About a year ago I was just a guy that recently graduated his design studies. I’ve done some projects, shared them on my Dreamweaver-build website and occasionally on Social Media. I had about 200 followers.
I’m a forgetful person. Everywhere I go I’ll carry my backpack along with me. 90% of the things I need on a daily routine are in there. Cables, cards, harddisk, laptop, charger, camera. Carrying them always with me means (mostly likely) I don’t forget things. Having a decent backpack is key for me. So i’m damn serious about it.
Repairing things, this used to be a way to keep our products longer. Adding a new shoe sole, use some glue to fix broken ceramic, stitch the hole in your shirt. Professions like shoemakers are slowly fading away and we, well, we just became to lazy to fix it ourselves. Broken baskets, fans, clothes, coffee machines, toys all end up on the junkyard. Just because they are a bit crippled.
Made this video about Design Academy Eindhoven together with Pim and Luc.
We went to see the progress of the Ara prototype. Here is an update video to show you how it looks.
We had a great time repairing junk with this gang, 謝謝
Over the last year I’ve been traveling a lot. One of the reasons is shooting videos all over the place. Shooting videos means carrying gear along with you. Camera, microphone, charger, hard-disc, phone and so forth. I got used to the gear, but get annoyed by carrying all the long charging cables with me. Either I forget to pack one, or they are tangled up into a big chunk at arrival. Read full story. →
Won the Dutch Design Young-talent award!
I often get this question:
“By sharing your ideas openly aren’t you afraid they get copied?”
Well i’ve always been a big fan of publishing the ideas you create, sharing it online. I’ve started doing this at design-school. It always motivated me to gather feedback from the real world, not only people in the design-bubble.
Honored to share my thoughts with Dutch students in this text-book about identity and image #hetmerkvoorbij
Love this animated gif that Jeroen Krielaars made. Click to watch it go!

The thing that excites me about the internet is that you can easily share things. Tutorials, reviews, tricks, hacks. Share the things you’ve spend hours on learning so others don’t have to re-do everything you’ve already done. I’m grateful when someones shares an in depth product-review, dives into a problem and shares the solution or shows an inspiring DIY project.
