Hello I am
Louis Okken,

A UI/UX Designer and webdesigner. With the focus on problem solving, user friendly interfaces to optimize the user experience, frequent communication and thorough testing with the users. Currently living in Amsterdam, available for freelance or a new UI/UX focused challenge.

Ever since I started as a technical designer in the mechanical engineering branch, I knew that my interest lay with the creation of a product that would be used by the people. As long as I can remember I had great interest in the upcoming digitization. Therefor it didn’t took me long to specialize myself as a user interface/experience designer.

Knowing that I wanted to be a UI/UX designer I keep extending my knowledge and gained experience as a webdesigner. Besides my experience with the coding languages HTML, CSS and Javascript I also worked extensively with the CMS system WordPress. From the first call to a potential client, the meetings on location, the financial part until the completion of the website and reaching the deadline. Every step of every project that I have makes me want to go that extra mile for the client.

Recently graduated as a User Experience and Visual Designer at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Communication & Multimedia Design.

Interested or just curious? I would be happy to get in contact with you.
