About

I’m a product and graphic designer from the Netherlands. I love to design products that tell a story. All my projects start off with a theme and a lot of research. The execution depends on the concept. It can either be a product or a graphic design or a combination of both.

Conceptual Thinking And Research

In 2011 I finished my college education in graphic design with the focus on art and design. During this course the focus was mainly on conceptual thinking and this was something I really enjoyed. But I always felt I wanted to do something more. I really loved making functional products so I decided to do a bachelor in Product Design. 

In 2011 I started at the art academy in Rotterdam. My third year I spend in China doing my minor in sustainability at Tongji university and doing an internship at Spin Ceramics. I finished my bachelor degree in Januari 2016.

Skills

During my graphic design studies I learned to work with Adobe software, later I also learned the basics of several of 3d programs. While studying product design I got the chance to experiment with a lot of different materials. Although my main focus right now is on product design, I still passionate about graphic design and I just love to combine these two design fields.
