About

Dialectic Design is Erwin Hoogerwoord

I started Dialectic Design as a company in 2015 to assist researchers at the Eindhoven University of Technology by developing data visualisations for their research & design projects. What I enjoy most is to collaborate with researchers, designers and engineers to develop new knowledge and technologies. In my work as a designer the driving thought for me is the often-used bicycle for the mind analogy. My passion is to design digital technologies so that they amplify our human capabilities as creatives, engineers, as scientists. Through a dialog or dialectic* with human-made computer technology we can extend our capacity to understand ourselves and our surroundings, and hopefully change it for the better.

I am always interested to talk about new ideas, research areas or problems both large and small. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me, even if it’s just to grab coffee!
