Interview with Jordy Veldhuis

1. Please tell me about the services you provide and the work.

I am a graphic designer and I use this skill in various ways. For example in UI and UX designs for website or apps. With Ondeline I also provide clients with the implementation of these tools, so a design becomes reality. With Ondeline I help companies to develop an innovative appearance (online and offline). You have the idea, we visualize and develop.

Besides these services I love to create, so Pompeusclothing and Tropicalglacier are other expressions of my art and love for design.

This 100% organic cotton t-shirt was designed by Jordy and features an illustration with an environment friendly message.

2. What kind of design do you  specialize in (or like)?

I apply my designs in different ways, as I said before. So it really doesn’t matter if it contains creating a user friendly interface for a web application or editing a picture I took in my weekend. 

What I love the most is the creating part. Being able to think about solutions or a nice look-and-feels and visualize it. Creating something from nothing. The variation in the different purposes I use my designs keeps my work really fun. 

3. What is important to you in your work?

The important things are freedom. Being able to work wherever I want or whenever I want. For example I went to Spain last March for a ‘workation’, it was a wonderful experience that I could work on my Dutch projects. Unfortunately had to get back earlier due to the corona situation in Spain.

4. Why did you become a zzp?

After a 6 month trip, I came home and started applying. I found out it’s really hard to find a suitable job. So I started as a ZZP’er to work on things which I really love. Of Course there are always pros and cons. A disadvantage that I have less pleasure in, for example, is accounting. But with the right external help, that’s no problem either!

5. Please tell me briefly about your daily schedule.

I usually start working around 8:30 am. Depends on the day if I do a workout before I start working or during my workday. My workday ends around 5:00 or 6:00 pm. Only if I have deadlines or a really busy schedule I work in my evenings. Besides working its time for family, chilling and hobbies.

6. What is your approach to work, family time and personal time?

I think family time is important, so I try to visit them once a week. Same with friends and personal time. In my opinion a healthy balance between these is the best. It happens to me without planning it too much, if I need personal time I’ll just separate myself from others.
