I am a flying design from Turkey with extensive experience in planning and executing development processes of new products and services. Following my passion to work in new contexts and settings, I have spent my career in different parts of the world, empathizing with different cultures and understanding their behaviors to design for a better, smarter, and more convenient world.
My main motivation for design is to create a positive social impact, something I’ve pursued in my career thus far. During the past year, I have worked at Happy Baby as the Lead Designer of a comfortable, low-cost, easily replicated baby carrier, which is now in the implementation phase in rural Uganda. I have been an active member of the open source innovation platform OpenIDEO with two winning concepts and besides I was awarded by INDEX: Design to Improve Life and UNICEF with previous school projects.
