Dutch User Interface and Information Designer

· Available for projects ·

Information and messages can be designed and packaged in many forms. Analyzing, structuring and designing information are my key strengths. I help people, organisations and companies communicate their stories more effectively with the help of various products.

My workfield stretches out to both web and print. I design clean interfaces for the web and make sure the user experience plays a key role during this process. As an information designer I focus on designing processes, stories, research-reports and annual reports.

I run my own design studio called Brandstof. gordonjakob.me is my personal website and outlet. I'm on dribbble. You can reach me at hi@gordonjakob.me or on twitter.

Recent work




Eet.nu is the largest online restaurant guide in the Netherlands. A lot of the content is user-generated therefore most of the design decisions are based on this variable content. For a period of about a year I worked together with the eet.nu team on the redesign of their website. - visit project
