Freelance projects

Besides my studies, I have done freelance work for various clients. I have created and developed over 30 websites for more than 20 clients. This is an overview of some of the projects I have worked on.

Learning experience

Being a freelancer gave me the opportunity to work for diverse clients and experience many different industries such as start-ups, non-profit, consulting firms, and agriculture. I led several design and branding projects from beginning till end and advised clients on design, UX, content, and storytelling. Working on these projects helped me to learn the full stack of web design. It was also a great way to deal with different situations and projects and to gain experience in programming and project management.

Design for different situations

A consultancy company in the education sector asked for a minimalistic website that should target an audience of teachers and education managers. I designed a minimalistic and colorful website with a strong focus on mobile UI:

De Onderwijsverbeteraars

A more complex project was the redesign of the website for Spirit, a sports club. In our first meeting, they asked for an updated, modern version of their current website, and I got a list of features they wanted to have. However, it soon became clear that the current website was very inefficient because it was dealing with lots of different systems, and many people were involved in changing upcoming matches, newsletters, or administrative tasks.

I researched possible solutions and proposed the use of the Dutch Sportlink database; this enables the club to manage all data in one central place. Now, match results and team pages are updated in real-time on the website, and each team has their own team page. Another big challenge was to inform and instruct people within the sports club on how they can update data in this new system. I wrote short guides, and we held a few meetings to instruct people. The overall adoption of the new system went very smoothly.

Side project

One of my side projects is called TownSiege. TownSiege was a web-based medieval strategy and social game where players build their city and explore the world. After small market research and conducting surveys, I designed and developed the game. I launched a Beta version which was played by almost 1,000 people, and I learned a lot about game design, programming, Unity3D, server maintenance, and database design. I participated in the community forums a lot and updated the game according to feedback from the players. Unfortunately, I became too much of a perfectionist in this project, and TownSiege was never officially launched. I paused the project, but one of my dreams is to work on the development of the game again. Feel free to subscribe.
