Hello,

I’m Paul van Laar. My curiosity about the world is the reason I am an enthusiastic Designer. I like to explore possibilities to gain a greater understanding about the topics I work on. This gets me personally involved in my projects and makes me passionate about Design.

I am a hands-on type of person. I like to try out a lot of concepts and ideas through fast models, small sketches and quick 3D Models. I have found that this kind of approach gives me unexpected and interesting results.

Through my one year experience working with Studio F. A. Porsche in Zell am See I acquired experience, advanced sensitivity and expertise.

My semester abroad has lead me to spend half a year in Brazil were I learned to speak decent Portuguese and basic Spanish. I have also lived in Australia for one year and speak fluent English. Thanks to my stays abroad I am independent, self organized and self-confident.

I studied in Darmstadt, Germany and made my diploma in September 2017. Now I am working as a freelance Industrial Designer in Göttingen.
