Esra (1986, Istanbul) is a Designer / Art Director at Ogilvy & Mather, Amsterdam.

After studying interior design, she decided to have an academic career and worked as a Professor Assistant, taught basic design at Marmara Fine Arts Faculty. After 2 years of working at faculty, she discovered that being an academician was not for her and wanted to focus on graphic design and illustration instead. She moved to Germany and started her career at Ogilvy & Mather Frankfurt, design department. There she has won many international awards including Cannes Lions, One Show, Eurobest, Epica, LIA, ADC Germany. Three times in a row she was selected to 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide from Lürzer's Archive Magazine.

Besides doing art direction for global brands, she loves to blend illustration and typography into artworks. Her art is based on everyday insights, problems and feelings. Sometimes also other people's insights, like Woody Allen's "Talent is luck. The important thing in life is courage.' She likes that.

Clients: Coca-Cola, KFC, Philips, ZMG, Rabobank, Ford, Mesut Oezil. Read Less
