A few lines about me and what I have been up to

am a product designer with more than 7 years of international experience and a masters degree of Advanced Product Design from Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden.

 

As a curious designer, I am interested in the interrelationships between the needs of people, functionality and their emotional projection in our creative minds. I believe a good design can be achieved only by understanding the context of the world we live in.

 

I am a confident individual and also a strong team player who is keen on the details with a big picture perspective. Sketching is my obsession and I have an individual interest in storytelling, story boarding and animation techniques.

 

I have worked in Turkey, USA and Sweden in many diverse projects in all development phases of a product development process while experiencing different cultures. During these years I have had the chance to work with medical products, personal protection equipments, consumer lifestyle products, products for engineering, construction and surveying industries, consumer electronics, physical aid products, emerging technologies such as robotic applications, railway transportation and many others.

 

I had been part of product design team at Veryday (previously known Ergonomidesign) which has a 45+ years leadership in people-driven innovation in between January 2010 and June 2013. Veryday is one of the world’s top-ranking design and innovation consultancy. At Veryday, I was involved in many diverse projects ranging from big medical equipments, small medical products, hand tools, personal protection equipments to consumer electronics, lifestyle products and many others.

 

Since June 2013, I have been part of Atlas Copco Industrial Design Competence Center as a Senior Designer. Atlas Copco group serves customers with innovative compressors, vacuum solutions and air treatment systems, construction and mining equipment, power tools and assembly systems. Industrial Design Competence Center aims to create the best user experience by providing user research, product and interaction design as well as service design and branding for the whole Atlas Copco group.
