Freelance UX Designer: Keekvorm
Currently, I'm working as a freelance UX Designer to help local companies design or improve their online enivorments. Together with Troop Design, we're telling the stories of, for instance: attorneys, taxi services and shipping companies.
UX design at Favoroute
Favoroute is a startup company that focusses on travel content. The company works together with hundreds of local writers all over the world to create local travel content. Within the Favoroute team, I have been the UX designer. I mainly worked on creating wireframes, mockups, and interactive prototypes. A period where I learned what the startup life looks like.
Interaction Design internship at Olisto
During the second year of CMD, I worked as an interaction designer intern at the company Olisto. Olisto is a platform where the user can automate their digital life. Services like Google Calendar and devices like the Philips Hue can work together on this platform. I have worked on a new concept during this internship period. I mainly worked on designing wireframes and prototypes. This concept was also tested in a user test. This period mainly taught me what a design process looks like in practice.
CMD at Hogeschool van Amsterdam
Communication and Multimedia Design is the course that I currently take. CMD focusses on designing interactive, digital products with the user in the spotlight. We use different research methods to get an understanding of the target audience. The design process includes job stories, storyboards, wireflows and customer journeys (and many more). We also build these concepts in either prototype tools or use frontend development.
Illustration at HKU, Utrecht
This year taught me not to hold on too much to my first idea. This course is about developing your own style as an illustrator. As much sketching and experimenting as possible has been the motto for this period.
One of the things I made, during the course was this video:
Design internship at Gonzales, Antwerp
This internship was part of the course Art & Design at the Koning Willem 1 College. Gonzales is a creative design agency in Antwerp. They work on projects that embody a lot of disciplines. They design and build websites, shoot different kinds of video's and do a lot of photography. In this period I have learned something within all of these disciplines.
