In 2012 we worked on The Next Web to redesign it into this new modern jacket. We were responsible for the design, UX and aided in front-end implementation.
In 2015, we added this animation is multiple languages to the fishisfast.com website, explaining the basic principle of using the product in a few seconds, even for mobile users.
A picture says more than a thousand words. So why would you bore your visitors with a million lines of hard-to-focus-on text? Instead, why don't you show your visitors how your product works? We can build entire tech demos right into your homepage so visitors are engaged and understand your product immediately.
In 2013, we redesigned Statwing making this awesome product even more intuitive to use. The front page now shows a small demo of their product which is fun to use and simple to understand. We were responsible for the design, UX and front-end implementation.
I have been tinkering with making it easier for people to interact with computers since 2001. My custom themes and icons for Windows & Mac have been featured in magazines the world over, the success of which drew me to illustration and Software Interface Design.
In 2008 I won the May1stReboot Web Design Contest and that site was featured as an example in Designing a Digital Portfolio by Cynthia Baron.
In 2012 graduated college in Holland as a Multimedia Designer after completing my internship with Livestream in New York, an experience that turned me on to travel for life.
Over time I discovered design in the hands of engineers never translated to great code, prompting me to start programming that markup myself, landing me a job as Design Lead on the 2013 The Next Web redesign.
After a brush with IT during my studies, I decided to shift my focus towards web development upon graduating.
Having taught myself Front-end, Swift and Rails, I joined Superpencil in 2015 to support Pascal with development.
I am known, loved and feared for my analytical mind. I love broadening my horizon, be it with the help of art, travel or simply profound conversation.
With over 35 years of experience my love for programming in the trenches has never waned. I’ve had opportunities to work with a wide variety of clients and technical environments. My desire to solve problems has led me to continuously seek new challenges and to stay current in my chosen profession.
Working with my clients, I learn their requirements, identify options, and map out workable solutions. Respecting the time and resources available, I plan out each aspect of a project and ensure that the deliverables are effective, clean & efficient. When programming for business, it’s not just solving a problem, it’s ensuring that the solution can be maintained and evolve.
Over time, I’ve had the opportunity to work with and learn from a fascinating variety of professionals from various countries & cultures. Everyone of them has helped me evolve and to hone my craft.

He's in his final year of a BSc in Information Technology. Working with us while taking his university courses, he's a great addition to the team.
Superpencil helped us completely overhaul our app. We were using an old framework that had been hacked to pieces over the years. Not only were they able to put a new face on it, but helped us unify the front-end code for consistency and easy updates later.
They took personal interest in our project right away and invested time and effort into understanding how our product works before making any decisions that would affect the design.
