Knowledge

I’ve never been fond of bragging about the stuff I can do. I’m pretty down to earth and always sceptical about my work. Nevertheless here are the main reasons why I think you want me in your team

Interaction Design

Interaction Design

The way we see the world has changed a lot these past decades because of the internet and new types of devices. Designing how people interact with these devices is my mission. Let's make it as simple as possible.

Mobile User Experience

Mobile User Experience

With the development of new connected devices, user experiences change a lot. Not only the device matters, but the entire situation when the device is being used.

Usability Testing

Usability Testing

Whether you design for desktop, tablet or smartphone, testing how it works in the real world is paramount. Usability testing will always give valuable insights.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

About

I'm Sjors, Mobile User Experience Designer. It's a pleasure to meet you in this digital world.

During my study, Communication & Multimedia Design at the Hogeschool Rotterdam I focused mostly on interaction design because I've always found Human-Computer interactions very interesting. During my graduation thesis I specialized in two things: A. Mobile & B. user testing. In mobile, because (at that point) I thought not only that mobile usage would continue to grow for the next 10 years, but also because it is the most challenging type of interaction. I specialized in user testing because it is a paramount step in the design process, one that is skipped quite often.

After finishing my study, I took a little time off to visit the northern part of India. I love traveling, especially in Asia, and still wanted to do a longer trip alone and by myself. It was simply put an amazing experience from which I learned to look for a shred of structure in the chaotic vastness that is called India and it's people.

When I came back to the Netherlands it only took about 2 months before I left again, this time to Bulgaria to work as a project manager and interaction designer for DanceTrippin TV. After spending a couple of months there, I fled the city of Sofia and went back to the Netherlands, continuing my work. Working in the Netherlands, with people not only in Bulgaria and Romania, but also on Ibiza and occasionally in the Netherlands was an interesting challenge but luckily manageable.

Overlapping the last few months of my employment at Dancetrippin TV, I started working at Youwe (formerly known as Drecomm) in Rotterdam. Working on Magento webshops, corporate websites, intranets and other challenging websites I learned a lot more about interaction design and communicating with customers working for.

Since the summer of 2013 I've been active as a board member at a foundation, called Stichting Waterdragers. It's a relatively small foundation, but the work I'm doing with them is extremely rewarding. We're focused on small projects in Cambodia and Nepal, aimed at children's education and improving their chances of a better future.

For now, that's about it, about me. If there are any questions about me or my work send me an email and I'll get back to you!
