ABOUT

Hi,

This is Mies Loogman.

Graduated at Design Academy Eindhoven Mies Loogman has started her own company that focusses on information design and seeks to make complex information accessible and tangible to a broader public. She feels the need to involve people into developments that are not easily understood by non-experts on the topic. These developments need to be accessible and understandable for everyone. To let them think about, and understand, what could happen in the future and the effects new developments can have on the society. It is all about providing people with information to give them the chance and opportunity to form their own opinion. From Mies’ point of view design is not merely product related but can be used as a tool of communication.

The focus of the company lies on design thinking and information design and the accompanying methodologies to communicate these thoughts of information. Nature related topics peak her curiosity but the interest also lies elsewhere. She likes to collaborate with universities and institutions to create a co-working environment in which design is intertwined with the knowledge of others.
