Dutch User Experience Designer and Visual Designer
Niels Kijf is a Dutch interactive media entrepreneur born in Leiden (The Netherlands). He has a master degree in Digital Media Design, HKU (collaboration with University of Portsmouth, UK) and lives in Amsterdam.
He co-owned, and was creative director for the interactive media studio Sense Studios for 9 years. The ambition for something new resulted in the logical step towards being a freelance entrepreneur as Digital innovator, User Experience Designer & Visual Designer at the end of 2011. After a period of almost three years, working for Sid Lee, Loveurope, Koen and Sanoma digital it’s time for the next step. This winter (2014) he is setting up his Concept thinking shop in Ibiza, feel free to contact him.
He has pure passion developing and creating engaging and uncluttered Concepts / User Experience Designs and has uncommon ability to Visual Design these ideas as well.
Internet asks way to much repetitive input from it's users, it does not support us in our task completion. The effort / result balance -in my opinion- is lacking enormously. Think about your last holiday search for example, how much time did you spend before you booked?
Google Now, Siri, Cortana will be -to some extend- be the answer, but I believe interfacing with the internet needs a new generation of interaction.
We need a new visual UI principle, especially on mobile / wearables which brings the content of our communication and all our favorites apps in a streamlined contextual fashion in seam with our daily lives. Not only consuming passive information, but also interaction with systems and people. Preferably a solution which will reduce the staring at screens throughout the day.
