About Me

I’m Siebe Golbach a freelance product designer based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. As an experienced product design engineer, I can shape your idea in to a tangible product. I love to be challenged by developing new products with moving mechanical components or design a stylish enclosure. My interests are broad, but my core passion is to invent, visualize and realize new ideas. Currently, I’m already 8 years into product development, both company employed and as freelancer. I was part of the development of various consumer, industrial and medical products, which are being used around the globe.

I’m a curious and critical person, looking for alternative approaches, new combinations and new standards to realize your next idea. My organized yet flexible and proactive approach is essential for an innovative product development, in which I strive to design aesthetically interesting minimalist products that are both functional and efficient to use. Being a freelancer, I can work independent or enhance your team and deliver a fresh approach and new insights in your current project. My core expertise focuses on the concept development and detailed engineering up-to production. For extensive and/or more challenging projects, I make use of a broad network of design and manufacturing partners. This enabling me to quickly adapt and fit the expertise to the project.

About industrial designer Siebe Golbach. I started my design career with the study IPO (Industrial Product Design) at the Saxion University, I learned the essential design principles and put them into practice at various companies like, BPO in Delft, Air Aroma in Melbourne and Fluctus in Groningen.

To further deepen my knowledge, I studied at the university of Twente and earned a degree as Master in Industrial Design Engineering in 2013. The first years as a professional product designer, I have been lead design engineer at Waaijenberg Mobilteit. The main project was the development of the Canta2, a disability vehicle, better known as the little red (45km/h) car. This project was an extensive developmental process that I was part of, from initial drawings to product launch in 2017. It improved my expertise on concept development, complex surface modeling and prototyping up to tooling. After the product launch, I continued with the optimization of the product as well as the production process, resulting in 200% production output.

In the meantime, I came in contact with different companies that needed product development. I embraced this opportunity to be part of a completely different type of product. This was the moment I started to work freelance. The diversity of projects is a great way to utilize both my design and engineering skills in versatile projects. As a freelance product designer I have had the opportunity to collaborate on some great new developments, from DNA-samplers for the medical market till a disability vehicle.
