Ida for the win!

Jan 20. 2020

Three days, seven schools, seven representatives, one winner!

Our very talented trainee, Ida was chosen to represent her school in the yearly 'DM i Skills' (Skills Denmark) in the category Graphic Designer. And wouldn't you know - she took home first prize!

It's a huge honour to have won, and it's something I can write on my resume. But also, I am so proud of myself! I had hoped it would lean in my direction, but you never know what the client or judges are looking for. During the three-day competition, I couldn't see what the others were doing or how they were doing, so it was a very nervy experience. I am just so happy it turned out the way it did!

The assignment? Create a visual identity for CopenHill, and sadly, because of rights issues, we can't show pictures of Ida's work (other than the photos below from her midway presentation).

We are however incredibly proud of Ida and of course happy to be able to call her part of the Kontrapunkt family.

DM i Skills (Skills Denmark), is a yearly competition where more than 300 students from all over the country compete in more than 45 individual disciplines within their field of training. Everyone from hairdressers, carpenters, watchmakers and chefs, e.g. can attend (if selected by their school), and what they all have in common is their high skillset within their field.

The three-day event ended with a ceremony on Saturday, celebrating the winners of each discipline. Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen did the honour of presenting each winner with their award.
