MY SERVICES

UX/ UI Design

User experience (abbreviated as UX) is how a person feels when interfacing with a system. The system could be a website, a web application or desktop software and, in modern contexts, is generally denoted by some form of human-computer interaction (HCI).

Mobile App Design

Despite a popular believe that designer’s job ends when you hand the designs to the development team, it’s just the opposite. Designer isn’t just responsible for the look and the feel of the product, but also for the interaction between the product and its users.

Web Design

Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization (SEO).

Corporate Branding

A corporate identity is important to any business or organization, regardless of size, mission and purpose. Your identity will define who you are and what you do to customers, partners and the public. It also sets you apart from your competition. An effective corporate identity will make you easily recognizable through your branding, actions and communications.

SOCIAL NETWORKS

PRE-WORD

I have been working in the various levels of creative fields of graphic design and print, collaborating with clients from various industries such as magazines, hot couture, studios, advertising agencies since 1998, in Istanbul and London. I have worked as a graphic designer and also art director for publishing industry. Then I have had the chance to start learning web design in 2005 and since 2006 doing web design as a freelancer. Since I moved to UK in April 2008, I’ve had chance to improve my web design skills and learn WordPress and then WordPress template developing which helped me to develop PHP and Javascript skills. Now, I can easily develop WordPress websites from scratch and also work on several other CMS modules and also e-commerce systems like Magento. My main interests are motorcycling, camping, photography, following creative and technology blogs and reading fantasy sci-fi novels.
