About Me

Hi there!

I'm an aspiring developer and designer of digital products. In short, I both design and program stuff like Websites and Mobile Apps. I usually prefer working with JavaScript for both frond-end and back-end (node) and I'm currently interested in picking up REACT Native and even more Node.js

For my design Skills, I think Photoshop and Illustrator are fine, but I personally prefer Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. When it comes to motion graphics though, Adobe After Effects and Cinema 4D will always be King for me.

 

Projects

Motorshop.be

For this project I'm currently working on building and expanding a custom made CMS. So far I've written all the necessary API code and both Back-End en Front-End modules to manage products, categories and images. Next on the list is the ability to create custom pages from combining editable modules. The CMS relies heavily on PHP, MySQL and JavaScript.

The Story of Schiedam

An international collaboration between students of Devine from Belgium and students Cross Media Development from the Netherlands. To blow new life into the old town of "Schiedam" (Netherlands), we designed and prototyped an experience where you could follow one long road and interact with stationary screens with your smartphone to audiovisually uncover the rich history of the town.

Ketnet Summer Rebrand

A rebranding exercise I did as an assignment by Devine. The idea was to restyle the current 2D branding with more seasonal, 3D animations. The rebrand video has:

A 3D and 2D summer styled Logo Animation buildup (0:03), an 'Evening Overview' of all the programs for that night (0:18), an 'Overlay Bumber' indicating the current and following programmes (0:41), a Montage of all the new programmes and seasons this summer (1:05), and a 'Secret Feature' (1:37).

Campaign for Boek.be

A collaboration with fellow Devine student Jasper Van Damme. Together we worked on an assignment that required a front-end website that allowed teachers and schools to submit revisions of "A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy", and a REACT back-end where the Boek.be staff could read and score these revisions. While we both worked on the concept, structure and design, Jasper brought our design together on the front-end while I coded most of the API and the REACT back-end.

Orange: Netverse

In 2015, Orange (the mobile company) came to visit us at Devine Howest, Belgium and together with our teachers explained that two of our main assignments would be part of a creative competition. The main thing asked of us was to "Help visualize the network". This is the result.

Funkydata: Mathillustrations

A creative programming assignment for Devine. The idea was to take a dataset (in this case from IMDB) and turn it into mathematical drawings such as lemniscates and the more famous belgian superformula. The app was made OOP and MVC style with Processing.
