About

Hi, my name is Timo Vossen

I’m a highly motivated, creative thinker with the necessary technical knowledge, specializing in marketing and branding.

When I was fifteen I built my first computer game. From that moment I was hooked. Becoming obsessed with everything that is digital, I started building websites, hacked my smartphone, made my first app and started my own company. As a communications and multimedia design student in Utrecht I found my new passion: graphic design. In my first years at college I’ve kept myself busy with a lot of side activities. For instance, I was a year board member of the Utrecht Student Hockey Club, did multiple committees and worked as a content creator at the Dutch National Student Association.


Besides having experience in graphic design, websites, social media and other digital communications, I also have experience in business, leadership, planning, relationship management and teamwork.

    Which digital teaching methods and support can be applied to eliminate the grammar gap of children with a Development Language Disorder (DLD)....

    Client

    Lectorate Digital Smart Services of the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht.

    The problem

    Which digital teaching methods and support can be applied to eliminate the grammar gap of children with a Development Language Disorder (DLD).

    The solution

    Design a digital tool that enables speech therapists to determine and prioritize treatment goals for a child with DLD. By prioritizing treatment goals, the speech therapist will get a better understanding of the overall treatment. This applies in the treatment process both at the beginning, when prioritizing to get an overview, and later, to keep track of the progress of the treatment goals.

    Problematize the political choices concerning higher education of the past 18 years with a social media campaign…

    Client

    Dutch National Student Association

    The problem

    The last eighteen years there have been a lot of changes made by the Dutch government concerning higher education. All these changes are pressuring college and university student to make more choices, get better grades, finish younger and loan more money. These students are suffering more and more from performance pressure. This is leading to an increase in mental illnesses like depression, burn-out and anxiety. All the coverage of this issue in the Dutch media have been about how social media is causing this effect on students. The media is neglecting the effect that the choices of the government have on them. How do we problematize this issue, get more media coverage and get the Dutch politics to start the debate on this subject?

    The solution

    A video overview of all the changes that were caused by the government concerning higher education in The Netherlands. This will built up from the year 2000 till the year 2018 after which newspaper headlines on the subject will appear on the screen. The video was part of a cross media campaign that was aired at the end of 2018.

    When the campaign was finished there have been multiple coverages by national media corporations and it started a political discussion on the subject.

    Client

    Utrecht Student Hockey CLub

    The problem

    The Utrecht Student Hockey Club needed a new website. The old website did not have a good navigation structure and no mobile version. Members of the club couldn’t find the right information, which caused a lot of unnecessary emails.

    The old website design:


    The solution

    I designed a mobile first website with an easy to use navigation structure. The website is primarily designed for the members of the club to find all the information more easily. Besides the navigation of the website another focus was the mobile version. The previous version did not have a fully functional mobile version, this one does.

    The new website design:
