Henriette Mørk

10: Nov 2013

Henriette Mork is an art director and graphic designer, as well as a journalist and photographer. She has worked with visual communication and storytelling in many forms. First in advertising, mainly for clients in the film industry, later as an art director and graphic designer in branding and design studios.

Today her business in Copenhagen helps clients in publishing, performing arts, public and corporate companies with their visual communication, design solutions, copywriting – and storytelling. On her own time, she is working on a series of stories, based on interviews and photography. Her plan is to make storytelling for multimedia the company's main brand.

Mork majored in Visual Communication and Graphic Design at the Danish School of Media & Journalism in 1994. She later graduated with a degree in narrative journalism and photojournalism from the Danish School of Media & Journalism. She has attended workshops at The National Film School of Denmark.

Henriette participated in the November 2013 MediaStorm Methodology Workshop. She had the following to say about her experience:

The week in DUMBO connected the dots for me in my quest to get my stories out there. Brian and his crew have boiled years of research and experience down to a handy tool kit for us to take back home. Just add courage. I always wanted to turn my stories into film, it just seemed like too big a mouthful. But not anymore. For me, meeting the crew at MediaStorm was a kick in the butt to finally put storytelling and great images first in my work.

When Brian took us through MediaStorm's productions, explaining the work process and their choices, many things fell into place for me. In my own work, I try to balance gravity and humor, and I prefer letting whatever turns up in the process define the heartbeat of the story. When Brian took us through the stories Amazing Amy and Take Care: the choice of characters, the tightness in Amazing Amy, the colors in Take Care … and the dog! … Wow. That was when I thought, "This platform is what I am looking for, this is where my disciplines can come together. I can do it."

I left DUMBO feeling inspired and optimistic. I'm already having meetings with clients and people in my network on how to use storytelling for multimedia. But most importantly, I am taking out time to work on my own projects. The ones without deadlines.

I'm keeping a close eye on my new friends in MediaStorm, they know what they're talking about.
