Founder of WDV STUDIO Carina Juul and Oskar Stokholm now part of Stagis


Founder and Creative Director of WDV STUDIO Carina Juul and Concept Developer Oskar Stokholm have joined Stagis. Their move is part of the consultancy’s growth plan for 2016 and the two new members of the Stagis team will strengthen our commercial and lifestyle profile.

”We share a dream about unfolding brand and design solutions on all our clients’ digital platforms, physical spaces and situations. I see the new setup at Stagis as a coupling of competences – the best possible foundation for developing new holistic design solutions and building strong commercial brands,” says former creative director and founder of WDV STUDIO, Carina Juul, who is new Senior Brand Designer at Stagis as of today.

”With Nikolaj Stagis and his approach to corporate branding, I have the opportunity to contribute with my knowledge and experience earlier in the strategic brand development process of our client. This means that we can bridge business strategy and design – and that qualifies my results,” says Carina Juul. She is looking forward to working at Stagis, a consultancy with a strong agenda in business strategy and organizational development.

Oskar Stokholm, 24, employee at WDV STUDIO for four years, is also moving from the office in TAP1 to Kompagnistræde 14. As of the 2nd of March, he is new Junior Brand Consultant at Stagis.

Brand magic

Carina Juul founded the design agency originally named We Do Voodoo. “We” for community and “Voodoo” for the magic that adds an extra dimension to a corporate brand. She is bringing that thought into her work at Stagis too.

”The combination of the company’s purpose and the expressive idea is something I assign great importance to,” says Carina Juul, who for many years has worked with the tagline Modern Day Magic as her point of departure.

At WDV STUDIO, Carina Juul and Oskar Stockholm have worked with a wide range of clients from the culture, restaurant, real estate and logistics industries, counting well-known brands like LêLê, Restaurant Pluto, Alt_CPH, Finderskeepers, Defining Scandinavia, Oh! by Copenhagen Fur, NREP Logicenters and Kassandra.

New design solutions

“Stagis transforms companies to becoming purposeful brands. We do that by discovering the inherent potentials of the company and helping the business live and express the brand. With Carina Juul and Oskar Stokholm on the team Stagis is even stronger on the design agenda. No matter if the need is to create and express the identity of the company, creating digital design solutions or develop corporate design such as space, textiles or furniture,” says Nikolaj Stagis, CEO and author of the Danish book The Authentic Company.

Hiring Carina Juul and Oskar Stokholm is part of our growth strategy which means that we want to serve new clients, solve new projects and grow the team to 20 people of the next three years.
