Hello, I'm Cindy, a UI/UX designer and illustrator from Amsterdam, living in Zurich. I strive to create concept-driven work, to tell stories that encourage curiosity, and to keep an open mind.
Studied graphic design at the art academy in the Netherlands. Subsequently worked for different design agencies, such as Edenspiekermann and Claessens Erdmann Design. Until her passion for mountaineering lead her to Switzerland, she pursued her career as an independent designer in Amsterdam. Loves to draw comics and is a passionate speed skater.
In the beginning of my career it was all about aesthetics and functionality, or simply making a bold statement. Now, in the ever growing labyrinth of information, it’s more about not getting lost. I like doing research, organizing information, and creating user journeys, tests, personas, wireframes, prototypes, visual designs, until a product makes sense. Simplexity is key.
