Hi, I am Jori van der Kolk. I am a passionate young designer who likes to explore the worlds of design and technology. I explore new ways of making by buidling and addapting digital fabrication machines to see what other things they can do. For the past four years, I have been actively involved with 3D printing through various roles. I have an active mindset, and I like to take on new challenges.
I have an explorative way of working in which I combine making, reflecting and research. By making and trying out different options I navigate my way through complicated design spaces. I am competent in physical, electronics, and digital prototyping and am able to combine these three elements in my work. When my knowledge lacks, I talk to experts and do a deep dive into the matter to bring my knowledge up to the required level.
In other words, the best marketing decision you can make is to have a product or business that fulfills a real and compelling need for a real and defined group of people — no matter how much tweaking and refining this takes.(c)
