Katinka Bukh is a playful, award-winning creative director, who transforms your brand with strong, beautiful design
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.
