After graduating from Gymnasium in 2012 I decided to study Communication & Multimediadesign at The Hague University. Visual, Interaction and User Experience Design are the keywords of my study. Though, I've also learned to develop communication strategies and develop in HTML/CSS/JS[jQ]. A lot has happened since 2012. My portfoliowebsite was chosen as favorite by an expert jury, during the first year's students presentations. I also have received my propaedeutics cum laude. I also started my own webdesign company, where I have worked on several cool projects. In 2013 I was a Visual- and Interaction Design intern at Tam Tam. In 2015 I participated in the INCMD-DDA talent programme, where I was able to attend 8 masterclasses at awesome companies. Then I was an Austauschstudent - in yes - Germany😋! I studied at the Hochschule der Medien in Stuttgart, where I focused on brand experience, marketing and concepting (both in German and English). After that 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 In 2012 I participated in a summer-school, De Zomerondernemer. This is a traject specifically for youths, who want to start their own company. I attended interesting courses about taxes, the chamber of commerce, and so on. Soon after that, Jarwa Webdesign was founded. I started my company with a mission: help small companies to be found online. Think about the café on the corner, or the fruit store next to your home. We also don't like templates: we design things 100% by ourselves.
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.
