Hi there! I'm Jasper van Eck, a 22-year old designer/student. I am currently still pursuing my Master's Degree "Strategic Product Design" at the Delft University of Technology. I've also completed my Bachelor's degree "Industrial Design Engineering" at the same university.
I live in the Netherlands, Breda to be precise, however I love to travel around the world. This hobby goes hand in hand with my interest in photography. I take my trusty Nikon D7000 with my 18-105 mm standard lens everywhere I go on vacation. I also make some nice extra money from taking pictures.
I've lived in Australia for half a year and I loved it. I went there on an exchange programme to the University of Technology Sydney. Most of the courses I've completed over there had to do with finance. I was very interested in Finance since both my brother and father work in the banking world, and sitting around a table at dinner without understanding a word they were talking about made me curious. I still like finance, however I believe my future lies in the design related IT work.
Which brings me to some of my other hobbies. I am a sucker for graphic design, as you might have seen on the website. And if you didn't, feel free to have a look around. This interest in Graphic design has made me a daily user of a lot of Adobe Creative Cloud programmes (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Edge Animate, Muse, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, After Effects). I also like gadgets and anything tech related. I try to stay updated by watching a lot of youtube movies, reading a lot of news articles and listening to podcasts.
The IT side is something which has interested me from the start of my student career. This is reflected by the fact that I've chosen elective courses which are focussed around developing. This interest in IT resulted in the understanding of different programming languages: Java, PHP, HTML, CSS, MySQL.
My ambitions are to work for a company like Facebook, Google, Apple, Microsoft or any other giant IT related company.
