I began designing professionally for the Web and for print in 2006. Working for numerous clients with very different needs and demands, I have learned that design does sell and that style indeed is everything.
However, I believe that what the audience really came for is information. It is my prime objective to deliver that information in an efficient and visually pleasing way. In doing so, I preferably follow the modernist principle “less is more”.
This portfolio contains a selection of works which may give an impression of my style. If you are interested in my services, I will be glad to perform a free and non-binding analysis of your needs and propose a suitable solution.
The websites I build have a lifetime guarantee regarding their technical structure and compatibility with the major browsers.
In other words: if any technical corrections should be required after the product has been delivered, I will make them at no cost.
