Career profiles

Once you graduate as a designer you will be faced with a world of opportunities.

Depending on your study programme you can choose to work with e.g. fashion, jewellery, shoes, interior and graphic design, and perhaps you will be able to land a job at e.g. ECCO, LEGO or Kopenhagen Fur, which are some of Design School Kolding's regular collaboration partners.

But you can also use your training to get a job in professions that you do not usually associate with design.

We have hand-picked a selection of designers trained at Design School Kolding in order to give you a sense of the unexpected turn that your career can take. For instance, you can read about Birkir, who is employed at Kolding Waste Water, Sidsel Skov Kragsnæs, who works for Silkeborg Municipality, and Pernille Farup Egetoft, who works at the Libraries of Vesthimmerland.
