All of them great assets, representing skill sets which is in high demand from our clients these day. Castilnano Simoons will work as a UX designer. He has already several startups in his portfolio, and will continue to work with both Bad Norwegian and Oslo Brewing Co. Oda Midtlyng Klempe and Ann Viola Ulvin both have a Master from AHO in UX/servicedesign. Therese Jacobsen holds a Master of Science in Business from BI and will contribute with both planning and project managment in our service innovation projects.

Can sustainability be serious competitiveness?
In season 1 of TRIPPEL we developed new, green, sustainable concepts within the food industry. This week we're kicking off season 2, targeting the Textile industry. There is still a larger brief out there, and we believe that innovation methodology, design thinking and process design can help dissolve social tangles and create sustainable growth. TRIPPEL also has a mission to prove that sustainability can be serious competitiveness. Read more about this topic here and follow the project as we dig into the challenge.
