Trine Bekkersgaard Stark

Trine Bekkersgaard Stark

Assistant Lecturer in Communication Design & Media at (KEA) Copenhagen School of Design and Technology

Trine’s approach to the design process to have the designer understand the art of failure and staying with that failure long enough to turn it around. Design is creativity, prototyping, empathy, engagement, and a lot of hard work but fun at the same time.
Her professional focus and research methodology is to understand the role of designers in the broad sense of the design concept. In her work and teaching, she is constantly trying to find ways that will help designers identify and understand their part in the design process. Because of her own background as a practitioner and an academic, she finds her methods always connecting to both theory and practice, never one without the other. She have spent most of her professional career working with visual storytelling in magazine design, campaigns, and visual identity. Trine has 16 years of experience in the design industry and 2,5 year experience as a Lecturer of Communication Design and Media. She is educated as a graphic designer and hold a Master in Visual Culture and a BA in Art History from the University of Copenhagen.
