ABOUT ME

Hello! My name is Elina van Dijke, I’m 36 years old and I work as a digital designer (UX&UI) at Hemtex. I also run a small online store in my garage and I’m driven by new challenges.

I like to knit, listen to trance, look out over the sea, go snowboarding, start companies and be out in nature. I secretly listen to christmas music in September and I love to set up and work towards goals, both private and professional. I love living on the country side! I studied Multimedia Computing in England between 2006-2009. There I learned to speak English, animate, code, databases, design, video editing, photography, web design and 3D modelling. Since I am passionate about digital design and interaction design, it became natural for me to continue on that path.

Digital Design
My work as a Digital Designer includes designing and creating newsletters that are intended to increase conversion rate, inspire or provide information about products. I also create campaign materials for the e-com, landing pages, digital ads, paid social and videos. I mainly work in SketchApp, Photoshop, InVision, Illustrator and After Effects but I have also experiences with Figma, Premiere Pro and In Design.

UI & UX
I create digital interfaces where the main focus lies on user-friendliness.Through AB testing and user tests you can understand problems with the interface. It’s not always the most beautiful design that gives the best results. I love the expression “Kill your darlings”.

E-commerce
I am passionate about e-commerce and retail and my dream is to continue in this field of work. I see the future as digital and I want to strive for the best customer experience with as little friction as possible. I do not believe in the death of stores but through unified commerce a company should be synced in all channels.
