Ever since as a kid I have always loved creating stuff and use pen and paper sketching for hours. I am a curious person that wants to learn something new every day.
After school I saw this as a problem, not having a speciality or to be able to focus on one thing and get really good at that.
Now I see this at my strength. It is so good to have worked with Prepress to understand the printing process from start to finish. Or as a Photographer and learning good composition and color correction. As a Graphic Designer sketching a logo to make it look good both on web and on a building. And that feeling when you see that logo on a car or billboard…
I have worked as a Product Designer, building prototypes and 3D visualization. It is very satisfying when you see one of you products in a store, or even better in someones home.
I really love UX design and I think my wide background is the main reason for this. I now work as an Art Director and User Experience Designer. I think I start to understand how to design good products with a high business value. I love the problem solving aspect of design and the opportunities it gives us.
But you can always learn something new and my best skill is my curiosity.
