Work

I am highly proficient and self-directive, especially, in the digital work environment.

Excellent command in Microsoft Office and experience in creating 'client ready' files. 

I am very comfortable in using Adobe Suite for creating visualizations, reports, and project videos. Additionally, I am very proficient in making (vector) drawings used for rapid prototyping.

I have used several 3d modeling software for visualization and 3d printing purposes, but have not committed to one program for specialization.

Arduino programming skills revolve around creating interactive (physical) systems with coupled with electrical engineering skills. Processing for interactive visualizations and digital communication systems.

Software Proficiencies

I have always wanted to become an inventor... industrial designer comes pretty close! Through my studies I have been described as active, strong opinionated and team player which is reflects in my attitude and design process. By looking at possibilities rather than problems, I often can play an inspiring role as team member. I tend to kickstart by making and exploring while reflections provide thinking to support the process. User perspective and value is one of the main driver in my design approach. I explore the design challenges hands-on with prototypes and mock-ups and have tenacious eagerness to keep learning.
