What is something you will never hear me say?
"Let's try Comic Sans here."
“It’s my portfolio it’s done!”
“Oh yeah, it’s okay when it’s not aligned.”
Correct. I'm a designer.
Graphic design is my passion.
But I can do more.
I can collect insights that are clearly founded on research-based results demonstrating an understanding of the problem space and empathy with users and other stakeholders.
I am able to design a fitting solution for the design challenge, based on user research and requirements of the client.
I’m able to work independently and iteratively through the design thinking process (Understand, Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test). I know when to jump between the stages of the process to investigate opportunities and improve on solutions.
My name is Sophie, but you probably guessed that from the logo. I am a UX designer / User Researcher and graphic designer from Amsterdam.
During my study Communication and Multimedia Design, I gained a lot of experience as a designer within various agencies - I worked for PostNL, InShared, and Dynasource, among others. After graduating, I travelled to Australia, where I worked as a freelancer in Melbourne and Sydney for six months.
I am now back in my ever “vibrant” home town and I am looking for a new challenge :) I would prefer to work as a graphic designer or User Researcher in a nice team.
What others say
Proposition visualisation Gradient
For my thesis, I made a visualisation of the proposition of Gradient - a digital agency I worked at the time.
A lot of employees and the management team weren't on the same page anymore about what it is that Gradient does, or who does what, or how it all works together. This was caused by a lot of internal changes and a new company strategy - with just a few communication errors in between.
To get everyone on the same page again, I did a lot of user research and visualised the outcome in an interactive prototype (see video).
Eventhough it was a very though challenge I got rewarded with 9/10 points at the end.
