Özgür Gültekin

I'm a product designer in Montreal, crafting digital experiences.

My design attitude combines my expertise in visual communication, design thinking methodology, and creative problem-solving based on analysis, data, and feedback.

Throughout my career, I have conceptualized, developed, and transformed digital products across multiple industries; from media and retail to education and gaming.

Technical Approach

I strongly believe that the best digital experiences come from engaging multiple voices and perspectives. For this reason, I collaborate closely with researchers, engineers, product managers, owners and other stakeholders throughout the lifecycle of every project to meet high standards for usability and design.

Interpersonal Approach

As a Canadian with roots in Istanbul, Turkey — I navigate cultural differences gracefully and have a strong sense of empathy for people from all walks of life. I see diversity —of opinions, expertise, backgrounds, personalities— as strength, and thrive in an environment of inclusive collaboration.
