👋 Hi, my name is Wouter

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.

What I'm like

• delivers solutions that are well thought out
