Katinka Bukh Design Branding

About me

With years of experience in leading creative positions within the media and branding industry, both in Denmark and abroad, I run my own design studio in Copenhagen.

Driven by passion, the graphic world is my playground. I delve deep into the core of your brand’s DNA and, with an inquisitive, strategic, and highly aesthetic approach, transform it into a strong, enduring design that will resonate with the essence of your brand.

Most recently, I undertook the project of thoroughly redesigning the Danish newspaper Weekendavisen, which, to my pride, earned the title of ‘World’s Best Designed Newspaper’ in 2021.
Before that, I designed the news media platform Zetland, which won ‘Best of Show’ in the digital category two years in a row in Scandinavia.

Thanks to my extensive and talented network, I am a creative octopus open to working on any design project, ranging from large-scale to petite. Additionally, I collaborate with in-house teams requiring consultancy or design services for both digital platforms and print.

Feel free to contact me for a coffee or a stroll in the park to discuss how I can help you connect with your audience by not only looking better… but great.

SERVICES: Design Consultancy, Brand Strategy, Digital Design, Communication Design, Newspaper Design, Visual Identity, Art Direction, and Talent Sourcing – Animation, Photography, and Illustration.

Katinka Bukh Design Branding


In a matter of a couple of years Katinka Bukh turned the looks of a sleepy outlet into a World class designed newspaper. She provided humor, sophistication, and a joie de vivre to the layout of the paper, and was on top of that an absolute feast to work with. Any paper, museum, publisher or firm in Denmark or abroad would be wise to hire Katinka.”
