Hi there,

I'm Özgür.

Born and raised in İstanbul, I initially pursued a path as a graphic designer in the Commodore 64 demo scene of the late ’90s. This experience would seed an evergreen joy of adding value through design.

Fast forward two decades, and I’ve now helped transform digital products through human-centered design across multiple industries, from media and retail to education and gaming.

My product design approach combines my design thinking expertise based on empathy, research, data analysis, testing, and feedback—exploring the interactive relationship between humans and machines.
