My adventure in a nutshell
My resume can be downloaded here, only i want to tell you my story in a more personal way. To how i got my 24 year old but in Oslo, Norway looking for a job as UI & UX Designer.
Let's quickly go back to 2004 for a brief second, the web isn't that big yet, but i wanted to learn webdesign! Do you remember those small image signatures on the forums? I know. In the next years i teached myself to design websites, which came in handy when we started the Foundation Michael-Wings in 2006.
After a successful fundraising in 2005 for free wireless internet and laptops in a hospitals children department in Amsterdam, every hospital in Holland asked us to help them to. Now the foundation supplied over 16 hospitals and growing. This all thanks to one of my best friends Michael and his idea that we should be able to use internet in bed to communicate with friends and family.
In 2005 i went to the Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA) and followed Interactive Media for 4 years, where my passion for user experience grew. School was great but not enough, after my first internship i started my own company called Eyenox Media. A new way to create projects, communicate with clients, sharing the good feeling of success. It's a great feeling to help a client understand their communication with their users and help them to communicate a message. Where i get my pride to help them understand our profession without the fancy technical terms.
In 2009 friends of mine asked to help them out with a few webdesign projects and after a year they asked if i could join there company and start my own interactive media department. Two great years followed! Where clients small and big came by, my feeling that i wanted to go to another country stayed.
Thats why i am here in Norway looking for a awesome company to join as a UI / UX designer to learn new things and work on interactive projects from web to mobile. As you can read in my story, you'll know that i like to keep evolving and to grow in to the role of art director or creative director one day.

He's a very good designer who's well aware of the current possibilities in the online world. He has great communicative skills, and therefore would be a value to any team or project within his expertise.
I'll surely work with him again and offcourse recommend Robin highly!"
