My name is Tessa van den Brink and I’m a 25 year old graphic- and experience designer. In June 2014 I graduated at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht and got my Bachelor of Design. Afterwards I have been following an accelerated Master Experience Designer at Hyper Island in Amsterdam. After graduating I’ve worked for DSTNY as an experience designer where I had to take care of doing research, design (graphic as well as User Interface), content and social media (marketing).
One year later I decided to take it to the next level – so I started my own graphic & experience design company, in which I can fulfill my passion for concepting and designing. Not long after that, my other passion – which is facilitating learning processes for others – got fulfilled too, together with two other former classmates we founded unfold. A company that facilitates creative- and team culture centered workshops as an antidote to the way work works right now.
Over the past few years I’ve gained a lot of experience working for start-ups, freelancers and also bigger companies and clients like; SONY, Radio 538, Radio 10, SkyRadio, Radio Veronica, Google, KLM, Etos and Philips. I would love to get in contact with new clients to use and share this experience with you in your challenge!
I believe a good design needs to have an even better concept that exists out of human centered research and a real user need. That's why one of my main focusses - during a design proces - is concepting.
I think that being able to communicate with people through design is extremely important; I think the most valuable skill for a designer is to be able to make things look, sound or be simpler and easier to understand by a good design.
I want to give people an experience and take them on a journey. My vision is that design can be an important way to bring a concept, a brand or an idea to life.
