I am David de Groot

I love being creative, working with people and guiding a project towards completion.

As a second year Industrial Design student at the University of Twente, the environment I'm working in is constantly adapting; projects are tackled not only in huge interdisciplinary teams, but also individually. Furthermore, strong deadlines and deliverables help me to adapt to stressful situations. This also reflects itself in my current occupation as a freelance graphic designer, where communication with the client, respecting deadlines and good resuls are key for a successful career.

All of this has helped me to become a focussed and disciplined individual, with a strong connection to the client and a good eye for human-centred design and design thinking.

I love reading about science and design, but in my spare time I also enjoy listening to music and doing photography.
