About me



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.

"Think hard, work harder" - Jerry de Vos



Core competencies


Idea generation

Always busy thinking of new, strange, beautiful and fun ideas. Solar panels in power poles, wireless USB-sticks or changing waste in a way of voting.

Go to case

Proof of concept

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

Connected products

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

Manufacturing for production

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

Cases

Wastebattle


A think tank project about how to reduce litter. By making the action of throwing trash fun and interactive people tend to use the trashcan more often. By putting a trashcan ,that can keep score of two holes, in a public space you can ask people about their opinions and they are nudged to throw their trash in the trashcan instead of littering. Place it at a soccer match, ask which team is better and people are less likely to litter but more likely to throw it in the trashcan. Sometimes causing a race to collect more trash.
