During July, August and September 2017, I am working as a website developer at Studio Wasabi. I am occupated with a project where I get in touch with design, strategy and development. Studio Wasabi is a freelance agency in Antwerp.
I worked 1 day at In the Pocket for a little student job. I was responsible for the Virtual Reality corner on the event 'State of mobile'. My job was to introduce people into the virtual reality world.
I am in my third bachelor year Multimedia & Communication technology at Erasmus University College Brussels. In the second year, I chose to follow the specialisation 'Mobile app and web development', where I'm getting trained to become a web and app developer.
In my last semester, I will do an internship of 3 months at Conversal. This is a full web agency in Aalst, occupated with webdesign, web development, web hosting, web marketing, web advertising, SEO,...
During vacations, weekends and summer, I'm a waiter at the tapas restaurant Mimosa in Middelkerke. Working in this sector helped me a lot to become stress resistant and handle time pressure.
The last 2 years in high school, I studied Math and sciences with 8 hours of math and 4 hours of sciences a week. Engineering was a new course, which I had 2 hours a week. During this course, I was introduced into new domains, such as webdesign, eletrical circuits and more.
During the first 4 years in high school, I studied Latin and sciences at school. Latin helped me a lot to memorize and learn things in a better way. It made me a well motivated student!
Together with Sam Goeman, I created the new website for Jay Baker. Jay Baker is a 19 years old deejay and producer. He wanted something new to show off with. As a friend, we were hired to design and develop a whole new website. We created the website from A to Z.
A custom CMS module was made in php so that Jay Baker is able to update his calendar items and picture gallery.
In my webshop there is the possibility to view products and get detailed information about each product. When you're interested in a product, simply place it in your shopping cart and fill the cart as you like it. I also implemented a little system where users can leave a small review for each product. The last thing I implemented for the users is a personal client account with login. In this client area, users can manage their account/profile and overview their orders.
It was also necessary to create a CMS module, which make the admin able to manage the webshop very easily. In the admin CMS, you are able to manage, edit and create products, categories. There is also a small feature to overview and delete user reviews and manage the admin accounts.

Together with Sam Goeman, I created a new concept and branding for it. Our idea was to place an banner board with a red button next to it. People would be able to push the red button. After pushing the button, they would be projected on the banner board, using the Kinect technology. The person, who is standing in front of the banner board, can make movements, that will be projected on the screen. If they can collect 5 dots, the dots will be connected and the person will receive a free gift.
The assignment, for the course UX design, was to follow the whole UX proces to create a mobile application for the Atomium. I did a lot of research about the Atomium, created persona's, customer journeys and interviewed people during their visit. With all these information, I was able to think about a cool concept to work out.
When the concept and the application mockups were finished, I created two different longboards. On the 'design longboard', I listed some of my best mockups to explain the concept and the application. On the 'design proces' longboard, I described my UX proces from begin to end.
My application concept was to create an interactive tour guid, based on the user's interests. By working with beacons, the app would interact with the user's position and interests. There was also a possibility to solve little quizzes to earn coins. The more coins a visitor earned, the more profits he would receive on his next visit to the Atomium.
