My name is Niek Marks,a technical focused industrial designer, with a love for simple mechanical solutions, prototyping and manufacturing techniques.

My passion is to understand every working principle of our world. From simple mechanical solutions to complex systems. Every day brings a problem or product that has to be unraveled and understood. Since I was young there has not been a single product in my life that I did not pry open with a screwdriver and hopefully that fascination will never vanish

My Resume (English)


Industrial design is a broad field of expertise. To explain what my expertise is I will first state that I am not an interaction designer, website designer or strategic consultant.

I focus and excel on the technical side of the design process. Translating concepts to actual products. By combining material properties, production techniques and without giving in on aesthetics or quality.
