Hello, I’m Cindy, a UX/UI designer and illustrator from Amsterdam, living in Zurich. My motto: Encourage curiosity with great design.


Studied Visual Arts and Design in Groningen (NL). Subsequently worked for various well-known design agencies in Amsterdam. As a freelance designer and illustrator she continued to work on different assignments and taught at Mediacollege Amsterdam. Until the love for mountaineering led her to Switzerland.

In Zurich she deepened her knowledge in the area of user interface and user experience design. She worked on a wide variety of projects from book design to Swiss television. She was the design lead in an industrial startup with machine learning services. Until starting at Tamedia in July 2023, Cindy worked on user-centered design at Zeix.

In addition to mountaineering, she enjoys drawing comics and is a passionate speed skater.

Design used to be fairly straightforward, but the field keeps growing as do new technologies. As eco systems grow, so does the complexity. The basics though are still the same: to combine elements into something new, like alchemy. It’s fun to be a design alchemist, with all new possibilities and explorations.
