I stand for inclusive design; every user should have a great experience. No one should be left out. Period.
My name is Bert de Weerd. I am a user experience designer. I design the experience a person will have when interacting with a product. That can be anything, from a light switch to high-tech simulation software or the controller of an industrial robot. Each user should have a great experience. To achieve that, I use all kinds of technology. I connect opportunities with possibilities to solve problems. I can help you with that.
Currently I work for Alten Nederland as a senior user experience consultant. While being a consultant I help my clients with validated designs for their projects but also with strategic advice on how to incorporate UX in their agile product development processes. I'm a coach to my UX colleagues at Alten, I help them helping our client.
At Alten we needed a way to express the maturity of competences and ambitions form our UX-consultants. After a lot of discussion and creative work, we came up with this competency wheel that we use to match candidates to projects and to measure competency deviation of teams. You can create yours on the alten.nl website. This is my profile:
In the past years I've worked at a wide verity of companies. At every company I worked for/at many clients on several projects. I learned that I like to be operating in multiple contexts simultaneously, that's why consultancy fits me well.
