As a senior product designer in health tech, I had the privilege of working with Femke on refining my online portfolio and presentation slides. Her invaluable insights and guidance significantly enhanced the impact of my portfolio. Femke's organized and direct approach was incredibly valuable for feedback and has been instrumental in shaping my portfolio.
I transitioned from a background in branding and graphic design to Product Design a couple of years ago, and since making the change I have found HUGE value in Femke's online resources! Having learned so much from Femke online already, I can truly say that gaining her guidance as a mentor has been invaluable.
Through my mentorship journey, Femke assisted me with unpacking various topics. Not only did we focus on actual Product Design work, but we also dived into subjects like effective processes, personal development ideas and expectations to consider as my team expands. Being a sole Product Designer in a small team, having Femke's insight has given me incredible direction to understand how I can play a part in building a positive environment for future Product Designers in my company.
On a personal level, Femke warmly welcomed all of my questions and it was truly a joy to connect and chat with her! Really looking forward to doing it again in the future!
I entered my mentorship with Femke during my career transition from IT to UX Design. Throughout our mentorship journey, Femke's knowledge, extensive experience, and advice were invaluable. She skillfully assisted me in revising my resume, helping me reframe my experience to showcase my transferable skills and most relevant professional contributions. She also provided valuable assistance in interview preparation and gave incredibly helpful advice on enhancing and improving my case studies and portfolio presentation. By the end of the five months, I felt that I had gained a much stronger grasp on the UX industry, ultimately leading to landing my first UX Design job! I highly recommend Femke as a mentor for anyone seeking guidance or professional development.
Femke provided guidance to help me position myself in my career. She provided actionable feedback on my portfolio, which allowed me to make changes and reposition myself. Femke was comfortable to talk to and gave helpful guidance during our mentorship call. I would highly recommend her for career guidance.
Femke has a wide breadth of experience and was incredible at giving me the right "nuggets" to pursue deeper. Most of my growth as a designer has been in the silo of freelancing- to where although I have had to learn and grow very quickly, I have missed the collaboration and team practices one would get on a design team. Femke provided me with lots of great insights,and frameworks while helping me articulate my own methodologies and practices. Thank you Femke!
My name is Juan, and I'm a product designer based in London. Recently, I wanted to update my portfolio after five years, so I put together a presentation. However, I felt that I needed feedback from an experienced designer to polish some corners.
That's when I came across Femke, and she helped me a lot. During our brief call, she took a look at my work and provided insightful ideas to build upon. She pointed out key aspects of presenting my work that I had failed to see because I had so much to summarize. She was amazing and to the point. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to have their work reviewed; she knows her stuff. Thank you, Femke!

Hello! I'm a creative director and designer working in EdTech. I met twice with Femke to get some career coaching and guidance.

I had a great coaching call with Femke. She asked good questions and had some helpful advice for me, as I considered different possibilities for my career. I'd definitely recommend her coaching if you're wondering about your next move.
It was time to put my portfolio review together. I hit Femke's Youtube channel and used her videos about portfolio reviews as a template. Result, job offer! Thanks Femke!
I’m a UX/UI designer and a team of one, so Femke’s community is where I have the opportunity to connect with other designers and share ideas. It’s a safe space and very helpful!
