Internship van Berlo
In my 3.1 I choose for an internship. I found it very important as a student to get experience in the “real” design life. I choose to do my internship at van Berlo bv. Here I was able to get the experience in practice and work on my design skills as well.
During this internship I worked on several projects like a soap dispenser, coffee machine a special laptop briefcase and an interactive lamp (can not show any pictures due to an IP contract). Although working on such ‘low tech’ project it was a very good experience: make digital drawings (above), worked in a professional team, implemented my skills in practice. But another important conclusion is that I would like to innovate more than was possible within this company. I would like to explore the possibilities of new interactions, electronics and material within existing fields of design.
