I joined Instagram as a contractor from October of 2011, and moved to San Francisco in March of 2012. During my time there so far, I've worked on just about all of the web products, the iOS 7 re-design, the Windows Phone app and many other projects.
Before Instagram, I was working as a freelancer in the Netherlands — a tiny little town called Maastricht. In 2006, I co-founded an agency called Airglow Studios, which I was principle designer at for five years.
Ask me anything regarding Instagram, product design, the web, or life. Or coffee. Or cocktails. Wine? Beer? Great Food? Photography? I'd love to hear from you!
Edit: Thanks for the great questions everyone! I'll be answering the rest of them during the day and maybe the weekend. Thanks again for having me. And if you ever want to have a coffee or a drink in SF, just reach out!
P.S.: We're looking for an awesome Communication Designer to join our design team. If you want to learn more, tweet me at @miekd or check out the listing: https://www.facebook.com/careers/department?dept=design&req=a0IA000000CyoZ9MAJ
