I help technology companies make products people like to use. I work across the complete design process, from deep dives into complex user experience problems all the way to final implementation assets.
Advanced products need advanced interfaces. Let me help you identify what you can do better and propose a range of practical solutions.
Gather feedback from different stakeholders and make informed design decisions with a comprehensive blueprint of key screens and interactions.
Use visual cues not only to make your interface look good, but also to help your customers use your product with ease.
Give your product a voice. I’ll help you create chat- and voice-based apps people enjoy talking to.
Over the years I’ve worked with a number of startups and established companies. Most recently, I’ve been collaborating with Wizehire.com, a recruiting platform for small business owners. Earlier, I’ve designed a data dashboard for Rainforest Connection (Google.org grant recipient), helped rebuild Mixbook.com’s photo book editor, assisted Brainly.com with the launch of their first subscription plan and gave Mytos.bio (YC ’18) a hand with their first web app. I’ve also worked on internal tooling projects at Bol.com (largest Dutch e-commerce site) and TMG.nl (Dutch/Belgian media publisher). Today I continue working with teams large and small, particularly on early-stage web and mobile apps (iOS and Android).
I have several extra-curricular projects under my belt. Here are some highlights.
Employee onboarding assistant for Slack.
Brutalist, grid-based wireframe design system starter file.
Wireframe component library for Slack apps.
Framework for naming static files in product design.
I write a blog about design, technology, and startups.
Color, typography and layout pointers for indie makers.
Design chatbots that people enjoy talking to.
If I had to give one piece of advice about designing MVPs this would be it.
Don’t settle for the first idea that’s good enough. Keep exploring.
Make sure you nail the value proposition first. Everything else can wait.
