A picture of myself

Hello I am Davey,

I am a passionate designer that likes to use technology to push boundaries. Or... am I an engineer that has a great eye for design? I don't know... It's hard to put me in a well-defined role. What I know for sure is that I am a maker and a problem solver. Nothing excites me more than working on complex digital projects and using my skills to find creative and fitting solutions.. Seeing projects come to life is an amazing feeling. When done well a project is magic, looking very simple and intuitive on the surface but fascinatingly complex below.

I am originally from The Netherlands but now London based. I am reaching 10 years of industry experience in both digital/design agencies and early-stage startups. I love to work with a diverse set of people, clients and companies, every job and project should be unique and a great opportunity to learn more about the world and push myself.

Design

I have a varied background in design. With my skill set, working on data visualisation and generative art have been a natural match in the past. My interests are wide so in the last few years I have also been doing a lot of product design.
  • Ideation
  • Design thinking
  • Data visualisation
  • Generative & procedural design
  • UI / UX design
  • Product thinking
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Figma, Sketch and Adobe CS

Technology

This is where projects really come to life and can feel magical. In the past, I have worked a lot on bespoke interactive experiences with data visualisations and 3D WebGL pieces. Next to this, I have a lot of experience in developing products with frameworks like ReactJS.
  • Javascript / Typescript
  • ReactJS & Next
  • WebGL & GLSL
  • ThreeJS
  • D3
  • NodeJS ecosystem
  • CI / CD
  • AWS
  • Data analysis
  • Geospatial data

Collaboration

No project is ever really done on one's own. Collaboration is always key to success. It's therefore important to create a good team culture where everyone can thrive.
  • (Self) leadership
  • Team culture
  • Process setup & management
  • Workshop facilitation
  • Early stage start-ups
  • Agile methodologies
