Say hi to our new UX Designer, Katrine Holst

Our team is growing, yayyy. That’s awesome! And this time we say hello to our new inQvator, Katrine Holst – our new UX Designer. Lucky us!

In this interview, you’ll get to know more about Katrine and her new role. Wanna know what her main tasks will be and where to find her on a day off from work? Sure. Here we go 😀

#1: Hola Katrine, you’re now a part of our iQ-family – we’re pretty excited about that. And we can’t wait to get to know you better. Want to tell a thing or two about yourself?

Hola! I’m 28 years old and I live at Vesterbro with my boyfriend Mikkel. We bought an apartment in February that needed a quite larger renovation than we had anticipated. So, we’ve spent the past six months doing carpenter work – and as neither of us is very handy, we have been watching a looot of Youtube videos and have become experts in ‘trial and error’. 
Education-wise, I have a bachelor’s degree in Media Science from SDU and a master’s degree in Digital Design and Communication from ITU.

#2: You’re started in a new position as inQvation’s UX designer. What will your main tasks be?

I’m here to help build and test different ideas and to ensure, that design decisions are grounded in insights derived from users when making new products come alive in inQvation. This means doing user research, identifying problems, building and testing prototypes, and in the end creating a product that adds value to people’s lives.

#3: What were you doing before you joined inQvation?

Before I joined inQvation, I was working as a freelance UX Designer while finishing my master’s degree. Before that, I worked as a UX consultant designing products, mainly mobile applications, for both start-ups and corporate organizations.

#4: Yayyyy – you have a day off from work. Where to find you?

I wish I had a hobby just so it was easier for me to answer questions like this 😉 But, when it’s sunny weather, there is a good chance of finding me right behind Fisketorvet near the water with a towel and a bag of peas. Later that day, you will probably find me hanging out with friends at a bar or a restaurant. If the weather doesn’t allow for such a day, I could also be at home binge-watching reality tv or action movies from the ’90s. And on a lucky day, you can find me in the boxing club at Valdemarsgade.

#5: Ten years ago, who did you think you would be now?

Hmm, that is a tough question. I don’t really think I’ve ever had a 10-year plan. But ten years ago I was 18 years old and looking very much forward to the freedom awaiting when finishing high school. So I think, I hoped I would be traveling the world, living that day-to-day kind of lifestyle. ‘Young, wild and free’, you know….

#6: Aaaaaand it’s time for the most asked question in our inQvator spotlight interviews: What do you look the most forward to being part of inQvation?

I look forward to becoming a part of a lot of start-up journeys. To me, a start-up journey equals a dynamic work environment, a lot of passionate people and the opportunity to make a difference. And of course, I look forward to getting to know all the other inQvators and to become a part of the coolest team in town.
