“He is Baloo to our Mowgli, Rafiki to our Simba.”

Miel de Zwart

Senior UX Specialist

T +31 20 70 552 37


We are in awe of Miel and his talent to get under users’ skin without ever rubbing them the wrong way. He does that with us, too, when he quickly gets to the point and hits the nail on the head — charmingly smiling all the way through. Miel sees the bigger picture and rapidly identifies the overall themes when the rest of us are still digesting details.

“Users working effortlessly with an application? That’s like magic.”

A knowledgable, likable colleague, Baloo to our Mowgli, Rafiki to our Simba. He would actually be quite a convincing David Brent if he would take himself little more seriously (fortunately for our Office, he doesn’t). Miel is the one you’ll find yourself singing karaoke duets with after a club night in Berlin. The one you sit across in a North-Korean restaurant, treating your tastebuds while soaking up the tragically absurd atmosphere.
