I'm an independent designer and art director living in Istanbul. Also, working as Art Director of Lider Entertainment and as part-time Teaching Assistant at Sabanci University.
The first brief i worked on was back in 1997 for my mother: 'Can you draw our family for us?' a challenge i immediately accepted and have since perfected. For approximately 20 years, visually expressing environments and my inner world has been my main passion in life.
As a product designer, i focus on creating objects and concepts that provoke emotional interactions between the user and the product; by combining user needs, manufacturing requirements, sustainability and artistic approach. From the communication design perspective, i try to reach a clarified interaction in order to communicate with the receiver in the strongest way.
In recent years, I've worked at Aydiner Lighting, Istanbul Technical University and A|Z ITU Journal of Faculty of Architecture. In 2016, I instructed a workshop called 'Graphic Design Through Personal Experiences', and gave graphic design lectures for 6 weeks at Istanbul Technical University. Apart from the above mentioned, some of my products and works have been exhibited in Istanbul Design Week, Istanbul Design Biennial and Istanbul Innovation Week.
