I have a bachelor degree at “Industrial Product Design” from Istanbul Technical University. I learnt the basics of design and engineering and graduated with good grades. After the graduation I spent 2 years on working as a product designer in well-known companies in Istanbul. Right before I start my master program, I worked in Jacob Jensen Design and designed Product Design Manual for the ECCO, Danish shoe company. I enrolled the master program called Formgiving Intelligence at Konstfack, Stockholm. It was a brilliant program designed to teach combination of theory and practice where they can co-exist together. I learn how to make intellectual decisions on my process and enhance my hands-on design approach with clever decision-making skills. During my studies I won the first prize on a concept design competition of a glass manufacturer and they have produced 5 of my products with the concept I created. Also I won the “Innovation Think Tank” international design competition organized by Siemens and spent 3 months in Siemens Healthcare in Germany as a part of an innovation team. Right after I graduate, I started a design consultancy called "HUE Studio” with my friends. We have launched couple of products and involved on various design projects for startups.

My skills are balanced between technical and artistic disciplines. I love both and try to find the perfect spot where I can relate them both. I am open-minded, fast learner and disciplined person with great adaptation skills. I love new challenges; it is my primary motivation source.

Right now I am eager to find new challenges in life.
