Hello, I’m a designer and artist based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
When I finished my studie in Advertising, Presentation and Communication (Graphic Design) I wanted to make more than just a nice looking product or graphic.
I wanted to make things useful, something with the user in mind. So I started the studie Interaction Design at the Utrecht School of the Arts.
Now I work as a freelance Interaction Designer and I teach Interaction Design, Game Design and Game Art students at the Utrecht School of the Arts about Visual Design in Interactive Products and Game Design.
My focus is playful interactions. Designing products and installations to play with. Let the user discover something.
Discovering is a big part of my own life, always try to design new things, in new area’s and new products. I know I will never stop learning new things.
My strong points are Concept Design, Interaction Design, Playful Design, Interactive Product Design, (Art) Installations.
With my background in Graphic Design I always ensure that things look good.
Feel free to contact me, I’m always looking for new opportunities.
