At Triagonal we are happy to welcome these four vibrant people: Jonathan Pagaard, Steinar Valade-Amland, Axel Nygaard and Louise Kristiansen
From the left:
Jonathan Pagaard holds a MSc degree in Design & Innovation from the Technical University of Denmark. As Design Engineer, Jonathan works in the intersection between design of products and services, from early concepts to final designs. His specialties lay within user research, concept development and his strong ability to express himself visually.
“Wayfinding is a niche that I find very interesting. When designed properly it is completely unnoticed. With a background in Design & Innovation I have a systematic mindset and a keen eye for details. At Triagonal I look forward to joining different development processes with the rest of the team.”
Head of Strategy and Business Development
Steinar Valade-Amland has worked in marketing and export management for about a decade before entering the design industry. First as a director of a highly acclaimed brand design agency, then as CEO of the Danish trade organization for designers, Danish Designers. Furthermore, he has acted as a project manager of an EU-funded project, as independent strategist and business development consultant, lecturer and author. He is chairman of the Norwegian-Danish Chamber of Commerce and Culture.
“Having followed Triagonal from its early days, and having had the pleasure of working with the people here as an external consultant for the last three years, I now look forward to being part of the day-to-day operations.”
Project and Process Coordinator
Axel Nyegaard holds a degree in Business Economics from Roskilde University and has worked in organisations of all shapes and sizes. As a Project coordinator with a business background Axel will work on optimizing Triagonal’s financial and project management systems.
“My goal is to create the best possible overview of the projects, while striving to improve and optimize the administrative processes at Triagonal. Because: Minimizing the team’s administrative efforts will leave more time available to create better wayfinding for all of us.”
Louise Kristiansen studies Medical Anthropology at the University of Copenhagen, due to graduate in January 2020. Previously, Louise has worked on different research projects investigating how the physical surroundings in hospitals affect patients’ experiences of hospitalisation.
“Trough a mix of qualitative and quantitative user-centred methods, I will aim to prove the effect of Triagonal’s wayfinding systems in hospitals. I always strive to make solid solutions with the strongest effect for user, and I am intrigued by the way architecture and physical environments affect and shape our social life.”
