Recent skills and work I have picked up are NDA and therefore not shown on this website. Contact me for more information.
Working with a tailor to create the Baby Tray Bed
Working on a project about autism
Working with a plastics expert to create prototype
1 - 3
Teamwork is very important to me thus during my studies I focused a lot on this skill. A service designer needs to be able to work with all kinds of stakeholders. Therefore I collaborated with very diverse experts such as programmers, managers, customers, funeral attendants, tailors etcetera. My forte in a team is to keep an overview and assign appropriate tasks to everyone.
Presenting my work at the TU/e
BabyTrayBed made in collaboration with tailor
Committee organising a week long talkshow during the Dutch Design Week

The success of a concept is often closely related to the clearness of the story. During my studies I had to present my work often to experts as well as random audiences. I therefore developed strong skills on how to communicate a concept verbally as well as via film, graphics and prototypes. Next to this I am quick at learning new trades to be able to consult with experts.
Goals set at the end of my bachelor education
Project Planning of Final Bachelor Project
Project Planning of Final Master Project
1 - 3
My studies enabled me to run 5 half year individual projects and one 1 year individual master graduation project. I pride myself in being able to plan well and reach all the deadlines in time. Next to this I have been a part of several committees of the study association and short project teams where I learned to manage time in a group.
Showing the touchpoints combined with the Service Blueprint of the Baby Comfort Class
Customer Journey Mapping about Parktheater audience
Flowchart showing the valueproposition and roadmap of implementation
2 - 3
At the end of my final bachelor project I became aware of the existence of service design. I realised this was exactly the method I was searching for as I prefer to design from stakeholders needs. My master education has therefore been focussed on implementing this method with several companies ( such as KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Parktheater). I use tools such as service safari, service blueprint and customer journey mapping to create a concept which fits as much stakeholders as possible.
Co-creating with cabin crew
Booklet for product testing the BabyTrayBed in context
Repertory Grid Methos, comparing different touchpoints
1 - 3
A large part of creating and validating a service design is user research. I used the Repertory Grid Method to figure out what surviving relatives and funeral attendants thought about various funeral announcement methods. Next to this I have conducted many contextual interviews and written up surveys. I am able to lead a co-creation workshop as well.
Board of Innovation scheme which shows value proposition of Ons Parktheater
Business Model Canvas made for final Bachelor project
Implementation Roadmap for the Blimey Company
3 - 3
To create viable concepts I realised it is important for me as a designer to be able to write up a business model. I prefer using the “Board of Innovation” model as it clearly shows the distribution of values between different stakeholders. Next to this I am able to write up an implementation roadmap and business model canvas.

Video focussed on conveying emotions. Shot and edited by me.
Video shot, edited and directed by me. Premiere Pro and After Effects were used during editing.
I have a background in theatre which lead me to improve my skills in filming and editing. I love creating stories in a visual manner. I write the storyboard, film with my DSLR camera and edit with Premiere Pro and After Effects. Check the boxes above to see previous movies I made. .
