Welcome to my online soapbox. I am a Dutch Frisian designer based in Germany. I am a professional User Interface and Experience Designer. Currently working for Bitfactory GmbH.
On this blog you can expect writings on:
I started out as a kid with Photoshop chops. I'd make album covers for local metal bands.
I decided it was time to leave that highly saturated market for another highly saturated market. I choose to attend an Intercultural Communications course at the Hanze University.
Later, a software company offered me a internship as User Interface designer during my semester abroad. My passion for design did not leave me any choice: I accepted.
After, I went home to finish my studies. At the same time, I took the chance of building my own design business. A couple of years later Bitfactory GmbH asked me to come work for them full time. I did.
Because of them, I've had the great privilege to design for companies such as Daimler, Sony and Viasto.
