User Interface Design

Welcome to my website and interface design portfolio

After finishing my studies as user experience designer and interface designer I have been working on several projects in website and app design.

On this part of my website I want to show you some of the designs I have made.

 

Interface Design

My interest in interface design lies in the integration of screens and other more intelligent ways people can interact with products.

Being schooled as industrial product designer the interaction between people and products has always been a key factor to my work. The relation and expectations people have regarding a product will shape their behaviour and successful use of the product and ultimately their satisfaction and willingness to use the product again.

 Within the field of interface design these factors are even stronger. Especially with no physical product to back up the look and feel the design of the interface must be practical, logical and functional as well as communicate the look and feel of the product it is or in case of a website the company it represents

For me interface design and the research and testing that is needed to create the best possible solution for the task is both interesting and challenging. I give me great satisfaction to work in this field.  

Website Design

Dutch school Brisbane

During this project I designed a new website for the Duyfkensschool the Dutch school in Brisbane.

My role was to investigate the wishes and demands from all stake holders.

I have interviewed staff, the board and parents of the Duyfkensschool.

Based on my findings I have created a list of requirements for the design of the website.

I created a design for the website and have tested this with users and staff members.

When the design was optimized and approved by the board I have designed and built the website.

The website was built using WordPress, Divi, HTML, CSS and Javascript.

Black Sheep Bistro

During this project I was working for Moolah Digital

The scope of the project was to redesign the website for a bistro restaurant.

My role was to help design, and build sections of the website.

I created the menu pages using CSS and jQuery.

I especially spend time designing and building the foldout menu section. This is a feature that allows for information to be presented to the users only when they are looking for it. This section works very well and we used it for many other projects since then.

The page is built with WordPress and the Divi theme is used.

Music store

During this project I was working for Moolah Digital

The scope of the project was to redesign the website for a music store that sells and repairs musical instruments.

My role was to design, and build sections of the website and update the web store build with

Shopify.

I also added graphical design elements using Javascript/jQuery

The website is built using WordPress and the Divi builder.

Camping website

User experience research and website design

The aim for this project was to create a website for a camping site that would make the process of finding a camping spot and making a booking easier for users.

In order to give the users the best experience possible I started the project with user interviews.

Based on the interviews I created personas, a list of requirements, a mapping of the process users go through before deciding on and booking a camping spot.

I have created wireframes and prototypes of a number of concepts for the booking section.

I have used the prototypes

to conduct user research to get a better understanding of the booking process and find ways to improve upon the developed concepts.

I created a website design that incorporated the findings from earlier user research.

SocialUs

My first project for Moolah Digital.

During this project I helped design and built sections of the website.

The colour scheme, photo’s and copy were already been developed by others.

The website is built using WordPress and the Divi builder.

Auto mechanics

During this project I was working for Moolah Digital

The scope of the project was to redesign the website for a bistro restaurant.

My role was to design, and build sections of the website.

The result is a simple website that is easy to navigate and that expresses the essence of the company. The website holds all information customers need to make a booking or a request for information in an easy approachable way.

The website is built using WordPress and the Divi builder.

App Design

We are Our Street

During this project I have conducted user experience research on the way people interact with the neighbourhood they live in and how this could be enhanced by using an app.

The main findings of my research were; people would like to know the people in their surroundings to feel safer but are also very much afraid of losing their privacy and are afraid that this will turn against them.

 

I translated my findings into an app that is aimed in getting people to know each other but only in their direct surroundings protecting their privacy as much as possible.

I have created prototypes for different tasks / workflows of the app and conducted user testing with a small group of users. In an iterative process I have optimised the design using my finding of the testing sessions.

I created a high fidelity model of the app design accompanied by a basic site map and a set of annotated wireframes.

Graphic Design

I am proud to be the designer of Kookie the New Farm State School Mascot. Kookie has been brought to life in the form of a Kookie costume. Kookie is prominent on school posters placed around the school grounds. Kookie is also the name giver of the school awards. Yes the Kookie Awards.
