Dare to challenge the ordinary


I'm Robert Daniel Nagy, a Creative Director, and Designer from Copenhagen, Denmark. I firmly believe that the future belongs to those that dare to challenge the ordinary, and I strive to incorporate this philosophy into my work. 

In 2007 I graduated from the School of Visual Communication in Denmark and was instantly hired by Scandinavian DesignLab in Copenhagen. Here I quickly became a vital part of their core design team. At Scandinavian DesignLab, I helped the agency achieve numerous design awards, including twice the Danish Design Agency of the Year. I also earned personal recognition in winning the Young Creative Circle Award twice - a national competition that acclaims young creatives under 30.

In 2011 I joined J. Walter Thompson Copenhagen as Head of Design, setting up a new design department. My task was to help the agency transform from traditional advertising to a full-service agency. During this process, J. Walter Thompson Copenhagen received much national and international recognition, including Danish Agency of the Year and a Silver Design Lion at the Cannes Lions.

In 2014 I Co-founded the messaging platform, Haxi. Haxi has since grown to one of Europe’s most popular ridesharing platforms, with more than 1.000.000 rides shared.
In 2015 I Co-founded the Strategic Brand Studio HEAVY™ - a strategic design studio that helped organizations launch, evolve, and reboot their brand.

In 2019 HEAVY™ joined forces with IDna Group – a strategic and identity-driven design company.

I have served on the board of Danish Designers – one of Europe’s few multi-disciplinary designers’ associations.

I'm also a frequent speaker and guest lecturer at The School of Visual Communication in Denmark.
