My name is Michael Tjaden and I am a Front End Developer from The Hague. My goal is to transform the combination of interaction design, graphics, technology and knowledge about the target audience into an outstanding product.

I enjoy and take pride in creating products that satisfy and anticipate the user's needs in the most efficient way. Products that are easy to use, inviting to look at, but also have a nice feel to them when being used.

Taking the extra effort to make your products excell is in my opinion the key to gaining the trust and loyalty from your audience above your competitors.

Creating the best user experience possible, that is the true mission of a FED.

Recent work

Call Center Interface

  • Interface design,
  • jQuery UI,
  • Custom validation

The call center of Tellus was in need of a more efficient work-flow. This required an easy to use web based tool for repetitive tasks done by people with minimal training.

The new interface decreased average handling by roughly 20% and eliminated wrongful data entry entirely, making it a very successful project.
