Jakob Kahlen

I’m a digital Creative Director based in Copenhagen Denmark. I’ve been working with digital design, concept and brand development since 1996. I have a strategic and user-centered approach to my work and I take pride in bridging design and technology in solutions that create value for both clients and users.

I’ve helped major brands and organizations make succesful transitions from strategy to execution in the field of digital media. The list of clients include Victoria’s Secret, Google, Sesame Street, Playstation, IKEA, Ericsson, Carlsberg, Magnum Photos, Pandora, Telia, Kappa, HAY, Flügger, TDC, Politiken, The Royal Dansih Theater, The Danish Parlament. My relations with these clients have given me a solid digital foundation in an international playingfield and have graced me with a number of honors and awards along the way.

I’m currently Creative Director and Partner at Hello Monday. Hello Monday is a independent Digital Creative Agency with offices in Copenhagen, New York and Aarhus. Our practice is built on the premise that it is possible to make a creative playground rather than a production factory. Our playful approach has attracted some of the worlds biggest brands and has made us the David to rival even the biggest Goliaths of the industry.

Apart from solving commissioned work I’m an external lecturer and advisory- board member of The Danish School of Media and Journalism. I am also a board member & Chairman of the Website Jury at Creative Circle, the national Danish advertising award.
