My name is Charlotte. Through this website I would like to introduce you to my work and vision.
In 2015 I graduated as an Industrial Designer at the Technical University Eindhoven. I learned to work hard to realise my ideas and concepts. I enjoy designing but I want to do more than creating material (and interactive) experiences. I want people to think, to research, reflect and to start a conversation or discussion. I want to design for debate. Some of my design projects can be found here.
I dream of using my talents to organise meetings of people, of objects and of futures. At the Master Art, Culture and Heritage Management at the Maastricht University I learned more about creative and cultural project management. I got involved with the museum world and cultural education.
I was invited to work together with the Making Culture Lab (MCL), a research group at the Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. I learned a lot on interdisciplinary teamwork when I helped the lab by designing and building an exhibition (physical) from a virtual exhibition.
From my internship experience at the MCL I realised that there was a need for new perspectives on heritage and (museum) presentation. This is emphasised in my master thesis by highlighting the position of Indigenous heritage but mostly through the developments in the dynamics of physical and digital experiences. I want to continue to combine the physical and digital and to build better heritage/museum/cultural experiences.
I am always interested in new projects or feedback on my current work. Please feel free to leave a message here or on my blog. If you want to know more about my skills first ? Check out my cv here.
More about me
Another creative activity I love is cooking (and eating too much together with friends). I also like to explore all kinds of "nerd" activities such as (board)games, cartoons, anime and Chiptune music. Sundays are for Japanese tea ceremony lessons (Chado). I find Zen rituals very relaxing and inspirational.
On the overall I like to know a bit about everything.
So keep me posted!
