Welcome to another edition of Portfolio of the Week, the place where we feature infographic designers and data visualization experts from all over the World. Today, it’s a pleasure to introduce Jeroen van Ingen, a 39 years old graphic designer specialized in information design, from Utrecht, in the heart of the Netherlands.
Jeroem shared with us some of his favorite works and told us a bit about himself:
“After elementary school the choice was easy, I love to draw so i went to Grafisch Lyceum Utrecht to learn everything about the graphic industry like Illustration, Printing, Photography, Bookbinding the oldschool way, before everything was done whit a computer. Yes I know i’m old.”
“Years later, after Grafisch Lyceum Utrecht, I went to Amsterdam to study graphic design. It was hard to get a job after that so I did several non-graphic jobs. 12 years ago I got asked by a friend of mine, Karin Schwandt, to join her to make infographics at her company Schwandt Infographics. We started whith the two of us, the company grew in the following years up to a total of 10 employees. We worked for a lot of big Dutch companies, newspapers an magazines such as Nuon, Akzo Nobel, Algemeen Dagblad, KPN, NRC and so on.”
“In 2008 we where awarded with a Silver medal at the Malofiej Infographics Summit for the interactive project we did for Ecoson a innovative company specialized in turning dead animals in to biofuel and energy. It is one of the works I present below.”
“I stopped working at Schwandt Infographics in October 2015 and decided to take my career to a new level and do freelance work.”
“The fun part about this job is the diversity in projects, nothing is never the same and you learn about so many different things. ”
“I really like the innovation in technical design, therefor I love to do technical illustrations and process visualizations, as you can see in my portfolio. My favorite choices of tools to make my work are Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Maxon Cinema4d.”
“Apart from that, I like to watch as much movies as I can, play basketball, painting, drink beer and spend time with my beautiful wife and kids.”
And here are the works Jeroen shared with us:

Design goal: We first made infographics that were printed on A1 panels so that the client can put these at the different components at the plant so they can do tours whit there clients.
After we done this we thought “lets make a interactive infographic of these boards”, we presented this idea to our client and they really liked it, so we made the interactive infographic.
