Who am i?

My name is Sem Spiekman, a 25-year-old designer who studies at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. In the last few years, I have been busy designing digital media. In 2016, I started at The Nova College  Haarlem, where I followed the study Digital design. There I learned a lot about designing websites, apps, working with images, and other digital media.


In 2019, I graduated from The Nova College. At the moment, I am studying Communication Multimedia Design at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, currently in the fourth year. I already have some experience in the field. In 2019, I did an internship at Avidly in Finland for 6 months. Avidly is a large design and marketing company in Scandinavia. I lived in Liverpool for 1 month to work on a project. In 2021, I successfully did a 3-month internship at Clutch in Amsterdam. And in 2023, I chose to live in Madrid for 6 months to do my internship at Propelland.


My focus and passion are interaction (ux/ui) and behavioral design, and I would like to develop my skills in the upcoming years.
