Hello, my name is Dennis Flinsenberg. I’m a 30 year old UI designer currently residing in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
I started building my own websites in the early 2000s using Microsoft FrontPage (heh) and Photoshop. After creating some websites, I kind of lost interest in webdesign and started exploring other realms of design. For a while I really got into 3D modeling and also motion graphics. I used Maxon’s Cinema4D for the 3D stuff and Adobe After Effects for motion graphics.
In february of 2006 I enrolled in the HAN University of Applied Sciences, to study Communication and Multimedia Design (CMD). Here is where is managed to combine my love for (web)design, 3D and animation. I followed courses on all three subjects. In my first internship during CMD I was a 3D modeler at a local company. My main focus was creating the Valkhofpark and its buildings (current and historic), but I also worked on tons of other projects, creating various models and animations.
My graduation internship was at MediaMonks. Here I focused on motion graphics, by combining After Effects and Cinema4D to do so. I worked on tons of cool stuff for clients like TomTom, McDonald’s, House of Anubis and Postcode Loterij.
After getting my degree in ICT, I started working as UI designer at LinkU Internet Media in February of 2010. I worked there for 5 years, focusing on UI design, and abit of animation on the side. Having an animation background really helped me in creating next level websites. In April of 2015 I moved to another company, Iquality Business Solutions. Here I focus on UX and UI design.
I strive to create the most beautiful AND most usable user interfaces within the set parameters of a project. I’m always open to take on projects. If you’d like to get in contact with me, you can use the contact form or shoot me a message on Twitter.
On April 1st (no, this is not a joke) I started working at Iquality Business Solutions in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. My main focus is UX and UI design.
