Hi there! I am a designer & art director from Istanbul, currently living with my partner and dog in the beautiful city of Amsterdam, working at Ogilvy.

I grew up in the United States of America and Istanbul. I graduated from the graphic arts & design department with honours becoming top of my class, at Marmara University in 2012. I also completed an Erasmus course at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Vienna and a lettering course at EiNA, Barcelona.

Working as an designer & art director my work has been recognised by Cannes Lions, ADCN, Adfest, The One Show, The Golden Drum Awards, Epica Awards, Eurobest, The Loeries, Felis Awards and Crystal Apple Awards.

In addition to my love of branding design, I love creating illustrations combining bold typography & bright colours. I have had the chance to exhibit in Barcelona Design Week, Torino Graphic Days, Why Graphic Design Festival Florence, England, Holland & Australia.
& that is my dog Maru, she is the best.

Say hi!
