Thank you for your interest in my work. My name is Miriam van Vuuren and I love digital arts. I am available for commission and freelance work, as well as full-time or part-time job offers, so feel free to contact me! Currently I live in the Netherlands, but I would love to work and live in another country. I’m quite internationally focused.

I majored Communication & Multimedia Design at the Hogeschool Arnhem & Nijmegen, focusing on usability/visual information design and user psychology. I graduated with merit. You can view my results here.

I have a broad skill set, ranging from website design and animations to 3D, photo editing, and logo design. During my internships I specialised in usability and visual information design; anything regarding to transferring information to users and how they can utilise and absorb the content. Visual information design really peaked my interest, so expect some more on that to pop up on my portfolio! I would love to do more with this field, working closely with the end user. 3D has been put aside for now, but I will keep working on video/animation, website design and broadening my skills.

IMG_3908_kleinCurrently I use the following applications:

  • Adobe CS5. I can work with After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, Fireworks, Flash and DreamWeaver.
  • Autodesk 3DS-Max.
  • Balsamiq
  • Paint Tool SAI
  • Other applications used within specific projects will be mentioned in the portfolio.

I can use the following ‘languages’:

  • HTML5, CSS
  • JavaScript (jQuery)

I have intentions of learning other design applications and will update this list as my skills improve. I’m also trying to learn programming languages like JavaScript and PHP.

Anyway, feel free to contact me!
