I’m Sebastiaan de With.

I’m a Dutch designer living in Santa Cruz, California.

I’m currently the co-founder and designer at Lux. We make award-winning apps for photography and video like Halide, Kino, Spectre, and Orion.

I also run a small design and photography studio, with a focus on motorcycles, technology and typography. You can see some of my design work here, and photography here

A while ago, I did design work for various companies like Apple, where I worked on iCloud / MobileMe and the Find My apps, as well as Sony, Mozilla, Oracle, frog design, Publicis, HP, and EA.

I also love giving talks about design — though I do it less frequently now that I’m a dad.

Besides my work, I love riding motorcycles, nature, hiking, history, nice things, reading, cooking and humanity.
