Our world is accelerating, driven by an inexorable technology push. Therefore, designers have to operate multidisciplinary - to achieve top-notch design solutions for making a product functional, desirable and durable.
How do I define myself as a designer? What drives me as a designer? Summarized in a nutshell my 5 "design drivers" embrace attributes which have kept fueling my curiosity about design. Technology enables innovation, but the designer creates value - by making technological innovation accessible in the most appealing way possible. Throughout my education, I developed a fascination for the segment of premium products. Understanding the potential of technology to 'embody desire' in form of a functional product is my mission as a designer. I surrounded myself in technical environments throughout my studies, to empower my design approach with knowledge of emerging technologies and engineering skills.
My design process offers me a guideline to create and channel value.
Founded on my education and working experience in a multidisciplinary field, several aspects have shown to be essential for my personal design process. The graphic below offers a glimpse into my workflow as a designer and is based on the "Double Diamond" (British Design Council, 2005). My design process offers me a guideline to create and channel value through diversion, conversion, and iteration. Hereby, the ability to create new immersive contexts is key to generate true value.
