Food for thought
My approach to design
Most of my projects start with observations and questions around ordinary human behavior and emotion towards our (designed) environment. My strength, quality and passion lies in understanding the interaction between a product and its user, from a practical and emotional point of view. I peel down to the essence of a product, expose design opportunities, and create charming, understandable, easy to use products. I believe this approach is applicable to many creative design processes, and leads to innovation.
This short presentation tells the story of my approach to design.
I truly believe in the value of untangeling the fuzzy-front end. Through this process you can envision what the product could and should be. It leads to a better understanding of the product that you are about to design and the people you are designing it for.

stuff that inspires me
"Although we design an object, it is important to remember that that process isn’t just about the object, but about the kind of information we freeze into it"
"Design must add to the richness and strange beauty of existence…"
Gillian Crampton Smith
"For most of us design is invisible untill it fails. In fact the secret ambition of design is to become invisible, to be taken up into the culture, absorbed into the background. The highest order of succes in design is to achieve ubiquity, to become banal."
Bruce Mau in ‘Massive Change’.
"An object isn't judged in isolation, but in context. Where does it live?"
