A few words from…
I am an illustrator, graphic designer, animator
I double majored Visual Communication Design, with a main major in English Language and Literature which I think feeds my art and design process. I love working with weird vibrant colors and having a textury feel in my illustration work.
Though I define myself multi-disciplinary and love to work on and learn about new fields, I mostly do branding, graphic design, illustration and animation.
I worked with clients such as Sakıp Sabancı Museum, Plutote, Growth Vikings, Cello Society
As you can see, I love my job, and I’m happy to share my knowledge. See you soon.
