I have a dream… to make awesome digital products based on a great concept with a high user value. That’s why I chose to study Communication & Multimedia Design at the University of Applied sciences in Amsterdam. During my third year at CMD, I wanted to challenge myself and see what it’s like to live abroad. That’s why I chose to go to Edinburgh, Scotland and attend to a minor at Edinburgh Napier University. In my graduation year, I first did an internship for 6 months at Jungle Minds as a User Experience Researcher and -Designer. During the second part of the year, I wrote my thesis at Philips Design Healthcare. Here I came up with a solution to prepare MRI-patients for their scan, called uPrep. I love to design for sensitive users, just as I did at Philips. When in July 2017 I finished my studies, I started to work to safe money to fulfil a lifetime dream; to travel. I bought a backpack and went to South America for half a year. It was a life changing experience and a great adventure. Words can't describe this adventure.
These are projects that I'm most proud of
Philips Design Healthcare
An MRI-preparation app for Philips Design Healthcare.
Unfortunately I can not tell more about this project here. Please contact me for more information.
The Muziekkamer Assen is a foundation that organises classical concerts in Assen.
Their website was ready for an update, so I was asked to help them make this. The design was made already by a designer, so I needed to make sure it looked the same. Also, I gave advise about texts and usability.
FlipIt is a fact-checking tool, combined with data visualisations. This fact-checking tool is to give people a better overview in the numbers of refugees. People are guided through this tool by a character, Flip. This character is based on Flip van Dyke, he is a researcher investigating migration and refugees.
This interactive shopping window is made for Nike stores. When people pass by the window, the color of where they walked will change. When the whole screen is filled with the other colours, cracks will appear and the screen will become black and white again. Since the screen is taller than a person, it will stimulate people to move and jump in front of the window to fill it completely with color.
Design, Concept, User Experience
KUUBcultuur is a small bureau for cultural advise and project creation.
Since the bureau started not long ago, I was asked to deliver a website when launching the bureau. I’ve given advise about the use of the platform, content, design, color use and I’ve made the site itself.

Amsterdam Medisch Centrum
Our client, the AMC (Amsterdam Medical Center) asked us to make an app for patients with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). BDD is a psychiatrical disease, the patient things he/she has a defect on their body. The app is meant to prevent a relapse.
Growth is the central subject in our app. We’ve made a visualisation of this in the form of a flower. The flower symbolises the status of the patient; the better the patient feels, the bigger the flower.
Design & User Experience
During my minor in Edinburgh I wrote some blogs about my adventures
