Mike van Putten

Human Being

Oh hey, my name is Mike van Putten! I currently live in Nijmegen, The Netherlands where I am studying Communication & Media Design at HAN University of Applied Sciences. My hobbies and interests are: Filmmaking, Web-design and Development, Photography, Design, Running, playing Video Games, Music and the internet. I was born on the 30th of September in 1996.

Film making

One of the things I enjoy most is making YouTube video's with my friends! It all started in 2008 when I made a Super Mario parody called 'Super Gario Bros'. Then I discovered Adobe After Effects and Sony Vegas and started making many more videos! It's been 8 years since then and through making video's I have learned a lot about editing, visual effects, motion graphics, sound editing and cameras. I have decided that I want to continue making YouTube video's like TimeBomb and 1-UPsmanship as a hobby and only occasionally work on video's professionally.

Web Design and Development

In 2012 I started learning HTML and CSS. I felt like making websites was a useful skill to have and as it turns out it's not only a useful skill but also a lot of fun! Not only did I learn HTML and CSS but I also learned PHP, MySQL and JavaScript so I could create dynamic and interactive websites. And my Photoshop skills help out hugely for when I design my own websites. It's been 3 years but it feels as if I'm still learning, I want my websites to be perfect in every way and there are always new ways to do that!

Work Experience

Byron Reclamebureau

In 2014 and 2015 I worked at Byron Reclamebureau in Nijmegen as an intern. They are mostly a web design and web development company but they also do stuff like videos, printwork and copywriting. During the time I worked there I got to work on many websites for local businesses. I even lead a few projects and made 2 videos!

BaseMedia

In 2016 I worked at BaseMedia in Ooij where I gained lots of useful experience working with webshops. I worked on many features and design elements of their webshop Speelgoedfamilie.nl. And I also got the chance to create a web app for Honig Events.
