I’m Giel Cobben, a designer based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I create interfaces, shape brands and build digital products.

Over the last ten odd years I’ve had the pleasure of working with some great people, working side by side to design and develop apps and improve upon existing products. I mainly focus on designing clear, understandable interfaces and creating a goal oriented user experience through iteration and prototyping. I just love collaborating with passionate people and companies to make great apps.

Open source software

Because Open Source plays a major part in how we build our products, we see it as a matter of course to give the same effort back to our community by creating valuable, free and easy-to-use software.
