A little something about myself
I’m passionate about designing elegant but also easy-to-use interfaces that are meaningful and become great user experiences. I find the most fulfilment when I can think of both the functional and graphical aspect of a digital product. For me, these two are inseparable. It comes down to structuring, organising and visualising information in a clear way and experimenting with interaction.
ExperienceFor more than 7 years now, I've been specializing in UI/UX design. In the past I’ve worked part-time at Internet Architects in Antwerp as lead visual design, mainly for large businesses (the Province of Antwerp, Sanoma Media, Essentiel, Europeana Fashion, and many more). Besides that, I did freelance work for somewhat smaller companies and startups, what made for a nice balance in challenges and opportunities. I'm lucky enough to have done some corporate identity and print work for my clients as well. This allowed me to experiment with materials and artisanal printing techniques.
I also teach Interactive Design at the Graphic Design department of LUCA, School of Arts, in Brussels since 2014. This is only one day per week and perfectly compatible with my career as an independent UI designer.
Do you think we should meet?
To mark the release of a Warriors edition, The Word Magazine teamed up with This is Antwerp to bring 100 Antwerp Warriors, a selection of local movers and shakers setting the tone for the neighbourhood of tomorrow. I’m happy to be one of them. Read the interview.
