VISION

My personal design vision

Zeitgeist

zeitgeist

We are in an era of great technological advancements. From the invention of the car, to the fridge, television, computer, internet and smartwatches; there is no denial that we seem to be in a technologically gaining momentum. With that comes great promise and perspective to near future possibilities. As a designer I decreasingly need to design for (integrated) technology and increasingly for human qualities. (No need for cables, technology gets smaller resulting in more freedom of form etc.) We are at the point where paradigms of ubiquitous and pervasive computing become reality and the physical and digital realm are more and more fused together.

Design shift through technological advancements

 

“As a designer I decreasingly need to design for (integrated) technology and increasingly for human qualities.”

Beautiful design for all

I think this promise should be embraced and expressed in designs to convey perspective and beauty to the world around us. I believe this beauty and perspective can be expressed by aesthetics and design for pleasureVisual attractiveness as a key characteristic for all products we use on a regular base. Pleasure instead of proposing new disliked experiences in product designs through for instance gamification. This beautiful design should be part of peoples house and even their life. Beautiful design should not be reserved for museums or the happy few.

Visual aesthetics

Visually aesthetic design must find its place in normal households with its own habits and product ensembles within their own social and cultural contexts. (i.e. different cultures and sub-cultures, often have different ideas about visual aesthetics) Beautifully designed products should make you enjoy and appreciate products for its sheer looks on an everyday basis. I honestly don’t get why with all todays’ possibilities, some products still seem to have an apalling lack of aesthetics. Raymond Loewy back in the 60s already said “Between two products equal in price, function and quality, the one with the most attractive exterior will win.”

Pleasure

Beautifully designed products should also give you a pleasurable experience in use. I believe that through design almost all disliked experiences can be taken away or given a more valuable and enjoyable twist.

Gamification

Almost all work and learning experience can be regarded too as problem solving activities – as are games in my opinion. With one major difference though: Gaming is a problem solving activity that is entered willfully – for fun or for entertainment. The gamification of learning and working activities therefore is a great way to make people enjoy their daily life more. As Leonardo Da Vinci stated it in ‘Thoughts on art and life’: “Experience is a truer guide than the words of others.” So the future aim should not be to find a way to embed knowledge and skills in our brains easily, but to find a way to experience it, so people can make their own interpretation of it and find their own unique use for it amidst their own social and cultural surroundings.

Identity

My professional identity

I consider myself to be a self-directed and multidisciplinary designer, with a specific love for visual aesthetics. A product I develop is not finished unless it looks beautiful to me ánd the potential users.

“A product I develop is not finished unless it looks beautiful to me ánd the potential users.”

My love for visual aesthetics lead me to the designs of the great designers of yesteryear. Products that are magically both child of their time and timeless at the same time. I’m getting more and more passionate about design history and design classics. I strive to position myself in, and am inspired by, these historic benchmarks. I therefore always aim to clearly position my design in a historical, societal and cultural context or trends.

I strongly believe in high quality physical prototypes on a visual level, no matter what project stage I’m in. I experienced first hand how a fiddly low-level prototype influences user experience and thus biases user-testing results to a great extent. During the past years I have developed myself into making high quality physical prototypes that posses the same visual and tactile qualities as the envisioned end product. I do this by handcrafting more and more supported by new digital production techniques.

During my education I became very interested in digital production techniques like 3D printing, laser cutting and cnc milling. Being very graphic and software oriented – following earlier education and experiences – this paved the way to high-res physical prototyping. Current digital production techniques allow for a close connection between design and creating the product. This could rule out steps between designer and consumer. This is valuable in both sustainability and enhancing holistic design possibilities.

As a contemporary designer I am confident at integrating technology and electronics into my products. Now that integrated technology becomes more and more ubiquitous, I believe this enables me to enrich user experiences by keeping in mind that the user experience, the perceived value and quality is the goal and not the technical novelty.

I’m a designer that loves the ideation phase of a project. I easily come up with project concepts. Over the years I got very experienced in refining ideas by using a variety of creativity techniques and by changing perspectives. I usually can’t wait to visualize these ideas and concepts to be able to convey my idea to others by using physical and interactive materiality, whilst remaining my critical attitude towards its aesthetic quality.

februari 2015 - februari 2017

Master Industrial Design, TU/e

Na langere tijd te hebben gewerkt met diverse rapid prototyping technieken, besloot ik de potentie van deze technieken om te zetten in iets concreets. Daaartoe heb ik een webshop opgezet om zelfontworpen lasergesneden design artikelen aan te bieden. De productie houd ik bewust lokaal en op kleine schaal. Hierbij maak ik zoveel mogelijk gebruik van duurzame materialen. Naast de webwinkel worden producten van MAACKT incidenteel ook aangeboden op bijvoorbeeld de Swan Market.

Gewerkt op - en gebouwd aan - de reclame afdeling van Inter-Sprint banden B.V. , de grootste bandendistributeur van Europa. Mijn functie op deze afdeling bestond uit grafisch ontwerp, dtp, marketing en website ontwerp/bouw voor Inter-Sprint en (internationale) gelieerde partners en klanten. Hier heb ik tevens zowel het stage- als het afstudeerproject van mijn opleiding Bedrijfskundige Informatica gedaan. Voor mijn stageproject heb ik een advies gedaan betreffende het in kaart brengen en stroomlijnen van de administratieve organisatie. Dit project heb ik afgerond met een 8. Voor mijn afstudeerproject heb ik een plan geschreven, analyse en adviezen gedaan, met betrekking tot het opstarten van een professionele reclame afdeling. Dit project heb ik afgerond met een 8.

Website realisatie ontwerp en beheer van de CGK Zwijndrecht.

Werklid van de commissie computer hulverlening van de CGK in Zwijndrecht. Mijn taak was het leveren van eerste hulp bij pc hard- en software problemen.

Ongeveer tweemaandelijks op zondagochtend live radio opnamen maken.

Recentelijk: Huis vormgever voor Stichting Dutch Baroque. De vormgeving van het boek fysiotherapeutische gespreksvoering door Vincent Kortleve.

Stage voor mijn HAVO opleiding. Reparatie en verkoop van pc’s en randapparatuur.
