CIID Consulting would like to take a moment to tell you about two of our great new hires. In January, Francesca Desmarais joined as an Interaction Designer and Anders Højmose as our new Design Technologist. Both Anders and Francesca have a blend of great design thinking and prototyping skills.
Francesca joins CIID after four years working in environmental design. She was the Strategy and Research Lead for Architecture 2030, a top U.S. think tank in low-carbon architecture and was the Director of the 2030 Challenge for Products, an initiative to reduce the embodied carbon of building products. Francesca grew up on five different continents and has a bachelors in International Political Economy and a masters in Interaction Design.
Anders has a background from the Interaction Design Programme at CIID and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts – School of Design. He kicked off his creative career in the media and advertising industry, but has spent the past years working with different technology driven startups. He loves tinkering with microcontrollers and web-services and has a great interest in creative ways of utilising new technologies.
