About me

I am Demi Jansen, a master student Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technnology. I just returned from a research internship at RISE in Sweden, where I conducted design research on how open-ended play contributes to the physical literacy of children. Currently, I am starting my second master degree in Applied Cognitive Psychology. Next to this, I am currently open for a part-time postion as product/ux/service designer. July I will be back in the Netherlands and open for a new position.

I am interested in designing within the complexity of societal transformation. During my master I am exploring the area of Service Design. I adapt well to new challenges, where I stay down-to-earth to be comfortable with the ambiguity of complex issues. I strongly believe in the power of making to get ideas experiencable which is reflected in my design process.

My vision on design

The world is constantly undergoing change. Societal transformation brings complex challenges that are often not easily realized. Designers can make a crucial contribution by creating ways to support people in this change.

I want to motivate and empower people to take part in creating solutions. I believe design can be used as a medium to change the way society perceives the world around us.
By creating tools and experiences that aim for awareness and understanding of challenges we face, I hope to trigger an intrinsic motivation to create a positive shift.

I’m very aware of how everyone’s unique talents and perspectives positively influence a process. Therefore I highly value working in complementary teams.
I am able to handle multiple tasks, but I can also narrow down and deeply focus on one task. My persistence together with curiosity leads me to have a constant hunger to explore what’s out there.
