I am Gwendolene van der Merwe, a UX Designer and illustrator from Somerset West. I studied Visual Communication Design at the University of Stellenbosch and have a background in illustration and graphic design.
During my years working as a digital designer I have come to realize that UX design is a perfect discipline that has managed to capture the best of most of my interests — human behaivior, psychology, accessibility, visual design, technology, strategic thinking and storytelling.
I have cultivated my strengths in visual storytelling and empathy to compliment my designs into relatable and accessible user experiences. These are also aspects that will add value to your products.
I am a team-player aswell as efficient in my time management and am proactive in how I approach my work tasks. I am always trying to learn new things and thus will make an excellent asset to your team as I am able to adapt to changes and I love a good challenge.
When I am not designing I am either conquering an enemy camp in Assassins Creed, or illustrating a story in my make-shift art-studio in the garage while listening to some Case File or Myths and Legends.
