About Me – it’s all about me. My resume

UX Designer – New York

Here is my pdf resume.

Why did I want to become a Designer?  Two words: Walls Sausages. When I was a child living in England I discovered that with every pack of Walls sausages you could get a card which depicted a scene with a dinosaur. They were cute and well-drawn (for the 1970s).  But the thing that fascinated me most was that they could be put together in any order and would still make a panorama.

That was so cool. I wanted to do that, I wanted to make something magical out of something simple. That’s design, and that’s what I wanted to do.

Here is a bullet list of the things I do:

  • Wire-framing and prototyping
  • User testing, personas, and use cases
  • Development of sites in CMS
  • Product development
  • Design
  • UX
  • SE0
  • Responsive design
  • App development

After studying design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, I worked as a designer for several magazines and journals. With the introduction of the internet, I started working for a computer magazine and was asked to create a website.  I have made every mistake that a graphic designer can make on this journey from HTML 1.0 to responsive mobile sites.

I am an experienced designer who has followed his passion for printing with ink and lead to coding in bytes. I have designed for magazines and newspapers, websites and apps, and love the process of design that follows the UX needs of the user as an integral aspect of the design process. More information about my design process, and UX procedure, can be found on this website.
