Who is Jeffrey?

Jeffrey was born in the heart of Aalsmeer on 24 May 1996. Now, 23 years later, every working day he gets into the car at half past eight, en route to the NDSM. Jeffrey enjoys sports and therefore does this three times a week, one of which is tennis. He also likes to make music. He can play the guitar and has bought a piano in the beginning of this year, on which he practices daily.

How did you become a visual designer?

"I have always known that I wanted to work in the creative sector. My father is a Graphic Designer and does DTP work, so that is where my interests for that were born."

"After completing HAVO I started the HBO study Communication & Multimedia Design at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. I completed both my graduation internship and -project here at Unc Inc. I knew that I didn't want to follow a master course and that I wanted to start working in the field right after I graduated. And since I really enjoyed it here, it was a logical step to start working full-time right away. "

Where do you get your inspiration from?

"For passive inspiration I follow a few newsletters; those from Medium, InVision (Inside Design) and Webdesigner Depot. If I actively seek inspiration, I use Pinterest, Dribbble, Instagram, Behance, YouTube, Awwwards, Flaticon, Color Hunt, Muzli and more."

"I also find great value in the input from my colleagues. I believe that with the feedback from others, your work will be much better than what you initially could come up with on your own."

What are you most proud of?

"When I look at all the work I made for Unc Inc, I am certainly most proud of the animated explanation video for Hoodhunt. Not only because this was my first big animation job, but also because I enjoy making animations the most."

"It was a four-week project in which I did most of it on my own from start to finish. This included the script, the storyboard, the illustrations and animating those."

Which personal trait sometimes gets in your way?

"I am very perfectionistic and organized minded, which means that I always want to do everything as perfectly as possible. However, this has often lead to me running out of time. Nowadays I'm able to estimate my time better and I also know that sometimes it is necessary to make things less perfect in order to produce quickly ."

How would you describe Unc Inc in one sentence?

"A close-knit, creative and informal team that makes great products with an eye to the future."

To whom do you pass the baton and what would you like to ask him/her?

"I pass on the baton to Roel, and I would like to ask him what his most memorable vacation was, and why."
