ALLROUND 3D-DESIGNER SPECIALIZED IN CONCEPTS, RETAIL & INTERIOR (PRODUCTS) 

DESIGN THOUGHTS

Good design is a concerned product of the mind and the heart. A creative concept combined with clear functionality and new aesthetics will result in characteristic products with an emotional surplus value. These products will concern a strong relation to the user.

We can use design as a tool to speak a universal language which can inspire people, connect groups and give meaning to the world around us in three steps: dream, create and design. In other words: dreams create design.

THE PERSONAL DESIGNER

I am  Vincent, a personal designer. My passion lies in designing interior(concepts): spaces and products with character and experience. Experience is the magic word these days, but for me it's about both functional and emotional interaction and connecting people with my designs. My autonomous projects or concepts, will give you more insight in my way of working and will show more about me as a person and designer.

More about me, if you have to compare me to an animal, it will be a Golden Retriever. I am intuitive, cheerful, loyal and actually love all the aspects of my work. I run (sometimes a little too long) after the proverbial stick and explore the entire playground called design. My strengths are my strong work ethic, passion and precision. I can be very happy at making a technical drawing ("Find stick"), but I can also lose myself in a good sketch session. Because I'm schooled as a creative and industrial designer I'm comfortable with all the stages of product design including of the production stage. I know how to use a hammer or saw.  Before I'm going to present you all my 'achievements' and some numbers, I'll take some time to show you more about me and what drives me.
