ABOUT
I am a multidisciplinary designer and an amateur photographer currently living in Istanbul. I'm experienced especially web, mobile, icon and print design. Interested in matte painting, illustration and photography.

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES ME?
I believe that multidisciplinary designing has advantages all the time... Doing one thing is always the best way to name yourself as a "professional" but i think, being able to know or do other things can carry you one more step further.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND & WORK EXPERIENCE
I am a graduated from fine arts high school and university. I learn lots of academic knowledge in my student life. These academic knowledge helped me to take me the real professional work life faster. I worked in many creative offices as junior designer, web design specialist, senior designer and art director. I resumed my freelance projects at the same time. I work for many clients as freelancer and i took part in some start-up projects based in Turkey.
