Designing for humans

Mobile

Experience in both mobile web and native apps design.

Web

Designing and building websites with a thorough understanding of the web.

Responsive design

Responsive design does not mean to design the same experience 3 times. It means designing an experience that allows the context to form the content in a beautiful way.

Rapid Prototyping

Interaction design is probably the easiest to prototype. Prototype fast and often is the best way to validate and improve any interaction design.

Love for Lean Startup & Agile UX

Started beginning 2012 as an experiment to get idea's out there and evolved into believing in working, thinking and designing LEAN.

400 Minutes

A different perspective on Agile UX

In 2011, I decided to use my tedious travel time to conduct an experiment: Could I take an idea from concept to working product using only the time on my daily commute? The answer was not only a yes, but quickly turned from one project to several.

The 400 minute project challenges me to take risks in both design, ideation and business concepts. It eliminates the fear or tireless hours of preparation in favor of stretching my imagination. I can flex my design muscles while I use the 400 minute time constraint to prioritize and produce interesting, and risky ideas...like this website!

One Click Bookshop

The one that started it all. The idea is simple: choice is overrated. You can buy a book for a guy or a girl and will receive a surprise book.

As simple as it gets. Upload a letter, enter the address and your letter will be posted. This project actually seems to work as hundreds of letters are already sent.

400 Minutes

After doing 3 projects I started to realize that the process was starting to become more interesting than the end products. To try to capture the process I created the blog (and name) 400 Minutes.

When I created this, chatroulette, pictionairy and wordfeud were hot. 'iwillshow.it' combines these three into a webcam game of hints.

Forgot your name

I noticed people are attending meetings more and more with their laptops. That combined with the fact that I forget people's names the moment they pronounce it, made me come up with this tool to help you remember peoples names.

PlayList
