Hello, I'm Jabe.
A freelance UX/UI designer & product owner.

I love spending my days on managing products & projects related to smart technology and bridging the gap between the digital and physical world. 

Some of the amazing company's I’ve Worked for


From idea to product launch and success.

I’m experienced in following the complete product lifecycle of products or services. Translating company vision, user value, and technological innovations into concepts, aiding the design process, and guiding the product launch. 

Product management

I strive to create a vision and business plans that are achievable and provide support at a strategic and operational level to realize these plans. As the translator between the technical team, the commercial side and the user, I support your company in making the right choices to successfully launch product or service.


Design strategy

I perform research and analyse the business needs of the customer and the company goals and merge those into a design strategy with clear design guidelines. This helps decision making and prioritizing design chooses during the development and optimization of a product or service. 


UX/UI Design

From design strategy towards pixel perfect interfaces that optimize your conversion rate. Next to being a product owner I love to dive into the details of user flows, wireframes and visual design. Mostly working in FIGMA and following an atomic design approach.

About Me

I love simplicity, products and services that are crystal clear, do what they are intended for and put a smile on a users' face.

I’m a UI/UX designer & product owner with a background in Human-Technology and Interaction Design. In the last decade I have been working on different projects for several international companies like Auping, Philips, ASM, Thule and Lely. Giving me an experienced view on the complete product design lifecycle. I mostly specialize in the early stages of the product development process, though also experienced in product and UI/UX design and familiar with the latest tools.  

Key achievements


Donald Merks

Senior Innovation Strategist @ VanBerlo

"In my period as interim projectmanager for an innovation project at Auping I had the pleasure of having Jabe in my team. Outside of being very nice to work with, he is a solid team-member who was always willing to go the extra mile. I've gotten to know Jabe as an extremely hard worker with excellent project management and design skills. His interaction design skills really helped to take the project to the next level."
