Bart Geelen


Hello! My name is Bart, a designer from the Netherlands. I love to draw and to make sense out of things. Although I like art for the sake of art, the pragmatic Dutch guy in me makes me most passionate about combining visual arts with functional design. I apply this as an UX Designer (e.g. designing aesthetic games or applications) and as an illustrator (e.g. by illustrating on everyday objects).

The reason I joined USI is to connect my two different backgrounds: Psychology and Visual Design. I believe that good design is characterized by a holistic approach, considering the user’s context. I aim for my designs to be visually attractive, with excellent usability and the right balance between functionality and fun.
