About Us

Start the conversation.

What makes us different?

Always looking for the simple solution that works best for you, or even better: for your target customer.

Where do we stand for?

Design that is accessible and user-friendly.
We think along, take a ‘deep dive’ into your business and advise where possible.

Way of working

Short communication lines are preferred.
By keeping a project clear and simple, it is easy to implement and use.
You value being independent, don’t you?
No obligations afterward, no fixed subscriptions or coupons.

Larger projects we approach in a flexible way, you could call it ‘Agile’.

Who are Designlab?

I am Mariken de Ruiter, web designer, specializing in User Experience (UX) design and conversion. I work from my studio based in Amsterdam and partly from Italy, in the hills near Torin. We can live the life we love and keep offering personalized, tailored services to our clients.

I often say ‘we’ because I don’t operate in isolation. I tap into an incredible level of skill and knowledge from an international group of WordPress experts.
Working with this close network of trusted professionals ensures I can deliver exactly what’s needed for the success of your digital projects.

I’m the founder of Designlab.

What’s in it for you?

I’m glad you asked. It means you’ll be employing the best person for the job, no matter what the job is. As a client of Designlab, you’ll get access to my more than 12 years of web design experience plus my network of professionals, to deliver a solution that will meet the needs of your business and delight your target audience.
Likewise, if I discover your project is outside my zone, I’ll be open about that and will give you directions to someone who might be a better fit.
