My name is Robin Cornelissen, I am a 24 year old Industrial Designer and I’m living all my life in Venlo. Since I was a young guy I am strongly interested in General Technics and Design. In my first years of high school I knew I wanted to pursue my career as an engineer. I started my HBO education in Venlo and achieved my Bachelor-degree. After my bachelor degree IPO I realized I want to draft more out of my motivation of learning. I had the feeling there’s still a drive to learn and I did my premaster at the Technical University in Eindhoven.
Industrial product Design (HBO)
Based onprojects I learned to design products and what suitable production techniques can be applied to realize this product. For this I need knowledge of different disciplines. I’m not only learn how to think creatively; how to apply color and shape into a design, but I learned all about production techniques, and materials. Also the commercial side of product development, such as producing a design as cheap as possible and making a marketing sales concept was a big part of the learning process. This education was focused on the middle of three fields: design, engineering and a little bit of business.
Premaster Industrial Design
Over this past period I feel my identity as a designer has shifted to a more analytical and professional approach. In the period as a pre master student I started to see the analytical design process. I started to see the benefits of using a systematic approach and different methodologies/guidelines to do my projects. This helped me create an identity to have a glimpse of how my future is going to be.
Realizing I’m doing things that I would never thought I would do, requires a change of mind-set. In the beginning of the study I didn’t had developed this mind-set. At the end I realise I did, it enriches my perspective on my own abilities, passions and self-confidence.
I believe in creative thinking, spontaneous decisions and making fun everywhere. I have experience in translating ideas to a fully working product ready for production. I gained this experience at my previous education and my working experience at “NEW-Innolab” as a junior designer. Furthermore I have working experience as an R&M employee at the injection moulding factory “Kellpla”. At this moment I’m working part time for a company that’s specialized in injection moulding. This includes working on moulds and injection-moulding machines.
I continuously challenge myself, trying to be eager in every discipline, knowing what my strengths and weaknesses are and developing insight in who I am. I start with a design brief at one point and change along the project as I look for design opportunities within the context. I’m moving from zero to one, not from one to hundred. That means I’m focused on creating new solutions, not copying the existing ones.
“Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people” Leo Burnett
For a sustainable future, I see design that shifts people’s needs into a whole new experience through approaching each product as an individual design and engineering challenge.
In my field of expertize, problem solving, simple solutions and cost effective results are most important. These criteria represent the process and technique I want to work with. I see design for shaping a sustainable society. People have to see, feel, hear, smell and taste my design in which the coherent interaction between the product and the user will deliver a highly modern and fresh experience. In my design I want to create a WOW factor. This factor is a starting point for the quest in simplicity, innovation and user friendliness in Industrial Design. Being the link between the rich fantasy world of a director, designer, producer/artist and the target group, would be an end stage for me. I want to follow the direction towards “starting big and out of the box” and reduce/ translate it into a product for the mainstream target group. The designs I create will not only be determined for consumption but will extend and enrich the comfort and the way of living in today’s society.
• Sometimes not patient
• Trust/believe people quickly
• Can not handle criticism very much
• Hate to make failures
• To much involved in finding solutions (obsession)
• Sometimes difficult to convince (cocky)
• Easy adaptability
• Optimist (positive approach)
• Quick insight into character
• Hunger to learn
New design of a bicycle. The bicycle has a neat, slick and fast design. There are no extra functions added to the bicycle. Special to this bike is the treadle which has a special cog-weel.Launch Project
Starting with asking the following questions:
• How can I influence the waiting environment in a way the patient experience a positive feeling (less stress)?
• How can I create a seating element that affect the collaboration between privacy and social interaction in a medical waiting environment”?
When patients are treated for cancer for example through chemotherapy, the senses (observations from the environment) are extra sensitive. The patient is not resistant to stimuli while a healthy person can. It is important to reduce these stimuli through the healing environment. The ambient environment, in terms of daylight, fresh air, and sound, has been the subject of already a significant amount of research. Stress is the main focus of what has to be eliminated. When waiting in a waiting room the patients struggle with the overall lack of privacy. Already being exposed, probed, prodded, studied, and examined can be psychological difficult for the patient. Also being watched or having eye contact aroused anxiety. So when waiting they become more stressed and anxiety builds, the waiting time seems longer and the time seems to pass slower causing them to become even more stressed. This can lead to: cause an early departure from a treatment, withhold important medical information which will lead to medical errors and risking the patient wellbeing (less complications). Through user focus design I created a seating element that will decrease this stress. The concept is specially designed so the user can change his privacy and the social interaction by using a simple, playful and rotating movement in the chair. By implement an iPad new information could help them find other ways to gain some control and cope with their disease and changing condition. Also reading a book or playing a game can distract you from concerns and anxiety. You can influence the environmental stress factors and respond to your needs and incentives at that particular waiting moment. It would be premature to say the concept is fully working for this waiting area design. It can be determined when the prototype is being used in a real-life waiting room.Launch Project
Presidium is a worldwide leader in the development and manufacturing of innovative gemological instruments for the diamond and gemstones industries. I had to design a new housing for a gem tester. The challenge was to think of an ergonomic form that is parallel with every handling you do when you use the device. The measurements and size where indicated in advance. The user has to measure the gems with as little as possible handlings and high accuracy. The presentations sheets shows all kind of different ways and designs to measure the gem.Launch Project

Leading progress, technical perfection and the best quality, these are the pillars and the philosophy I used in the construction of this vacuum cleaner . In this new generation of vacuum cleaners I offer you a sophisticated product, which set standards in terms of cleaning performance, reliability and ease of operation. I present you the EasyWay
The research of this vacuum cleaner is based on the irritations of the user. It is concluded that there are several criteria which should be an improvement to a new breakthrough in the vacuum cleaners industry. Thinking of the criteria : design , usability and storage of the hose. The research showed that the storage of the device is the biggest annoyance. The solution is groundbreaking. To keep the EasyWay compact storage and friendly hose can be stored in the cleaner. This results in a additional feature an interesting twist to the design. The cleaner may be seen, he can stand in the room, he may be admired by guests, he may serve as decoration of your interior, endless possibilities through the simple yet highly functional and modern design.
In modern design course also includes an innovative form. The vacuum cleaner has a round shape which has a compact look and also excellent maneuverability! The ergonomic handle is developed in a way the user hasn’t any problems with grabbing and moving the vacuum cleaner, it also fits seamless with the rest of the form.
The wheels are integrated in the design of the vacuum cleaner and provide a nimble suction experience. The wheels prevent together with the protruding edge (at the side) possible damage to your interior.
The power of design is found in user-friendliness of the cleaner back. Thinking on the telescopic handle, locking and unlocking of the bag, material use, easy manual etc.
Just stay on The Easy Way!Launch Project
Some of my sketches I made last couple of years.
First a digital sketch of a cordless drill.
Second a digital sketch of some sunglasses.
Finally as short design process I did for design a 3 wheeled carving vehicle. This vehicle has the following description:
In this modern day and age, the environment is growing in importance to everyone. There is a forthcoming growth in energy demand for our planet. This demand is increasing to a point of which there will be no fossil fuels left for us to use. With this in mind, we need to start thinking about new and clean energy sources which are more efficient in consumption. Vehicle emissions are one of the largest influences of the world’s pollution. Therefore the automotive industry is an industry to look closely at. At Fontys Hogescholen Venlo they are realizing this as well. The school has started a project surrounding this ecological problem. The goal of this project is to develop an environmental clean and compact vehicle. This vehicle will be used for transport within an urban environment and will have to carry two people and a sufficient amount of luggage for a limited distance. Because of safety regulations in the urban environment, the speed limit is reduced to 45 km/h. Hereby the vehicle closes the gap between a car and a scooter. The vehicle will therefore have characteristics of both a car and a scooter. One of which is a tilting system that allows the vehicle to maneuver through city corners easily.
A new corporate identity for Harry Cornelissen, Syncope.
This is a new, clear and clean identity. Only the color is the most notable factor in this identity. The color orange over black is screaming over the screen but still in balance. The combination with the color and the modern font result in a professional and serious looking corporate identity.
