OnModus is pleased to announce the addition of some fresh creative input to our team: Yannick Hoogervorst! In his final year as an Interaction Design student, Yannick will join us to do a very specific task. But before we get into that, please allow Yannick to introduce himself:
‘So, my name is Yannick Hoogervorst and I am 22 years old. I’ve been studying the ins and outs of UX design at the HAN University of Applied Sciences for four years now. I also picked up an interest in graphic design, and I travelled to the United States to do my graphic design minor at Minnesota State University, Mankato. During my studies in Mankato, I also worked as a designer at an on-campus organisation called B507. This is where I gained a lot of design experience working on promotional materials and internal projects. Working abroad really broadened my view of the digital industry and got me excited for the possibilities in my future.’
‘OnModus felt like the kind of company that could balance me and keep me motivated. During my first interview, I had the chance to meet the entire team. That quickly gave me a good overview of how the company connected and communicated with each other. I thought to myself: What a creative and motivated bunch of individuals! It’s the kind of company in which my thoughts and opinions would matter most in terms of improving professionally and constantly growing.’
As a last-year student, Yannick will have to perform a final graduation assignment with OnModus. This assignment will act as a validation of Yannick’s skills in the professional world. So we asked him how he could most effectively use those skills at a company like OnModus. Here’s what he said:
‘First of all, I would like to support OnModus in any way I can. That includes offering my UX knowledge to further deepen the customer experience the company offers and help OnModus with any design work that is needed. The primary focus of my internship will be a combination of these two, as I will be focusing on OnModus’ digital platforms and exploring how I could improve these to create more value for our clients. This involves setting up the customer journey of the current OnModus website, sketching and designing alternative options, eventually prototyping and testing these to get to the perfect solution. All in all, a lot of possibilities and excitement in my future.’
Please join us in welcoming Yannick to the team. And be sure to stop by and say hello the next time you’re in the OnModus office!
