who is kees the personable person?
who is kees the industrial designer

the longer version

It is often the mark of an industrial designer to have a deep interest in cars or shoes; I could not care less about either of them.

What I do care about  is the methodology of design: the process in which we take complicated, often multifaceted, problems and break them down into solvable steps that ‘make sense’. For me effective design solutions come from the fine balance between creative insight and logical reasoning.

My method of design  is that of ‘design synthesis’; I love merging knowledge from different fields. Because of this practice, I often act as the coordinator in group projects, focusing on my ability to quickly learn, understand, and then communicate ideas. My broad understanding of technical applications means I’m great at wearing a lot of hats, but my ability to shift my semantic perspective means I’m even better at wearing a lot of shoes.

I work well in a team  that wants a balance between 'what if?' and 'why?' When it comes to ideas I specialize in divergent thinking and quality assessment. A logical out-of-the-box thinker, it’s strange I know. However, combine that with my diligence, and it makes for a steady production of insight and refinement.

Currently I am  pursuing work as a junior designer either full time or as an internship. If you’re someone who is looking for a curious young professional who can get the ball rolling, email me. I’d be happy to discuss how I can benefit your team.
