I am Co-owner, ICT-Manager and Financial Manager of Student in Opdracht (Student on Assignment). I started this company together with 3 other students as a part of our Minor (Media Entrepreneurship) at the Amsterdam University of Applied Science.

What I do

As the ICT-Manager I am responsible for all aspects of our online platform. I have built the website in the WordPress CMS (Content Management System) and I used a template to make it more easy. After that I made a lot of .css and .php adjustments. I also designed the Student in Opdracht Logo.
As the Financial-Manager I am responsible for managing the finances of our business, sending invoices and providing and interpreting all financial information.

Logo Design

For the logo design of Student in Opdracht, I wanted to make sure that the logo would be simple, memorable and fit the company. I had chosen for a paperclip design. This paperclip stands for connecting businesses and students and also an extra link to a better future for the student. It is a minimalistic logo which used flat design to give it a faux realistic texture. We then decided to give it a white color and place it in a purple circle. This color stands for intelligence, quality and creativity.

Website Design

For the Student in Opdracht website, I used the WordPress CMS because of my previous experience with it and the user-friendly interface. I also used a template and a couple of plugins which gave me the possibilty to implement the functionalities we needed. It took a lot of time to make the login system and job managing system work. Despite of the template, it was neccesary to make a lot of adjustments in the .css and also a couple in the .php files.
