About

Vasilis van Gemert is a lecturer at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. Here he teaches the next generation of digital product designers about working with the web as a material.

In recent years his focus has shifted from creating websites based on industry best practices, to creating tailor made experiences for real individuals with disabilities. Together with his students he takes a critical and artistic approach to designing things because he really believes we haven’t explored halve of the possibilities, while at the same time we have ignored halve of the people.

In his spare time he turns old rotary phones into interfaces for Spotify playlists, and he writes scripts for his drawing robot.
