About me.

I don’t take life too seriously,
but I am dead serious about creating
great digital experiences 🙌
I don’t take life too seriously, but I am dead serious about creating great digital experiences 🙌

I’m a 30 year old designer based in Amsterdam, 2.01m tall and still growing (mentally). I enjoy the dynamic city life but I equally love the calm and quiet of the countryside. Current sports: squash and bouldering (climbing). I’m also a big fan of mixed martial arts (mma), though only as a spectator…

As a kid I loved to draw. Preferably all day long. And I still have that same passion for visual communication today. I love figuring out how to best convey a certain message, both in text and visually. I’m an out-of-the-box thinker, but I also advocate the value of design principles and a solid process.

I get most energy from working on projects with an inspiring vision.

What other people say.

"
Bas is a smart and creative designer with a great ability to find and solve design challenges. He is very ambitious and motivated. Very good communicator and team player. I can strongly recommend him for UX and UI roles.
"
Bas helped us with designs on two separate projects. He excels in both his creative and social skills and we have always experienced the collaboration as very pleasant. The designs and proposals he provides are well thought out, suiting the demand and adjustments are implemented quickly. He has strong theoretical knowledge, is well prepared and asks the right questions. We hope to work together more often in the future.
"
I had the pleasure of working with Bas on different projects, from digital interactive products to visualisation of more complex models. In all cases, Bas has proven to challenge me and himself to make the right thing. Open to share his thoughts and discuss and explain the choices he made.

Get in touch.
