WELCOME!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
THOM VAN BOHEEMEN – FREELANCE DESIGNER

 

I have always been passionate about understanding how people think and how their actions can be influenced through design. With a diverse background in UX, persuasion, product and installation design I have been focussed on creating designs that are not just a pleasure to use, but fulfil a purpose. Persuasion design is a powerful tool in the e-commerce to help increase conversion, while its techniques can also be used in product and interface design to stimulate certain behaviours while discouraging others.

Educated as both a designer and an engineer I understand that even the smallest details are important for creating a well functioning design.

I have selected a few projects for you in my portfolio so take a look and if you want to know anything else about me or have an interesting project, don’t hesitate to contact me!

 

 

 

About Me

I have always been fascinated with movies, how a movie is able to create such an immersive experience and let you go through a rollercoaster of emotions. Part of the answer is the story and the acting, but more fascinating to me is how a scene is set.

The image that is laid out by the cinematographer, the cuts made by the editor and how the director brings everything together.

This is what fascinates me in design. How plenty of small but important details together can influence the user. How it can make them feel, how it can influence their actions and even change their behaviour.

My education has been in Industrial Design at the Technical University in Eindhoven.
I am more a Designer/Engineer then a Designer/Artist. Designing is a lot of problem solving and I often to get my inspiration from data, by analysing, abstracting and a lot of testing to come to a creative and elegant solution. It is important for me to have a reason behind my decision making, and the data to back it up.

As a designer I specialise in UX design, understanding the users needs and how to design for them.
I have worked on a great variety of projects and developed different skills for each of them. The common theme throughout these projects is always user centered design.
