👋 Hi, my name is Wouter

🌘 icon designer by night
I've been a designer for over 24 years

What I do
I make sense of things.
The environments people work in are always complex. Often with even more complex systems and tools for them to work with.
I discover core patterns to bring back a level of simplicity. So people can interact with sophisticated systems with more ease and in ways that seem logical to them.
How I do it
I am a master in visualising the context of people into diagrams. This helps to find a common understanding on the desired end goal in a simplified manner.
By listening to people and observing their activities and behaviors I am able to design applications that help them perform tasks better, faster and with more joy.
