A freelance product designer, currently living in Amsterdam, creating meaningful interfaces with code to create production like prototypes

About me

I am Jaap Niks, a designer that loves to create interfaces and experiences. In the past 6 years that I have been active in this field I have tried to sure my work benefit both users and companies. These years have been filled with working for companies like Dirk van den Broek, Peugeot, Citroën, and Mollie amongst others. My free time is often spent on sailing, reading, and running.

Currently, I work as a freelance product designer, but I am open to the opportunity of a fulltime job. Preferably, at a company or agency that supports companies in creating digital products. Feel free to reach out to me by email if your company would be a good fit or if you know a company that would.
