On this page: My Vision | Key facts | Skills and Qualities | Awards | Used Software My Vision

  - Achieving a perfect combination between form (aesthetics) and function (usability) is a passion that goes beyond the purely professional.
  - Readability, scannability, accessibility and usability are just as important in webdesign and Graphical Interface Design as composition, colour, whitespace, contrast and shape.
  - A real web/interface designer distinguishes himself not by how intricate his design is, but by how he uses a few key elements in his design to achieve optimal results.

Personal qualities
To get an idea about my personality and how it is to work with me, you could read recommendations written by colleagues and clients. That's probably more useful than what my subjective self image makes me write about myself here below:

  - Autonomous yet Team player.
  - Bionic eyes with integrated pixel rulers (eye for detail).
  - Not a diva designer.
  - I can handle constructive criticism (and give it as well).
  - Always open to new and interesting ideas.
  - Proactive.
  - Not afraid to challenge ideas, but always ready to accept better ones.
  - Chocolate addict (just don't feed the animal).

Visit the 'Endorsements' page to find out if the claims I made (in my long CV) are just boasts of an oversize ego or if they are also seconded by colleagues and clients.
