About


Jeffrey, who studied mechanical engineering and product design, combines these two fields of expertise in his practice: he calls himself a re-engineer and a futurist.

He designs innovative and future-proof scenarios in which processes, human beings and environment are central. By dissecting systems and design processes, he gains important knowledge about how something is engineered. This allows him, together with other experts in his network, to redesign a product or system and redefine how an organisation works.

Alongside the creative process, Jeffrey has a strong ability to project manage the entire design process. This can either be an additional service to the concept development stage or part of an independent ongoing project.

The outcome is a new vision for your company. A visual end result that communicates a strong, new future-proof standard - validated by experts in Jeffrey's own network - that will have a positive impact on the user and/or environment.

Making what seems impossible, possible.
