Mads Kunø is a Senior Strategist at Manyone, the strategy-design hybrid. He is based in Aarhus, but he stretches his work across multiple Manyone offices. Through his years in the industry, he has built a broad range of experiences within different design disciplines, clients and industries. He is a designerly jack-of-all-trades but a master of some. He has a cross-disciplinary approach to solving complex problems: he helps businesses across the entire design and strategy process with a particular interest in complex systemic problems.
Mads's approach to design is built on the foundation of a graphic designer but topped with a bachelor's degree in Information Science, and then a master's degree in Interactive Digital Media. His educational background combines the best from design execution with the best from design strategy, giving him a unique design toolkit.
His work experience ranges from being a freelance designer, a consultant, and a designer in different larger agencies, such as media agencies, development companies and strategic consultancies. This mix of experiences contributes to a broad understanding of businesses, and their strategic usage and execution of digital products and services. To sum up, Mads is a full-blooded hybrid strategic designer, driven by complexity and an inherent curiosity for optimising how things work.
