THE POLKA DOTTIES
Rikke Wolffsen and Gitte Søgaard founded polka dots on a clear and frosty day in November 2004. Our first main office was Rikke’s freezing seven square metre shed – and this is where the idea was born and realised.
We had been working together for 10 years with the same types of tasks as those we carry out in polka dots, so we knew each other really well beforehand. The division of tasks is the same now as it was then; Gitte handles design and production, and Rikke handles sales and marketing.
We were both well-reputed in the business, so none of us doubted that our skills and hard work would be of benefit to any company that means business every time they add their logo to anything. We were passionate about ‘that extra something’ and stretching our measuring tape a little further rather than going with the easy solutions and standard goods – off-the-rack clothing – so the decision to go for it and become business owners seemed completely natural.
Since then, we have moved to an atmospherical – and heated – space close to Copenhagen which gives us easy access to our customers and business partners as well as a bustling local environment with lots of inspiration.
Altogether, the two of us have been drawing, talking and dancing for more than twenty years! A close and tightly-knit polka which continues to inspire and energise both of us ... We invite you to come and see for yourself – and learn about the possibilities of giving your business branding a proper twirl.
