Hi, my name is Justyna Starostka

I have 12 years of experience in teaching, researching and managing projects in design and management environments. In recent years, I have been involved in creating different education programs that combine my design and management background. Currently I live in Denmark, working with Danish and Polish companies. In my projects, I work closely with you and your organization and help build your design capacity. If you are interested in working with me, let's meet!

Design management

I help you and your organization understand design management and build your strategic design orientation.

Design thinking

I help you and your organization understand and implement design thinking and design approaches.

Service design

I help you and your organization build or improve your new services.

I have worked in almost 50 different organizations within furniture, interior design, FMCG, fashion, cosmetics, lighting, kitchen equipment, financial and human resource services, as well as NGO and non-profit organisations. I have a deep understanding of design processes and design strategies, and understand the challenges and difficulties you face as a manager when working with design and design methods.

What can I do for you?

Call me and let's have a meeting. At the meeting I will give you a brief presentation, with examples of my work, and ask you some inspirational and provocative questions. It is free! Below you can read some of the things we can talk about.

Design Workshops

A design workshop includes a fully customized program in areas such as design thinking, service design, user involvement or co-creation. The goal is to support and develop your immediate needs. A workshop includes, for example. a short lecture, guided discussions, case studies, inspirations and group work. You will get practical tools that you can apply right after the workshop!

Education & Training

Fully customized educational and/or training programs that respond your immediate and future needs. I have developed and taught courses, workshops and learning projects for many years and I can build knowledge programs within management, communication, personal development, innovation and design.

Consulting & Projects

Do you need my knowledge, experience and connections in relation to a particular project task? I can help you in new product or service development, development of design strategies, developing new markets, or in developing and implementing user involvement.

The Polish market

Poland is a large and growing market. I can help you create contacts, find export opportunities, partners and production companies. I have experience from many industries, including: design, furniture, food, cosmetics and service companies. I can also help you understand the Polish customer, Polish working culture and legislation.
