About

Hey I am Rhys Duindam, AKA Nupky. I am an “Industrial & Experience Designer”. I make to think, and act as an apprentice to everyone so that I design towards my own standards of excellence, which are defined by my past experiences. I design from an intimately personal issue, towards an intimately important future.
