About Me

Hi there, I’m Martijn

I wear hats, not ties. I open doors for ladies, bully around pixels. Enjoy exercise and training, but have a devout relationship with my couch. I live to design and my job is awesome, that’s it… no flip-side to it… to design is to create, to create is to be god like, can’t seriously complain.

I have become rather enveloped in the social media wave as well as the explosive tech industry that has come about in the last few years, most of my tech thoughts are published on memeburn.

Also as a side note, a Designer, Photoshop junkie, stalker of internet trends, utterly addicted to Google.

Have Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design specialising in Advertising. Now I know that’s practically saying I am good at making pretty pictures that lie to you, but I swear I’m one of the good guys… honest… no really… stop looking at me like that…

I have accumulated experience in both print and web media over the years working with and pitching to a wide range of clients from CocaCola and FNB to local fashion designers and Chamber Orchestra of Johannesburg.

My passion is great user experience design, known more commonly as UX, from both the psychological as well as aesthetic approach to interfaces taking in contexts of format from desktop to mobile or even TV to watches as well as the demographics of the target user to make the most optimal experience for the user which in turn converts to more investment be it monetary or time.

If you want to chat, I can easily be bribed with a cappuccino :-)
