ABOUT

MY JOURNEY

It all started when I first sat behind a Commodore 64 in 1985. I copied my first game from a book, and drew with asci code. Read here what happened after that.

About me

I am Stefan, born in 1980 in Alphen aan den Rijn. At an early age, it became clear to me that all I needed was a pencil and a piece of paper to entertain myself. My notebook became a comic book and my math book a work of art. After elementary school I went into the graphic arts. I did not have the ambition to work in a printing office but had the idea to go to the Grafisch Lyceum in Rotterdam.
There I successfully completed the training in “Multi Media Design”. Already during my internship I was allowed to work on big names and I got the chance to participate in the first online communities. I worked on, CDI, websites, animations, videos, apps, etc. My creativity knows no limits. Some people are proud to say they think “out of the box”. But to me there is no box at all. Creativity knows no box at all. I love to think in concepts, especially when I’ve come up with them myself. In recent years I have developed a lot in the field of online marketing. Mainly in the creative area.
That same creativity does not stop at 18:00. Besides my healthy lifestyle and sports, I love to draw. I make paintings, and sometimes I put a tattoo on someone’s body. Together with my kids we build awesome cos plays and collect everything around the “Pop Culture” from the eighties.

 

These are the tools and software

I can't live without

Director SMART Digital Factory Tooling

Stefan is een van de meest briljante designers die ik ken. Geef Stefan de ruimte en zijn creativiteit en gedrevenheid kent geen grenzen. Zowel UX, UI als ideeën voor branding of de gaafste ideeën voor evenementen, het maakt eigenlijk niet uit. Niet minder belangrijk is zijn bijdrage in het team. Hij zorgt voor binding, staat voor iedereen klaar en maakt van elke dag een feestje!

UX/UI Designer

I had the pleasure of working with Stefan for three years at Mansystems, as design colleagues. Stefan has a very creative mind. He thinks about things that the rest of us overlook. As a result, he has led the marketing and branding team to discover deeper insights that led to successful projects. Stefan is an identity branding champion. His design work is complemented by his creative insight, his enthusiasm, and design skills. Stefan would be an asset to any company.

User Experience Designer

Stefan is probably one of the most creative mind I had pleasure meeting and working with. During work he's a creative whirlwind with ideas, sketches and designs. Gives new perspective to a briefing/project and making the best of the project in a way u won't expect. Truly a good colleague to work with, never a dull moment but a hard worker when it's needed.

Delivery Manager and Team Lead

I have been able to work with Stefan during various projects and pre-sales processes. Stefan is super creative and knows better than anyone how to be innovative and still retain the identity of an organization. His UX / UI elaborations, videos, event initiatives have been of great value. Stefan knows how to add the WOW factor to every initiative!
