About me

My name is James van Arkel. I am a User Experience Designer from Amsterdam, with a eye for the target group. I fineshed school and studied Communication and Multimedia Design at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam short HVA. For those of you who are wondering why my portfolio is in English and the url is .NL. I am half American. I want to show my designs internationally. I am very passionate about my work. In this line of work you have to stand-out in one way or another because everybody is a designer somehow now-a-days. Thats why I try to put a little bit of me into every design I make.

I specialize in

Concept design

Creativity is not purely based on colours and shapes it's also in words and concepts.

Graphic Design

From paper to pixel. Graphic design to the max. Web, identities interfaces making it stand-out from the crowd.

Front-end development

Give the design and User Interface the boost that it needs with HTML and CSS. Make it come alive and speak your message.

UI & UX Design

Make the brand and product work for the user not the other way around. With graphics and interaction design that fits the users needs. Let's do it!
