I’ve been working with printed matter and graphic elements for a long time. Nowadays I’m an experienced webdesigner too.
But this hasn’t limited me. I’ve also started up an award-winning hostel on a boat.
The goal for me is always to create visual experiences that leave the user feeling satisfied.
I like to say, in me you have a competent and trend-sensitive visual designer.
This is my workflow
The content of the modules for Print and User Interface differs in some parts but the principle is the same.
It’s all about interaction.
The aim of my work is always to make it easier for the recipients to satisfy their needs.
During the start-up of the project, I need to get to know the client and understand what they want to achieve. Together we go through the current situation and the challenges they face.
I collect the texts and images to be included and obtain the graphic profile, if any.
I also need to define the recipient, understand their needs and map the current situation.
Based on the evidence I have gathered, I sketch a wireframe of what a design might look like that satisfies the recipient or user and achieves the client's purpose.
These sketches are worked on in various stages from pure sketches to prototypes, together with the client and sometimes with representatives from the beneficiaries.
Once the flows and functions are defined, I lay the foundations for the final product.
For a website, I lay the foundations in WordPress and choose plugins that correspond to the functions found.
For a printed product, I choose the most suitable format and paper quality.
This stage can vary in extent depending on the nature of the project or the budget.
In my design work, I start from what the visual should convey. I determine the layout, colours and fonts.
I provide the direction of texts and images that may be needed to complete the result.
To enhance the experience, I work out details and aesthetic flows.
Once the web design is complete and all pages are developed in WordPress, the client receives a link to the final preview. We go through and adjust details for perfect results.
Then the client gets to approve the results and I do a final check before the site goes live.
To finish, I give it the necessary optimization for Google.
Once the print original is ready, the client gets to go through one last time and approve the final version. I send the print file to the printer and then get a proof to approve.
To achieve the best results and to work efficiently, I use the latest software tools for the purpose.
My goal is to give visitors and users a sense of satisfaction.
Through experiences with eye and mind.
As a visual designer, I create experiences for the eye and the mind.
