Retrouvailles Design was a small startup based in Aalborg, providing consultancy in Service Design and Webdesign.

Founder

When I moved to Denmark for my Master’s degree, I quit my job at Uw Computerstudent and felt compelled to keep challenging myself and continue to develop professionally.

Under the flag of Retrouvailles Design, a small firm I started, I freelanced as consultant/designer, mainly for Dutch small businesses.

Retrouvailles stands for the amazing feeling you get when you reconnect with old friends. Properly designed services can give you the same experience, a feeling like it’s exactly where you belong – and you go a long way back.

Service Designer

What started as an internship late 2015, resulted in a challenging and exciting long-term employment. At 86 billion, I develop the services they provide; from the overall customer experience, to exact content and models, from presentations to webdesign.

This in close collaboration with their diverse team of experts on -amongst others- design and storytelling.
