Bachelor in Product Design
"I’m a real globetrotter, I’ve worked from Guatemala over San Francisco, Saudi Arabia, to Belgium, Australia and Cameroon. These multicultural experiences matured me in my design skills and opened my mind to sense the upcoming trends. I always start from a blank page and go to the finest detail, in this respect I also consider texturing and colour an integral part of the design. I always take mass production techniques into consideration from the very beginning."

Master in Product Design
"As a designer you’re balancing between art and engineering. For me a well-designed product is pleasing for the eye and flawless in functionality. I find it important to know a products legacy. Where did it come from and where is it going. A good design has something to add. To accomplish this I embrace new materials and technologies. In design I strive for elegance, simplicity and a twist of playfulness."

Bachelor in Product Design
"Design is something both emotional and functional. When you put character in a product you create a sort of attraction and raise feelings. By doing this way you turn an every day product into an object you must have. Not only does the product need to be beautiful but it has to do what it was designed for. Ergonomics and quality are linked with a functional package and it is as important as the looks of the product. By giving both outwardly and inwardly value to a product we obtain qualitative design and that is what we need."

Bachelor Product Design / Packaging design
"Good design is for me a product which is a joy to use and own, it needs to smile. The strength lies within the ability to form interesting visual elements and link them to a functional purpose. The ability to take concepts from paper into 3D and develop them further to the final product. In design I strive for Simplicity with a spark of playfulness My goal? Make people love the product as much I loved making it. "
