About

… I realize, evolve and elevate brands with a simple, creative and strategic approach.

Louise B. Zastrow, Creative Director & Founder

“Creativity is intelligence having fun” – Albert Einstein

I craft, realize, evolve and elevate brands with creative and strategic development, the right execution of ideas and narratives. In other words, making the complex simple and clear or making what may seem insignificant, become significant is my business, whether it is creative direction and sparring, defining the right story for a new design or crafting a brand strategy and narrative.

I have a unique background and experience within design and online. Besides my independent work, I have most recently created the Brand foundation, DNA & design strategy for Danish design house GUBI while employed as their Creative Director – Brand & Communication. Previous to that I have been employed with the world-famous Danish design brand, Republic of Fritz Hansen for 5 years as International Product Manager & Market Relations Manager.

I’m also an external moderator, appointed by the Ministry of Science, Innovation & Higher Education for the International and Danish educational. programs; AP – Multimedia Design, AP – E-Designer, PBA – E-Concept Development & PBA – Design & Business. And I’m a mother and wife!

In the end, the goal should be to reach a simple, strong, positive, honest and beautiful solution to the problem or challenge at hand!

Always remember to ‘dot the i’

…the identity of dot the i is based on this and my favourite quote from Albert Einstein “Creativity is intelligence having fun”. In my logo, looking closely, you will find all the dot in the i’s carefully connected to a complete and unique shape.

Connecting the dots, gaining a new perspective and trusting your gut!  The work of dot the i is always a reflection of all this…

in short
