Why UX? Podcast

Aug 15, 2018

Catherine grew up with a pencil in her hand. The born visual designer. She studied Industrial Design in Paris and at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts through Erasmus. She then came back to Copenhagen to learn Glass design and blowing techniques. Through a student job at a strategy consulting company, her eyes opened to User Research and as a graduate, the transition into, what we today call UX, came naturally.

Today she works at GenieBelt and deals with the realities of time constraints and of agile methodologies, how to work with and manage others and make the best of it in a company with high ambitions. She sees herself not just working with pieces but with the entire journey.

For the future, she strives to improve her management skills, because although we understand our users, design management is quite a different cup of tea.
