Me.

I'm a designer & developer from the Netherlands. Mostly I do web stuff, creating websites and webapps. I design, and do front- & back-end development. I'm not afraid to learn. Most of all I like to create, how, what and which tools doesn't matter that much..

When I'm not working I like to play my guitar(s) and sing some songs.

Fontys Factory CadWalk

Fontys Factory CadWalk

Before you can enter the big catwalk for your fifteen minutes of fame, the friendly lady behind the counter asks you to sign a release. Without thinking you sign it because you do it all the time.

A nice lady comes to guide you to the catwalk. The music starts and the mood changes. The nice lady isn't nice anymore and gives you instructions. You walk from station to station not knowing what's happening, pictures are taken, you turn around on a rotating platform.. When you walk towards the end you can see it. Your profile: your pictures, your weight, height, BMI, strength, color pallet, emotion and some more.

Then you get the choice, buy my info back for whatever you think it's worth, or give the rights away and let us do whatever we want with it. A little scared you decide to buy it back..

The concept

The project was a way of bringing the online privacy debate to the physical world. Online you give your information away without even thinking about it. The catwalk was a way to make this physical.

The Project

The project was built in under two months. We, the Unalom team (ICT & Media Design students) and students from ArtCoDe (Art, communication and Design) worked together to realize this project. We did the technical part of measuring everything possible, and they did the design and animations.

It was displayed at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven.

My role

I worked on the fourth station where we created a visual profile. We gathered three things, a color pallet, detail photos (little buttons, watch, rings etc.). I mostly worked on the color pallet. The software was written in Python, it took a full body shot, which was stripped from the background and analysed to create a pallet of five colors. The software I wrote also gathered cropped and re-sized the detail photos. Besides my own station I was an all round programming dude on the project and wrote some little Python tools for other stations.

All data collected was stored as separate files. They had to be combined in to one image so we could send it to the people. To do this, I wrote again a Python script. This script also generated statistics and totals (used in the second video).

Unalom

Unalom

At our university there is an excellence program for ICT & Media Design students called "Delta". Every year a new group starts with a first assignment: create your own identity. We chose the name Unalom after a Buddhist symbol.

I was part of the group that created the website. I was involved in creating the concept and wire-frames and eventually coded the actual website.

Because the website is our way to present the team it had to show of what we're capable of. The team page slider was one way of doing this. It is build with JavaScript/jQuery and jQuery UI for the dragging capabilities. The site if fully responsive.

Per Person

This was a school assignment for the subject "Data visualization" at Fontys ICT & Media Design. The assignment was to visualize an existing data-set.

Per Person

Concept

The concept I came up with is called "Per Person". I've combined multiple data-sets in one visualization showing little facts like for example water usage and motorized vehicles per person. What makes it interesting is the ability to compare countries. By the data you get you can see for example the differences in welfare, or how big a country is.

Realization

It was built using PHP and JavaScript, and of course HTML & CSS. As part of the assignment we had to build a PHP dashboard where you could manage the data-sets, the data is fed into the visualization by a self- build API. You can add and update any of the data.

Mark'd

Mark'd

Mark'd is a project we're currently developing with the Unalom team. I'm managing this project. It's going to be a platform to make it easier to give feedback on presentations. We're focusing mostly on education.

Flow

The teacher uses his laptop webcam to record a presentation. He/she can use his smartphone or tablet to control the laptop and record markers on the moment they want to give some feedback. After the presentation they fill the markers with feedback. A student can watch his presentation back with the feedback.

Tech

The recording part is done with JavaScript and WebRTC. The connection between the laptop and the smartphone is done with Node.js and sockets. To store and process the videos we use a Kaltura Streaming server.

Nienke

The website for Nienke, a singer songwriter was built with WordPress as CMS. The whole design was based on one flyer designed by a media agency. The goal of the site was to show her clips and music, and keep people informed.

Hadassah is an artist from Heerlen (The Netherlands). She had a site, but it wasn't responsive and didn't have a CMS. Also, the usability wasn't that good.

I rebuild the site from scratch, adding WordPress CMS, and making it fully responsive. The gallery page is the most important since it shows her work. The main focus was on showing of her work in the best way possible and making it user-friendly, also she wanted to be able to easily upload new content. I've created a custom WordPress plugin to make it easy to maintain the page, with JavaScript/jQuery I've created a user-friendly responsive gallery.

This was the first assignment I got when I started the study ICT & Media Design. We needed to make a website for the programme to show new students what it was about.

I created this one page website, within the center the self designed logo, The content surrounds it. When you scroll the logo stays in place and the content changes.

PROreact is a research project on reintegration. I was hired to create the website, and consult on the print graphics. When I submitted a logo idea because the other options weren't that good in my opinion, I got the assignment to also design the logo.

It was an interesting project because there were many parties involved including universities, research bureaus and local governments. They all needed to agree with my designs and work. I learned a lot from this project.

Dimics

In high school I was creating websites as a hobby. Everything I learned was from online (video) tutorials. A good friend of mine, Max Scheijen, was doing 3D modeling and video editing. Together we came up with the idea to start a tutorial blog, passing on the knowledge we gathered from the internet, Dimics was born.

In about a week I designed and programmed the Dimics WordPress theme and we started creating tutorials. We managed to get good traffic in our first few months by submitting our tutorials to some tutorial sites. Unfortunately we got to busy with school and stopped creating content.

Now, five years later, we are going to revive Dimics.
