Versatile, multidisciplinary, international.
I'm an internationally trained Product Designer who nerds out on delivering delightful products and experiences. I love the challenge of enabling convenience with good design.
I grew up in Istanbul but call many places home. Before becoming a designer, I obtained an academic mashup of engineering and marketing from Bogazici University in Turkey. Then, I moved to New York to study Design Management at Pratt Institute. One of my projects got an award in Core77 Design Awards 2016 under "Service Design" category.
I worked at globally notable companies such as Time Inc, Refinery29 and Tommy Hilfiger and more and freelanced for fast growing startups from New York, San Francisco, Dallas, London and Istanbul. I called Berlin new home and currently work for foodora, the fastest growing entities of Delivery Hero group.
When I am not designing, I write about design and usability on Harvard Business Review Turkey., try to build a community around social innovation as one of the leaderships in OpenIDEO Berlin Chapter. I also enjoy conducting workshops in UX conferences, mentoring start-ups and guest lecturing in universities.
When I am not designing or networking, I try to immerse myself into new cultures and experiences, constantly dreaming about going back to my part-time singing career.
