Welcome to what was the professional website for my consulting business, Hoekema Design & Editorial (HDE) also known as Hoekema Interactive.
Now that I am retired from a 40-year career in interactive design (who thought that was even possible?), and heading for the exit, I've changed this into a retrospective account of my personal and professional life. Here's what you will find here:
So, what's with this "All About Me" stuff, you may ask - is this some kind of vanity site? Well, yes, I suppose it is. It's been great fun to compile — I hope you find some of it interesing.

It turns out that the first and last significant events of my career are related! Here is a video of a 35-minute talk I gave at the Interaction 18 conference in Lyon in Feb 2018. The talk describes my very first interactive design project, which I led at the Office of Charles and Ray Eames in 1977-78. It's an interesting story, if I do say so myself.
