About the event

Executive Director at Denmark's leading design agency Kontrapunkt, Rikke Nalepa Olesen, explores the trend of purpose branding. How can a brand create value with a unique and differentiating "why", and how do you make a purpose come to life across the entire brand experience from visual identity and typography to actions and services?

Rikke will also touch upon the subject of brand architecture and explain why it pays off to focus your efforts and brand building on few but strong brands without compromising on flexibility and innovation.
