Sandra de Ridder

I’m a UX/UI designer with over 20 years of experience. My main focus is to design websites and mobile applications that allow the user to reach their goal in an easy and intuitive way. Figma, Sketch and Adobe Suite have no secrets for me and I quickly find my way around new tools.

The collaboration with developers is easy because of my experience with both development and project management. I know how to convince stakeholders to go for the best solutions for the user. With my experience, I like to inspire other designers and help them to expand their knowledge, but I also like to get inspired by fellow team members.

I am always eager to learn new skills. In 2023 I’ve completed a course in behavioural design at the Behavioural Change Academy. A valuable addition to my UX knowledge when defining wishes and requirements, with user research and discussions with stakeholders.

Until February 15th 2024 I’ve been working as a freelance UX/UI & visual designer at GITP. From pure visual design for marketing & sales and redesign of the corporate website, up to improvement and further development of the assessment platform. I have set up a design system, implementation is still in development, but we have already been able to make great UX improvements.

Another big project I have been working on in the last couple of years is the new application flows for insurance and consumer credits at ABN AMRO bank. An Agile environment that covered all facets of UX, including data driven design, user research and a design system in development. As I am used to work with offshore teams I am used to speak, read and write in English. This is also when I found out that working in a corporate environment suits me well.

 Curious how I can add value to your team? Let’s get in touch!
