Good design is long-lasting. It avoids being fashionable and therefore never appears antiquated. Unlike fashionable design, it lasts many years – even in today’s throwaway society.
— Dieter Rams

 

Dutch Design

After cutting my teeth in Dutch Design at Solar Initiative in Amsterdam, I co-found the design studio Hexaplex in 2007. It was a collaboration with Micha Bakker, that explored the emerging field of web design and user experience. We worked closely with our clients in a vibrant international network, resulting in new forms of bespoke web design. Clients and collaborations included: STBY: Design Research for Service Innovation, NS/Dutch National Rail, The Royal Palace Amsterdam, Telefonica, & Dutch Design Week.

Brighton Beach

It was at Brighton Beach I spent a good 6 years working on the design of a platform used by over 500 brands, in multiple languages to clients in 14 countries. The platform is relied upon by publishers and recruitment businesses including The GuardianWashington PostFT.com and Manpower.
