HELLO, MY NAME IS EKIN.

SHORT BIO

I am a graduate of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, where I received my Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design. I also hold a certificate in Art, Design, and Restoration from Istituto per l'Arte e il Restauro - Palazzo Spinelli, Florence, and an Art certificate from Wellington College - Berkshire, London.

My multi-cultural background includes solid education and experience in illustrating, logo design, producing marketing collateral for print and digital, UI/UX design, designing websites and page layouts, packaging design, and building a brand identity with strong typographical skills and attention to detail.

With proficiency in a broad range of design software applications — along with my ability to collaborate effectively with clients, peers, and management teams in a very fast-paced environment — I am a reliable, multitasking, and hard-working designer who loves sharing ideas and collaborates in a team environment, and works independently when needed.
