After graduating from gymnasium in 2012 I decided to study Communication & Multimedia Design at The Hague University. Visual, interaction and user experience design are the keywords of my study. Though, I have also learned to develop communication strategies and develop in HTML/CSS/JS[jQ]. There were some notable highlights during my studies. I won an expert jury prize for the best online portfolio of all first year students, passed my propaedeutic year with distinction, and founded my own webdesign company. A leading Dutch digital agency (Tam Tam) offered me a visual and interaction design internship, where I improved my visual, conceptual and interaction design skills. In 2015 I was selected to participate in the national talent programme for digital design students, organised by the leading sector association Dutch Digital Agencies (DDA). I trained my skills in multidisciplinary team work, creativity and (disruptive) service design within this programme. In my last year I was an Austauschstudent - in yes - Germany😋 ! I studied as an exchange student at the Stuttgart Media University, where I focused on brand experience, marketing and creating concepts (both in German and English). In 2016 I graduated in The Netherlands with a project where I made a user-friendly platform to read out measurements from smart-city sensors.

About Jarwa Webdesign To kickstart the foundation of my own company I attended a master class programme for young entrepreneurs, called "De Zomerondernemer" (The Young Entrepreneur). During this summerschool I participated in masterclasses regarding tax authorities, the chamber of commerce and marketing. I don't like templates, so I don't use them for any customer. I design things 100% by myself.
Jarwa Webdesign (Menno) designed a website for me which I'm very proud of, and receive a lot of compliments about. The reason for me to work with him was his creativity and attention to details. Those are, in my opinion, aspects you can only learn limited. Those skills are present naturally by Menno. With his involvement, Menno also shows a lot of initiative, and is focused on a high quality result. He's not afraid to do the work for that. He, for example, started to search for future users for my website to get more feeling with the target audience.
