Howdy!
 I’m a designer from
Mersin, Turkey
 — currently moving pixels at YouTube in San Francisco, CA.

  Most recently, I’ve been reimagining the future of Live TV at YouTube TV — designing on web,
mobile
 and TV. My design focus consists of interaction design, system & visual design. I studied Graphic Design at MICA so my past work involves
print collaterals,
branding, typography,
3D,
 and motion design. 

  I love experimenting and learning professionally and in my personal life. In my free time, I like exploring the city with
my dog charlie,
 going to concerts or picnics with friends, picking up a new hobby like dj’ing, woodworking,
nail art,
 or relaxing in my room and staring at my plants.

Here* was co-created by Juliette Wang a few years ago. The product needed a major re-brand that represented the mission and the ideal user demographic more accurately. Since I had been seeking more visual design work, I joined Juliette to help revamp the brand, realign on the product goals and expectations and create a story and energy that reflects to the product and all of the marketing materials.
