About me

That's me making a weird face while looking at a ball!

I was born in 1989 and raised in a small Belgian town called Lummen. I grew up there realising pretty quickly what I wanted to do in life. Besides sports, Computers and IT always fascinated me. Almost all live choices I made - education, hobby's, extensive gaming until 4 a.m., ... - made me the complete Experience Designer I am now.

THINGS I LIKE TO DO

I believe in doing what you're good at and I believe that you can only be good at something if you have fun doing it. I absolutely love to play beachvolleyball. The spirit of the sport really agrees with me and I'm pretty good at it. So in my free time I love nothing more then to have fun in the sand and sun! Gaming, movies, TV shows and hanging out with my soulmate take up rest of my free time.

MY PERSONALITY

I'm friendly and funny - or so people tell me, constantly, like all the time and everywhere, it's kind of annoying actually - and addicted to ball sports and media consumption in all of its forms. I'm a dreamer with ambition, ideas come to me naturally. I have great people skills, I'm stress-free and highly flexible.

LOVE FOR DESIGN(ING)

I really love design. Seeing the beauty in things, that's kind of why I'm alive. It's equally fascinating for me to create. And in turn, to see the effect my well crafted design has on people. The joy of being creative is one of life's finest pleasures.

EXTENSIVE SKILL SET

My skill set is very extensive. From board game design to 3D animations, I've done a lot of different and creative things. The front-end web has no secrets for me and I know my way around a couple of popular coding languages. I'm also a strong innovator and problem solver who is constantly learning more and getting better at Experience Design.


My Work

With around 10 years of experience in web development and graphic design and more then 7 years of hands-on experience in User Experience Design, I'm working my way up to become a real jack of all trades. I'm currently fulltime employed as UX consultant for Continuous. On this page you can see a summary of some of my more exciting projects.


Complete VDAB Style Guide

Complete VDAB Style Guide

VDAB is a digital first government institution that guides people in their search for a job. This digital first strategy requires a unified style for all web and internal applications. Using the magic of HTML/CSS/JQuery and responsive design I help plan, create and maintain the ultimate reference for all VDAB applications. While at VDAB I also help to mock up, analyse and test a lot of applications to improve their usability.

Web Development and UI Design

Web Development and UI Design

Building websites was a hobby at first but eventually it became the way I rolled in to the broader spectrum of User Experience Design. I've made a lot of different websites using different technologies and frameworks. Most of my technical and project management skills I learned from building standalone websites! Here you can find some of the highlights.

Logos

Logos and Graphic Design

I love Graphic Design and I think I have a great eye for it. This translates to simple but effective logo designs where I try to make things easy to understand and nice to look at. Grapic Design skills are a must for every User Experience Designer. These projects helped me to hone my skills.

Other cool design projects

I've put everything that's a bit more out of the box when you think about UX Design here. I absolutely love these kinds of projects because they give room for a lot of creative freedom, a thing on wich I thrive. I've made a city game, a satirical representation of Sledderlo, a memory tool for the elderly, conceptualised an online problem solving platform for a startup and more. Below two projects I'm very proud of.
