"A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."
My name is Mark Pelin. I was born and raised in The Netherlands. At the moment I live close to Rotterdam.
People often describe me as a friendly, reliable and honest guy. As a designer, I'm patient and precise in what I do.
In 2015 I successfully graduated from the Hogeschool Rotterdam with a bachelor in Industrial Design Engineering.
In my free time, I work with Adobe Creative Cloud. I like to explore new programs. I have been using Photoshop for a fairly long time and during my study I started using Illustrator and InDesign more often. I used Muse to create this website. Last but not least, I have basic experience with Adobe Lightroom, After Effects and Premiere Pro.
After finishing my high school at the Montessori Lyceum in Rotterdam, I moved to Romania for almost two years.
I developed myself as a person, gained new experiences and slowly started finding out what I would like to do in the future. After returning to The Netherlands in 2011, I started Industrial Design Engineering.

TOOLS USED DURING PHASE
Research that serves as input for the design phase. This phase ends with a list of preferences and requirements, which is created together with the client. The expectations are clear.
Creating multiple concepts for new products. These can also be concepts that solve problems with existing products, so they can be improved.
Testing the concepts to check if the preferences and requirements are met. The test phase often leads to new analysing and designing phases. These "loops" further improve concepts.
Preferences and requirements
"Great design is transparent."
The portfolio section on this website contains projects I worked on during my 4 year study. This section also includes the internships I've done at Tchai International and Horrex. The 3D-modeling program I used during all these projects is Solidworks.

You can also find some information about other things I've done in my spare time, for example work done in Photoshop and Illustrator.

Design is how it works."
