagen Airport. In 2015 she became Partner and Brand Strategy Director.
Together with Thomas Gamst and Design Director Bo Linnemann, she will make up Kontrapunkt’s Executive Management Team.
