Meet Frederikke Kaysen

Multimedia designer with strategy consulting and business background

I tell stories through illustrations, animations, webshops, words. My love languages are slick color combinations and structure.

Voices for cartoons was where my professional journey started in 2003 – as a child. As a way of growing up professionally, I spent the first half of my 20s as a consultant in Maersk doing strategies, spreadsheets, synergies and so on.

My favorite thing in corporate was creating convincing storylines and turning complex messages into easily digestable PowerPoint presentations…which wasn’t exactly the job. So I turned the ship to let passion be the guiding star: Passion for colors, cartoons, design, motion graphics and the quest towards the most compelling way of telling a story.

Even though I work on the creative side today, there is still a place in my heart for a structured workflow and data driven approach.
