Pascal de Man


Pascal's journey into the realm of technology and human behavior began in his early childhood, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how things function. From dismantling objects to uncover their hidden worlds, to reassembling them in improved forms, he developed a deep fascination for understanding the inner workings of both the physical and human realms. This passion found a perfect outlet when he encountered his first computer, enabling him to merge his analytical mindset with programming.

From that point forward, he delved into the realm of analyzing (re)actions, seeking patterns and optimizing processes using both human and machine interactions. This exploration led him to pursue a study in Advanced Informatics, followed by Interactive Media Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. During his time there, he honed his skills in crafting user-centered solutions, blending diverse media and platforms to achieve his objectives.

After completing his studies, Pascal, alongside Olivier and Roeland Otten, co-founded the internet studio Toxit and the innovative Holland-Interactive in 2009. Since then, he has been working as a freelance internet and multimedia programmer based in Rotterdam. Over the years, his expertise has been applied to a wide range of projects, encompassing websites, games, mobile apps, data visualisations, navigation systems, books, video browsers, pattern and profile generators, interactive videos, art installations, and product prototypes.

In addition to his professional work, Pascal embraced a teaching role in 2011. Initially at the Communication and Multimedia Design department of the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences until 2013. There, he imparted his knowledge to first and second-year students, introducing them to the fundamentals of front-end development and prototyping. Starting 2012, he expanded his instructional endeavors to the Graphic Design department of the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. Throughout his teaching experience, Pascal has held various positions as a Coding tutor, guiding students in realizing their interactive projects across web, print, physical space, and beyond.

Pascal de Man's diverse experiences and expertise have shaped him into a dynamic professional who combines a deep understanding of technology with an appreciation for human behavior and creative problem-solving. He continues to make significant contributions to the fields of internet and multimedia programming while nurturing the next generation of innovative minds through his teaching endeavors.
