Hello, I’m Samantha, a 22 year old, born and raised in Utrecht now living in Eindhoven to study Industrial Design and currently in the final phase of my bachelor.
I love being creative, tinkering, using my imagination, traveling and playing with the world around me. It does not take a lot to trigger my curiosity and find a design opportunity.
I approach my projects in a practical way. I start of by analyzing and exploring the situation, trying to see it from different angles, in order to decide where the design opportunities lie. Once I have chosen a design opportunity to work on the real work starts.
On the one hand I am a very practical, straightforward person, on the other hand I am a playful individual with a lot of imagination. This combination gives interesting results.
I do a lot of tinkering and hands on work and always try to make things work. Because what is the point if you can’t even interact with your designs? Tinkering is something which I love doing and it makes me happy to see the ideas in my head become reality.
Making playful designs is something important to me, playfulness makes it fun and entertaining to interact with a product while in the background the more serious goals are developed.
I’m a practical person who wants to design, playful, interactive products. It makes life easier.
