I am Rhys Duindam, a 24 year old Industrial Designer from New Zealand/Holland. In my spare time I enjoy golfing, skateboarding, filming and playing guitar. I am a proactive and enthusiastic interaction/industrial designer and I am always looking to learn and innovate. My vision on design is to improve self-esteem through fun activity. By giving people the power to ‘magically/playfully’ control their environment, my “tools of leisure” are able to turn ordinary designs into extra-ordinary experiences that boost a person’s self-esteem. At my startup, Nupky, we use design to empower great technologies, in ways that appreciate the playful human experience. We specialize in obvious ideas, that don't exist yet.
