Hi! I'm a Service & Product Designer born in Eskisehir, currently based in London

I see the service design as a language. 
A form of communication that involves everyone and helps to solve problems and to create.

I believe that values are visible by looking at the problems from different people's perspectives. As a distinctive characteristic, I have a common sense that combines this skill with my professional life. I use active research skills and participatory design activities with people, communities, and industries from different backgrounds to gain valuable insights and to innovate. 

Within my works, design discipline is a form of communication between individuals and communities. Therefore, I use this tool to transform the interactions into supported and empowered communication forms and to create service and product design solutions.
