About

I am a graphic designer and artist based in Istanbul, Turkey. Already during my graphic design studies at Marmara University, Faculty of Fine Arts, I have started working independently in my studio Birtakımşeyler that I have founded in 2010 with a friend and have been continuously working at until 2016. In my artistic works, a main focus lies on analog printing techniques, especially silkscreen printing, as well as conceptual works. Whereas my main work fields in graphic design are interface/web and editorial design, I am currently focusing on information mapping, as well as exhibition and environmental graphic design. Besides my freelance works, I have been working as lecturer at Marmara University Istanbul for four years, giving silkscreen printing classes to undergraduate students. An important part of my work represents research on a variety of fields, including anthropology and archeology, which I try to integrate into my work. My aim and source of enjoyment of work is developing myself, finding new approaches and learning new things.
