Michel is one of the most structured, self-organizing, and methodical designers I've had the pleasure to work with. Being this early in his career, he already possesses a great amount of reflection, knows how to connect the dots and covers the whole range of hard skills of a product designer.
Senior Product Designer @WeTransfer
Michel is a thoughtful designer and inquisitive, self-driven researcher. I can recommend him to anyone looking for help in analyzing a complex problem, identifying key opportunities, creating, testing and iterating on possible design solutions.
Head of Product @WeTransfer
Michel doesn’t only make things pretty, he's also not afraid to challenge ideas and explore alternative directions. Besides that he's fast, precise and just a really nice guy to work with. Hire him before I do.
Author @GRIP and co-founder @Rise
Michel is eager to learn and not afraid of new challenges. He takes on various roles within teams, helps where necessary and doesn’t see problems but opportunities. Michel isn't afraid to ask tough questions and doesn't make assumptions.
UX Lead @ANWB
Michel is eager to learn and a talented designer. His realisation of overcoming ego and being part of the team at Awkward during his internship was one of his achievements that really showed how much he progressed.

We asked Michel to design a beautiful website for our company to tell our story online. Michel really immersed himself in our company to get to know us and design our brand based on this knowledge, using a lot of beautiful imagery and text.
