I AM VERA
Welcome to my website.
Hi! You are on the website of a twenty-one year old industrial design student. I am now in the third year of my bachelor, studying at the University of Twente.
As a young child I already started creating things, early I knew: I want to become a designer! Later I realized I also wanted to learn how things are working, so Industrial Design was a right fit for me.
On this website you can find a part of the work I have done, enjoy the view! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU
Here you can see some of the projects, marker sketches and digital sketches I have done.
House in solidworks
In a team of two we build a house in Solidworks to learn about 3D modeling in context and about component patterns. It is a scalable model of a house. If the ground floor becomes bigger, everything changes to it (even the locations of the furniture change correctly).
Curabitur vestibulum aliquam leo. Phasellus viverra nulla ut metus varius laoreet. Maecenas ullamcorper, dui et placerat feugiat, eros pede varius nisi, condimentum viverra felis nunc et lorem. Phasellus ullamcorper ipsum rutrum nunc. Ut tincidunt tincidunt erat.
Curabitur at lacus ac velit ornare lobortis.. In ut quam vitae odio lacinia tincidunt. Praesent ac massa at ligula laoreet iaculis. Phasellus ullamcorper ipsum rutrum nunc.
Project for IKEA
For IKEA, a useful, working wet and dry section for the shower is developed for small areas. An interdisciplinary project with other students, including mechanical engineers. We worked as a team on a design that not only usable, but also manufacturable, safe and technically responsible is. The project was a success, unfortunately I can not share any more details.
The main goal of this project was to transform a ‘vague’ concept into a feasible product. So, the mechanism, producibility, usability and budgeting were also involved. By pushing on the squeezer on the top, the squeezer will turn. The juice will flow via the spout into the glass. With one gesture of the hand you have directly a glass full of juice! Our project has been a success, we won the jury prize and the audience prize. Also, this product has been realized out of steel, to test the mechanism.
Here are a couple of drawings I made by hand with markers on paper.

These digital drawings I have made with Sketchbook Pro and Adobe Illustrator.
