Leading the Copenhagen office on its growth journey
Katja has been a key team member since she joined EGGS in 2018. In a team of two with Ulla Sommerfelt, Katja has for the past two years led the EGGS Denmark office as Creative Director and Ulla as the Country Manager and the CEO of EGGS Design.
According to Ulla, it’s a natural next step for Katja to take over the country manager position. Katja shows excellent leadership skills with compassion and genuine care for people. Moreover, her solid design experience and track record serve as a great source of inspiration for the team. Katja is a regarded public speaker, lectures in design at Denmark’s leading design schools and holds a position as a board member of Design Denmark, Ulla shares.
Ulla will continue as the CEO for EGGS Design, devoting her time to further developing and growing EGGS, currently with 125 creatives across five offices in Norway and Denmark.
“Katja has the perfect fit for the role as the Country Manager for EGGS Denmark. She is a seasoned design professional with great leadership skills, genuine compassion, a profound understanding of EGGS’ culture and excellent comprehension of industry innovation needs .” , Ulla Sommerfelt, CEO EGGS Design
EGGS Denmark has grown significantly over the past year, breaking even during the pandemic crises. With Copenhagen being an acclaimed international hub for trade in Europe, Katja sees significant growth potential for EGGS’ global client base.
“Denmark is the perfect location for expanding our services within design-driven innovation to continental Europe. Danish industry will, of course, continue to be our key market, but we are experiencing many possibilities to innovate with European businesses. Working with companies within the energy and maritime industries on their processes within digital transformation and the green shift are two examples. ” shares Egmose.
EGGS Denmark already has a portfolio of international clients, such as Alfa Laval, Novozymes, Maersk Tankers and Yara International, and Danish clients like The Municipality of Copenhagen, Port Esbjerg and The Rockwool Foundation.

The EGGS Denmark designers are currently facilitating innovation processes through partnerships.
“We help our clients solve complex problems through collaboration with other stakeholders. Complex problems, like the ones related to the green shift, digital transformation or challenges related to social impact, require collaboration and partnerships between several stakeholders. We contribute by facilitating these partnerships and dialogues applying approaches based on design thinking and design craft so that we together can create effective and sustainable solutions,” Katja explains.
