Hi there!

My name is Marieke Hepkema, and I'm a 23-year old UX designer and illustrator, based in Amsterdam. I love turning intricate problems into beautiful, clear, user-centered designs.

I believe that digital interactive products can function as a tool to better people's lives, if designed ethically and with the needs of the end user in mind. Making a positive impact, even if that just means making a mundane product more joyful to use, is something that motivates me a lot.

I've had a passion for drawing for as long as I can remember, and that passion turned into a love for digital design and illustration. What started with designing levels for Mario Kart as a kid, turned into studying CMD as a young adult!

I have basic HTML & CSS skills, which is very useful in multidisciplinary settings (and for creating portfolios!).

I completed my (Cum Laude) Bachelor's Degree in Communication and Multimedia Design in February of 2022. My graduation project was graded with a 9/10.
