Hey –


I’m Désirée—strategist and consultant working across brand, business and communications, fascinated with the many expressions of change and evolution.

I explore life with an almost compulsive curiosity for how things are inter-connected. I look for patterns and try to bring our everyday themes into a wider, sometimes personal, context.

What you’ll find here are insights, ideas, perspectives and observations about building brand-driven businesses, exploring what it means to build a business on your own terms, connect with creativity and anything else that itches my brain to evolve and grow.

This is the right place for you, if…

By joining The Brain Itch community, you are not only supporting an independent professional following her vision of a more considered, collaborative business world, you are also saying “Yes!” to that part of you that is curious about and wants to make sense of the shifts taking place.

You are saying "Hell, yes!” to questioning how things have always been done and how business on your own terms could look like.

You are saying “Yes, please!” to another individual’s perspectives, ideas and insights, instead of sticking to your usual algorithm diet.

Broadening your horizon is more than a catch-phrase for you, it’s a compulsion. You are entrepreneurial in how you think and consider things.

That’s the kind of people we want to see and hear from here. For subscribers, that’s what the comments are for. Use them!

We’re all looking for our place in the big picture.

From one creative explorer and critical thinker to another

Let’s seek to question and rewire the patterns of how we do things where necessary and experiment with how we could in the future where possible.

This newsletter is also a community, which you can contribute to and be part of as paying subscriber. Comments, discussions and ideas are welcomed and encouraged.

We are in this together because business is about more than economic gain. It’s about an ecosystem of shared values, collaboration and relationships.
