So, my name is Jan Teunissen, a Rotterdam based designer. I focus my work on creating meaningful multimedia products. These products should streamline a journey or provoke a shift of behaviour or mindset.

Since I started my Bachelor Communication & Multimedia Design my passion for Digital and Interactive Design grew. During the programme I tried to take every chance to accept new challenges. I worked as an allround designer at Designstudio Booreiland during my first internship. I was a part of an international, multidisciplinary team with whom I worked on several projects. Working directly for international cliënts like Fairphone and Inrev on cross media projects got me really excited.

At the end of 2015 I got the chance to participate in a exchange project with the Donghua University in Shanghai to work on a design challenge commisioned by Philips Healthcare. It was a wonderful and eye-opening experience to collaborate with students from this completely different culture.

Another exciting project was the minor Interface and User Experience Design. Together with my team I created Coach. Coach is an app for people with asthma that gives a personal advice for the best time to go for a run. This project symbolized the ideal process for me. By thorough research and ideation we got a strong concept for a very complicated design challenge.
With this project we made it to the SideR (Student Interaction Design and Research) conference 2016 and to the finale of SpinAwards category Young Talent.

I graduated with a project for Voordekunst focussing on stimulating makers to create more engagement with their followers. During this seven months long individuel project I learned to organize and design my own design process.

When I’m not designing I proceed my continuous quest to find funky tunes for my spotify playlist (all recommendations are welcome!). Or I am riding my fixed gear bike throught the city and take snapshot of the urban life.
