As freelance Design & Innovation Consultant, AG, I am part of the dutch design collective called Mana. At one day, I hope to become at the forefront of nearly every major design innovation project. 

My Mission

While exposed to the creative process, I shine in human focused innovation and experience strategy. Translating abstract strategies into tangible experiences and actionable tools for design and development. 

I aim for putting human research at the heart of the design process, purposely to help organizations in the public and private sectors to innovate and grow in durable manner. By uncovering peoples’ needs, behaviors, and desires I identify new ways to support and stimulate people. This helps organizations build creative culture and the required systems to sustain innovation. Creating innovative concepts that enhance visions of beauty, inspiration and culture, moreover, open doors in society.  

Within my work various design disciplines meet. Three main disciplines can be distinguished:
- Interaction design & Experience design
- Service design & Content strategy
- Design Research
