about
me jimmy

Hey you! This is me, Jimmy. I’m a Student Communication & Multimedia Design at The Hague University and my core values are quality and variety, with everything I do.

I love to go on hikes, visit techno festivals, make music and I take my camera everywhere I go. This all besides creating beautiful online experiences like websites, apps and other minimalistic designs.

I'm always full of ideas and I love to think things out. I constantly jump from one idea to the other and if I hear a new good idea, I'll think of something to complete that idea. I like to think in my own way if it comes to problem solving.

I like it when everything's right. I can spot mistakes and errors quickly where others don't. I dislike mistakes and problems, including the ones that happen to myself. I see it where there's room for improvement and I'll make sure it happens too.

I like to have conversations that are really about something. Somehow I take care of the fact that people feel safe with me quickly. I'm a good listener and other people tell me their stories & secrets quickly. I like to talk about feelings with other people.

Life for me is a party and the glass is always half full. I easily see the positivity in the things that happen around me. That also turns out to be infectious for others. I see solutions everywhere. Even if everything seems to go wrong, I see the good things that we still can work with.

I'm good at listening to people: what they say helps me to understand it better. New information takes time to process in my head. When the puzzel's ready, I can say something about it. I like to think things through before I say something and it helps me if other people ask me questions.

I'm not inconvenienced by time. I enjoy moments in time as they happen and I do what joins my path or what's necessary to do at that particular moment. I enjoy doing multiple things on a day and to organise days to my ideal situation. I get energised from unexpected things.

I like new things and I'm always aware of new trends and developments around me. If something new fascinates me, I'm able to learn a lot about it. If the novelty is gone, my energy level lowers and then it's time for something new.

Sometimes, I spend hours making something (more) beautiful without even noticing it's already half 2 in the night. I put effort in creating the best online designs and I won't stop until i'm satisfied. I can also enjoy the beauty of nature where i'll totally unwind (see occasional savour). Finally, I like to make everyday things look better.

core values

helping out others
I like to learn and I like to teach. I like to teach what I learn. I love helping others out with their jobs and tasks, especially if I know a lot about the particular subject. I can read people quite good and I know how to react around them.
variety in tasks
I like to do a lot of different things (in a day). I stay away from routines and I try to create variety in the tasks I do. When this happens + I feel responsible for the tasks I do, I become unstoppable.
1000% accuracy
I don't do things for 50% or even 95. In everything I do, I strive for maximum accuracy and/in quality. I'm not easily satisfied and I think there's always room for improvement.
