Dirk van de Mortel

cognitive designer

User experience is a combination of many areas of expertise, that’s what makes it interesting (and diffuse). Most importantly, we make (and keep) the user happy, by using an user-centered design approach. I am active in that whole scope, that’s why I am a cognitive designer.
