Design Director IDEO

Karen Hentschel

Some people see the world through rose-colored glasses. As a design director at IDEO Munich, Karen's lens is just as optimistic but far less satisfied. She's constantly looking for opportunities to improve upon the norm as she helps organizations rethink ways of working and grow their internal capabilities.

Karen holds a BA in interaction design from the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences. She has a love of gathering and making sense of data through data visualizations that have been featured in several publications. She periodically teaches and mentors students, most recently at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design.
