Yes, the actual Stranger Things NETFLIX™ from the USA! They asked a small e-learning firm from the Netherlands to design a learning platform for their employees. Together with a colleague I drew the whole flow of the platform on paper. After that I used Adobe Xd to make a wireframe simulation of the interaction. Then they said: 'thank you very much', and after that we never heard from them again, but we did get a lot of ideas we could use in our own platform. Below you see a screengrab of the wireframe in Xd. You can see the whole wireframe here.
For the lack of a better word. A module can be very different things, and I have created many different ones. It all starts with what the participant needs to know or has to be able to do after finishing the course. The products I created all try to reach this goal while being interactive, entertaining, challenging, thought-provoking and easy to use. Some examples of modules I made for clients below.
I made this e-learning about the Sustainable Development Goals for PwC employees. I created interactive graphs to make the content more engaging. PwC decided to make a version available for their clients as well.
What would happen if a large LPG-tank explodes near a large factory? And what would emergency responders have to do? I created a scenario in which participants have to answer this while the clock is ticking.
The ANWB wanted to train their employees how to use Android devices. I am an iOS user so first I had to learn this myself as well. I created a series of short trainings which covered many basic functions this mobile OS.
Scripts, storyboards and design. I created a lot of animations for several clients. I start by writing and drawing, so text and image are created simultaneously, and reinforce one another. Then I make a detailed storyboard in PowerPoint which I can give to an animator who does the actual animating.
Railway personell needs to learn a lot. An animation is a fast way to bring them up to speed about important subjects. I wrote scripts and drew storyboards for many explanimations.
We found a suitable visual metaphor for the complex process of a pension fund. It involves a large tank and money from working people flowing in while pensions are flowing out.
Whiteboard animations are a cheap way to make an interesting video. This is an example I made for management support employees to prepare them for changes in their daily work.
Learning can be fun. You can use game elements (gamification) or build entire games to achieve a learning effect. I have designed both online and offline games.
This board game can be played by Achmea employees who are not experts in insurance. While playing they learn about risk profiles and financial consequences of choices an insurance company makes.
The people responsible for the information for train travellers have to be trained to recognise various situations. In this game the can easily see what is happening on a model train track with small stations.
For NN investment partners I worked on an investment game which can be played with a live audience on iPads. Another project was a mobile app with a short game to introduce investing to (potential) clients.
Not strictly a part of my job desription but still a fulfilling activity. The inBrain logo was redesigned by me, but I have made many more logos. Friends and family often ask me to design something for them. Find a small selection below.
