thijs last product designer résumé & contact

Quick introduction

Very nice to meet you here! My name is Thijs Last and I’m an all-around digital designer living close to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I love everything related to digital designs, art, processes and especially how people interact with them.

With more than 12 years of professional experience as an UX/UI designer for the oil and gas industry, I have developed an user-centric mindset and expertise in conceptualizing and designing B2B software products. With my technical affinity and experience with tech company processes, I have obtained a wide range of knowledge and skills that will allow me to elevate your platform user experience not only for your customers, but also suppliers and employees.

In my free time I like to stay in shape with bouldering. Playing (board)games with friends. And go camping and hiking when on holiday.
