My name is Erika van der Bent (34 yr). I am a freelance UI/UX designer, product designer and art director digital media with more then 15 years of experience. Specialized in interfaces for the web, mobile devices, interactive experiences and online branding.
Based in seaside town Scheveningen, Den Haag, The Netherlands.
The surf capital of Northern Europe.

After I studied Design & Technology in Rotterdam I began my career as a junior designer for internet agency Intermax in Rotterdam. In 2010 I started my own design stuido Geeft Vorm. Geeft Vorm is Dutch and means ‘Gives Shape’ or ‘Is Designing’, in case you were wondering. This gave me the opportunity to collaborate with some of the leading digital agencies or directly with the client. 
I realize your business objectives through design.
Helping you by finding functional solutions in a minimal form with a fresh and innovative approach. Digital products which are simple, beautiful and easy to use.  I have passion for solving product problems while balancing all facets of a user experience and collaborating closely with multiple disciplines.
I work within a strong network of designers, developers, illustrators, writers, film makers, copywriters etc.

I would love to chat to you about your project!


Other than my passion towards tech and design, I am a passionate surfer and traveler. I like to discover the world, far away and close by. Always in search for good waves, the best coffee/food/work spots and inspirational people.
