Chances are if you’re a Design Milk reader, you’re pretty familiar with the Danish electronics brand Bang & Olufsen, and while we’ve featured many of their products, we haven’t showcased any of the talented folks behind the well-known name. For this Friday Five, we asked Marie Kristine Schmidt to step forward, as she leads design, insights, branding, and marketing across the brand’s impressive portfolio. Schmidt joined the team in 2012 to run its Creative Center before moving into her current position. Her degree in business led to moving up the ranks in the Danish army where she achieved officer status, after which she spent over a decade at design consultancies. All of this prepared her for her gig at Bang & Olufsen where she most recently guided the design of the new BeoLab 90, one of the most technologically advanced speakers in the world. Take a look to see what keeps Schmidt happy.
