A few words from…
I am landscape architect & graphic designer
Born in Antioch in 1990. I’ve been living in Istanbul more than 10 years. Music and drawings have always been a big part of my whole family. Since my childhood period I was constantly drawing paintings, making collages and illustrations. In 2016, I graduated from Landscape Architecture in Istanbul Technical University. During my school period, I discovered the power of visual design and focused more on being a graphic expert with all my passion. I make photomanipulations, collages, illustrations and other graphic works almost everyday both as a freelancer and for my own pleasure. My motto is ‘When creativity and imagination find each other in one place, there is nothing else have chance against that power.’
After I graduated, I worked in conceptual designing teams in landscape architecture field in different companies. Then I decided to change my profession into more visual design and sound works. I worked in a digital advertising agency as an art director during 1 year. In March 2018, I created my own brand Studiorekk. Under my brand’s name, I produce works in my own humor on many topics related to visual and audio design. I have my own cartoon character in social media and digital platforms which is generated from my real face and I use him to communicate people online.
I am very passionate about transferring the most useful skills of graphic design tools for creative and inspirational minds.
