Having a prototype is key

As an owner of Spruce, I strongly believe that it is easier to sell your idea to potential buyers or investors if you have a prototype. With a prototype they can now see, touch, hear and smell your idea instead of visualizing what you're talking about from looking at drawings or reading a product description.

Spruce is your ideal partner for building prototypes where hardware and software expertise is needed. My office and lab are located in The Hague (Netherlands), but I do also work on a consultancy basis.

I can help you with

  • Programming

    Almost all the popular web programming languages you can think off • I prefer frameworks like Vue.js with NuxtJS • Angular • Laravel • Wordpress • Responsive • Git workflow • Docker • GraphQL

    I can help you with 3D modeling your prototype and prepare it for production. I design both for clients in The Hague / Den Haag but also for remote clients if it suits your design process

  • 3D printing

    Your prototype can be printed in high resolution and in a wide variety of materials like ABS plastics, metal, ceramics, flexible plastics, etc

  • Creative Thinking

    Problems are there to be solved. I love to be creative and combine existing solutions from different industries to create new prototypes
