Taking a short break and showing the Skype project

The projects are over, the parties are done and I am back in the Netherlands.

After this year I can confidentially say that the best decision I have ever made was to start studying at Umeå, Institute of Design (UID) in Sweden. UID is a very special place. Not just because of the awesome projects or the kick-ass collaborations but because of the people that make up the culture. Especially during the last days, when everyone is celebrating the end of the year, I realized how great the people are.

To me personally, this was a crazy year full of highlights. I traveled 17,324.59 kilometers to Sydney to present half an hour at a conference. I was part of an awesome team that designed Ilvy a Prenatal Bonding device in less than ten days. Not to forget my leisure Easter trip to Lofoton, Norway.

Another highlight has been the nice response on my blog. I started blogging in November and I have written a total of 24 blogposts since then. I will definitely continue it however, I will probably not manage to blog weekly.

Last year was amazing but the future might be even better. In September, I will be starting a half a year internship at IDEO in San Francisco. Everyone has been telling me that IDEO is such a great place, I am super excited to see it myself. I am sure it will be a great learning experience.

So now it is time for a short break. Time to recharge. Time to do whatever and whenever I feel like it. I will be back soon!

Nevertheless I will continue to update my portfolio. Soon I will be publishing the results of the project with Skype which is currently under a non disclosure agreement. This is my favorite project so far, so I am really excited to share it! Here is a little process video I made, which I can share already.
