Collaborating with communities
During my graduation I researched what type of service neighbourhoods (or already up and running renewable energy cooperatives) will need to form a 'local energy community'. In this context a Local energy community is a group of households that share and sell renewable energy to each other and the energy grid. The final result was co-designed with existing and prospecting Local Energy Community members. The final design is a service that assists LECs in their path to form an energy community, mainly by sharing knowledge and providing smart tools that enable communities to collaborate easily with Stedin. This service is called the LES explorer service.

Creating a service Strategy for FLEET
My team and I developed a service strategy for a new autonomous baggage transportation vehicle. This transport cart called FLEET is made by Vanderlande. The client asked us for a full roadmap with possible applications for FLEET. We then took one of the most promising parts of this overall strategic roadmap and made a prototype roadmap. Showing the client how to start working on our envisioned future of luggage handling today.

Founding a foundation for Art and Music
Living in Delft and having a shared interest with friends in art and electronic music we got inspired to start organising our own festivals combining art and music. So we started our own foundation called 'Stichting Mono Collectief'. Mainly because we found the offering in our hometown lacking with a proper cultural 'edge'. After almost 4 years, 2 parties and 2 festivals later we are still going strong. The (cultural) festival we organise is called 'Dorpsgek'.

Designing for the Youth for Climate community
Three conceptual designs on three different topics. All with the same assignment: designing Civic media for a community in the Netherlands. I chose the 'Youth for Climate community' because of the political and controversial nature of these schoolstrikers. And also because they have less of a political voice since they can not vote yet. Designing for change and daring to speak out!

Designing for safety on 'Woonerven'
During my bachelor final project I got the assignment to improve the safety of streets by design. I strategically chose the 'woonerf' as a context. My design goal was changing the role of the street from traffic lane to playground and vica versa. The final design was a neighborhood controlled road block and plant pot called 'de buitenbak'
