Elizabeth Thomsen was trained in the Danish and English film and TV industries, from clapper/loader to producer (DR, Nordisk Film, Thames TV, LWT, C4, Transworld Int., Pinewood Studios) as an apprentice and she worked as a freelance worker in film and TV for 15 years.
Interactive screen design
In 2004 Elizabeth implemented the methods she’d developed at the Danish Technological University and the Danish Technical Institute, for which she had previously received £250 000 funding for a project that pursued patents worldwide, on Nordea Bank’s trading platform. Her innovative work won plaudits from stocks and share traders for its ease of use and sheer simplicity in being able to find information and trade more easily. Elizabeth has taken this ethos of usability and appealing design forward to clients from a range of other sectors of industry, from glass artists from Holmegaard in Denmark to international businesses like Maya Gold.
