My name is Erik (@nerik) and I am a
(I imagine and build nice things for all kinds of screens)
I am a happy member of lab212 :)
I like immersive user experiences. I am fascinated by interaction and pretty things generated and animated by code. I like to experiment and tinker with what's new. I like design. I like designers ♥.
(I also like music, good food, simple things)
I advise, analyse and code. I like minimalistic and pragmatic code (rather toolset than framework, composition than inheritance, best practices than design patterns...). I like efficient designer/developer workflows. I like open source.
I worked in startups, in agencies, in an e-learning company. As en employee, freelancer, student; in France and in the Netherlands.
I learned at the Gobelins School in Paris. I now teach there from time to time.
