Jerry de Vos
As a young kid I was always tinkering and making things, I glued small magnets on toy cars to make more efficient cars and at the age of 6 I drew my first perspective drawing. Educated as a product designer I love to come up with new crazy but innovative ideas, from windmills in pylons to giving someone a voice by throwing garbage. By turning these ideas into prototypes the true value of the idea appears and gets shape. Designing these prototypes into sustainable products takes a whole other approach, a path which is also familiar for me. By traveling, unscrewing everything I can lay my hands on and by showing persistence I try to satisfy my hunt for the unknown. Jerry de Vos Thinker, designer, maker.

I have always been curious how things work.
a 90's kid.
Always busy thinking of new, strange, beautiful and fun ideas. Transforming a shippingcontainer to a workspace, making sheets from recycled plastic or changing waste in a way of voting. Go to case
At a regular day my minds has lots of ideas, but which one is the best? Which one is plausible? By making proofs of concepts ideas can change into inventions. There is noting that says more as a real physical object, proving its use and letting the idea speak for itself. Go to case
Ease in an instant, life is getting easier with the newest products. First there was the remote for the TV, then there was a remote for anything and now we are connecting everything to the internet so each product can talk to each other and we can control everything by our smartphones. Go to case
Designing a new product is one thing, but making it capable of rolling out of the machine in the factory is a whole new thing. It's the difference between papers with a staple in it or a nicely bonded book. It's in the details like Moldflow simulations, stress strain calculations, FEM analyses, material selection, tolerances, surface finish etc. Go to case
For the launch of Precious Plastic version 3 we wanted to showcase that you can also make very precise objects from recycled plastic. Thanks to my knowledge of production methods I designed a iPhone case, a mold to make the case which was later milled by 3D hubs. Read more
Helped with the realisation of the Ecozuil, a project by friend and colleague Hylke van de Kamp, the Ecozuil helps to create awareness about plastic pollution. I was responsible for the electronics in the Ecozuil, this made the Ecozuil interactive with touch sensors, lights and audio. Read more
First year Industrial design assignment: Make a seating object from a piece of cardboard. I made a festival chair which is easy to carry, easy to customize, handy for a nice rest and fun to take home. Read more
