Bio

I worked for top advertising agencies such as VML Copenhagen, McCann Erickson, Rafineri, HappyPeopleProject, and Alametifarika at Istanbul and won numerous awards for my works. Between 2015-2019 I started my own design office ''Merhaba Pazartesi'' and provided corporate design services for startup clients while also freelancing for agencies. In 2019 at New York, Additionally, I co-founded DesignGost, a creative mentoring platform.

As a GMK board member between 2018-2020, I've conducted projects, attended seminars, and organized exhibitions to develop the graphic design occupation in Turkey and increase interaction among designers.

I have over 13 years of experience in advertising campaigns, TV commercials, animation, motion design, illustration, print ads, editorial designs, and new brand designs for startups. I am skilled in working with different teams and disciplines, and I am known for my ability to visualize ideas. I am currently working as a Senior Designer at VML Studio in Copenhagen.
