The Uitvoeringsinstituut Werknemersverzekeringen (UWV) is the national Dutch employee insurance agency. As part of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment, it is responsible for implementing the laws concerning unemployment insurance and the provision of benefits for those less-able or unable to work. For UWV we created a mobile app. This app will get you started if you become unemployed, looking for a job and apply for unemployment benefits. Through the app you get notifications for a number of things you should do so that you can arrange this at the right time. Along with the conceptteam Jurjan was responsible for the user experience design.

Along with the conceptteam Jurjan created different customer journeys for a prototype. On the basis of the prototype Rabobank has developed a part of the functionalities for the current pilot phase. Rabobank test a totally new design concept of its site and apps. Being rolled out nationally in early 2015. First to the mobile channel, then to the fixed web. The design works on desktop, tablet and smartphone, but with the development of the design and the elements of the application is also anticipate future technologies. This transparency is an important principle in the design. This makes the design future proof so it can work for example on Google Glass, a Smart TV or in your heads-up display.

Breda is a municipality in the province of North Brabant in the Netherlands . The capital of this municipality is the city of Breda. Usability is typically at the top of the list when cities and municipalities list the key success factors for their new website redesign projects. This was a big challenge, since municipalities need to deliver content to a wide array of constituents.
After the success of the Breda website Jurjan created some sub-sites like the e-counter ‘Loket Wegwijs’, Intranet and a ‘SharedService Center’. All websites are designed and build within the rules of mark ‘drempelsvrij’. Drempelvrij.nl is the Dutch quality mark for accessible websites. If a website is accessible, it can be well used by all visitors. The websites are part of the complete redesign of the corporate identity.

The question of Ministry of Economic Affairs was how we could ensure that all employees of Economic Affairs and Foreign Affairs can promote the Netherlands in a clear way. The answer was a 'Toolkit'. A promotional DVD with an image database of 400 photos, ready-to-use PowerPoint presentations for 24 sectors, speak texts, films, animations and printing files. The Toolkit is distributed worldwide and is used by ministries, Dutch trading posts, staff at embassies and industry associations to promote the Netherlands.
VolkerWessels is a Dutch group of companies with 14.500 employees and about 120 companies and offices worldwide. The group of companies are independent with their own profit and market responsibility and are part of a close-knit internal network. Before 2008 these companies all had their own identity and website. VolkerWessels wanted more unity in the design identity.
Along with the conceptteam Jurjan designed website stuctures within the new corporate identity where all 120 operating companies could participate. For example: Visser & Smit Hanab, Vialis, VolkerRail, Boele & van Eesteren, Goossen Te Pas Bouw and VolkerWessels Bouw & Vastgoedontwikkeling bv
