Tim Van Damme

Tim Van Damme is a freelance interface designer at Made by Elephant based in Machelen, Belgium. He’s been making websites for about 8 years now, and decided to turn professional 3 years ago.

Tim is a widely recognised designer due to his beautiful (and groundbreaking) work such as 24 Ways and for his excellent blog.

The Intro…

My Mac is like my left lung, living without it is possible, but a little uncomfortable. I have a 15″ MacBook Pro (unibody), and love everything about it. I’ve set up an external screen at home and at the office, and drag my laptop with me everywhere I go.

I try grouping apps in a way that they make sense. Tools, management, communication and entertainment.

The Dock…
