This is what I do

Feel free to look around and if you're interested send me a message.

Interaction Design

Interaction Design (IxD) defines the structure and behavior of systems. Where UX focuses on the whole product focuses IxD on the interactions that the end-user must perform.

UX Design

The art of User Experience Design is to define the structure and behavior of interactive systems. It strives to create meaningful relationships between people, products and services.

Visual Design

Visual design is vital for the end-result. Tools I use are: Sketch, Invision, Adobe Suite - Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign.

Design strategy

Design strategy requires a careful blend of business strategy and UX design. It's not only about designing but also how to sell it to the business. It often requires political sensitivity.

User testing

It's not the designer that decides, but the people who use it. I have experience with small- and big user tests. From writing scenario's, interviewing techniques to build a UX lab from scratch.

SEO

Search engine optimisation are techniques and tactics used to increase the amount of visitors to a website by obtaining a high-ranking placement in the search results page of search engine.

Different roles

As a freelance UX designer, I’ve spent many years designing experiences for large companies in the banking and insurance sector. I helped building innovative departments where term UX wasn’t even known. I did this in various roles as ux manager, consultant, sr ux-designer, etcetera. As a consultant I’m helping clients identify their business objectives and users’ motivations. I work with them to design high-level and low-level experiences and user flows that make sense.

Current posistion

Currently I’m working for UWV (Employee Insurance Agency) and is commissioned by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment (SZW) to implement employee insurances and provide labour market and data services. UX and product design consulting might include: user research to determine user personas and use cases, identify pain points in existing UIs and workflows, creating user flows and high-level information architecture, wireframes, prototypes and usability testing.
