User Experience Designer

About me

English / Nederlands

My name is Eric Janssen and I'm a 25-year-old User Experience Designer, graduated as a Bachelor of Science (Communication and Multimedia Design) at the University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam, The Netherlands. My main focus while designing pages for web or other applications, is the user. To have positive user feedback on your website or app means to have great thought through designs. And so usability is a big deal.

I've worked on several projects where using the actual target audience for usability testing revealed so much new and worthy information about how users navigate through your product. Sometimes, the smallest adjustment to a layout can completely change the way your users experience what you got to offer them.

No matter how well-trained your Front-End Developers or Visual Designers might be, you're going to need User Experience Designers to make your user base happy and thus make them come back for more.

Over mij

English / Nederlands

Mijn naam is Eric Janssen en ik ben een 25-jarige User Experience Designer, Bachelor of Science (Communication and Multimedia Design) aan de Hogeschool van Amsterdam. Waar ik mij vooral op richt tijdens het ontwerpen van pagina's voor het web of andere applicaties, is de gebruiker. Het bieden van een positieve gebruikerservaring op uw website of app vereist goed uitgedachte ontwerpen. Gebruiksvriendelijkheid is daarbij uiterst belangrijk.

Ik heb gewerkt aan verschillende projecten waarbij de werkelijke doelgroep aan de hand van gebruikerstesten met ontzettend veel nieuwe en waardevolle informatie komt, over hoe men navigeert door jouw product. Soms kan de kleinste aanpassing aan een indeling de gebruikerservaring compleet omgooien.

Hoe goed uw Front-End Developers of Visual Designers ook zijn, u heeft een User Experience Designer nodig om uw gebruikers tevreden te krijgen en zo terug te laten komen voor meer.

Design with basic Front-end knowledge

I'm able to communicate more precise with programmers, because of my ability to speak their language. Using technical terms, or even writing small pieces of code, makes it faster and easier to agree with what needs to happen. I got basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and Javascript, and got certificates to prove it. FYI, I also made this website from scratch.

Usability Testing

A UX Designer dares to take designs for a spin, by testing it with the target audience. You get the most valuable information just by watching the way people react to your work. A UX designer isn't happy until the users are. I've got experience applying several testing methods, using software like InVision and Adobe Fireworks.

Technology and science

I have a strong interest in technology and science. I try to keep up with all the new possibilities, gadgets and unique ways people use design to their advantage. I believe web design requires an up-to-date view of the current state of technology.
