With a diverse background and especially, experience as an Interaction Designer, Vanessa uses empathy to understand a company's challenges and to start from a place of identity to develop their future strategies.

Vanessa uses a mix of tools and strategies, depending on what the company's needs and challenges are, to concurrently explore their current challenges and their future potential.

She gains inspiration from her work with thought leaders such as the Copenhagen Institute for Interaction Design, the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies, and the Danish Design Center and brings these learnings to customers to help them develop a diverse range of tools for each challenge.

Prototyping is a vital part of working with Vanessa, as she insists upon a less talk, more action approach wherein companies prototype future strategies, products and services today.
