Portrait of Joes Koppers

Early days

While studying Graphic Design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy ‒ in the early days of the www ‒ I quickly grew a fascination for digital media, introducing endless possibilities of communicating with a user.

In those years I designed an adaptive browser concept, which won an international award and kickstarted my career as independent designer/developer. While working with pioneering places like VPRO digitaal and Waag Society and getting a Master at Sandberg Instituut, I founded USE.media as a place to collaborate and discover.

The following years I was creating experimental websites, looking for the edge of technical possibilities, exploring interactive video projections and designing immersive touchscreen experiences. At the same time I worked with commercial clients to prototype new online ideas for them and create friendly user interfaces.

Today

I’ve become a specialist in designing for complex online applications, am a skilled javascript developer and am still on the look out for new technical possibilities and devices.

I’m involved in a couple of startups, like helping to shape a digital product as part of a team, or operate as an independent small studio to create webapps with help of talented professionals from my network if needed.

I live and work in Amsterdam, am father of two young daughters, enjoy renovating and designing the interior of our historic house and dedicate at least one day of the workweek to raising the girls.
