Product Designer

Martijn managed to turn his hobby into his job. After graduating as an Industrial Product Designer (Windesheim) in 2021, Martijn returned to Fluctus as a Product Designer after a previous successful internship. At home he tinkers with self-built light-electric vehicles. From there arose Martijns' passion for products in which mechanics and electronics come together to create a product in which functional design and user experience have priority.
