My name is Louise van der Bijl, and I have spent a good 14 years of my life in web and graphic design. I founded The SharePoint Experience in October 2012.
I am an experienced and creative user experience professional with a proven record in UX leadership, strategy, people management and innovation. I have been responsible for the user experience and design of various web application platforms and custom web and mobile applications.
My latest obsession is responsive design. I created on of South Africa’s first responsive SharePoint 2010 sites, and now I say “Go Responsive, or go home… just make sure it is backwards compatible”. But SharePoint is not the only platform I work with, I have experience with most CMS’s and with custom applications (both mobile and web).
I have expanded my horizons by including Windows 8 Applications, Windows Phone 8, Android, iPhone and custom applications. If it has a need for UX or UI, I am interested in it.
I believe in one simple saying – Do what you love, then find some one to pay you for it.
