Pearlfisher joins forces with prominent Danish designers to establish a new team in Copenhagen
We’re thrilled to announce that Pearlfisher is joining forces with prominent Danish designers, led by Jesper von Wieding and David Ramskov, to establish our third multidisciplinary design team in Copenhagen.
Looking to extend our experience working with some of the world’s most desirable Challenger and Iconic brands, as well as strengthen our relationships with existing Nordic clients, the opening of our third studio will enable Pearlfisher to bring our unique 3 Studio approach of Futures, Strategy and Design to brands in the Scandinavian region.
Pearlfisher’s Founding Partner & Chief Creative Officer, Jonathan Ford, said, “We pride ourselves on both great design and building successful long-term relationships and we believe that when the two come together, something incredibly special can happen. Jesper von Wieding, who will head up the new team, is a talented and passionate designer and is a close personal friend of Pearlfisher’s and mine. We felt that now was the right time to take our friendship into a more formal working relationship and establish a new team in the Nordic region to create the bold, lucid and original work that Pearlfisher is so famous for.”
He continued, “And, as other design agencies now look to open in the East and America, we are excited to be making the unexpected move to a new home in Scandinavia – one of the world’s most highly reputed centres for design excellence.”
The team in Copenhagen will be comprised of Jesper Von Wieding, who will assume the role of Strategic Creative Director. An award-winning designer with over 25 years industry experience working with some of the world’s leading brands and agencies, Jesper also serves on the board of the trade association for Danish Design companies – Design Denmark, as well as Creative Circle – the biggest annual advertising, design, and digital award in Denmark. David Ramskov, who will assume the position of Managing Director, brings over 10 years experience in the digital design industry with particular expertise in e-commerce and transactional digital innovation. The other members of the team will include Thomas Kjær as Creative Director, Tim Larcombe as Strategy Director and Tobias Wandrup as Head of Industrial Design.
Jesper von Wieding commented, “We are thrilled to be joining forces with Jonathan and the team as we have always admired the distinctive and bold approach that Pearlfisher takes with its extraordinary breadth of clients. And now we can work together to bring that offer to Scandinavia, making sure we are creating groundbreaking design for the region’s best loved brands.”
