Hi, I'm Direnç!
A platform-agnostic designer with a broad range of skills and over 15 years of experience in brand, product design, and creative direction.
I helped global agencies, major brands, and small startups while bringing ideas and products to life with the same passion.
I love working among multidisciplinary teams, as well as establishing strong client relationships and making new technology human, meaningful and coherent.

// Recent experience
Contract / Sep 2022 – Nov 2022
I was contracted by Savills for the MySavills project - which I started working on while I was a Sr. Experience Designer at Inviqa. Working among a team of 12 developers, I designed various pages and user journeys for the Alpha release.
Working closely with stakeholders, UX researchers and developers, I was in charge of the pixel-perfect visual appearance of multiple projects from concept through delivery; maintaining NatWest’s design system, and creating user experiences that can be mapped directly to the business and user requirements.

Contract / Jan 2021 – Feb 2021
I helped the team build the UI components library for BNP Pariba’s analytics website; designed the page elements (components for both desktop & mobile) to be implemented to client's existing CMS.
I worked with Direnç during the design phase of a new Savills project in 2021. Direnç was a dream to work with – his ideas were excellent and original, and his designs were clean and professionally delivered. He worked tremendously quickly, to tight deadlines, and somehow always seemed relaxed! I would not hesitate to work with Direnç again – he’d be an asset to any team.
Sr Business Analyst at Savills
I had the pleasure of working with Direnç while he was at Inviqa. He is calm, collected and knows his stuff when it comes to experience design. Great affable personality too! He has a real passion for his job and gives you lots of well thought thorough ideas and options to choose from. I always looked forward to seeing what Direnç had turned our briefs into at the end of their retainer day with us.
