anatomy of letters in a small signage workshop. This first contact led him
towards a BA in Graphic Design which he obtained in 2003 from the Faculty
of Fine Arts, Mersin University. Since then, he has worked as an art
director and freelance designer for a number of advertising agencies.

set for these new designs was basically acquiring a capacity to offer the

universities in Turkey. He still experiments with the anatomy of letters to
