Hollie Baigent is an Industrial Designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Born and bred in Sydney, Australia she is the all-in-one package: commercially savvy, social entrepreneur, design thinker, strategist, visual communicator, marketer, builder and team-worker. She has experience in consumer, medical, furniture, product service systems and design strategy.
As an energetic, creative and empathetic designer I am interested in transforming innovative ideas into humanized products and services that make a real social impact. Human behaviour, interactions and culture fascinate me combined with my love for simple clean line design and visual communication. I strongly believe good design is a catalyst for change.
