my story​​​​​​​
Looking back at my creative journey, I think I have come a fairly long way (literally, I moved approximately 1,800 miles from Istanbul to London).
I worked for the best local and global advertising agencies in Turkey, as well as TBWA\Media Arts Lab London. Focusing on tech communication in the last two years, I also have experience in art and cultural campaigns, banking and telecom.
I have won more than 40 awards, none of which were ghosts.
I worked at TBWA\Istanbul for 4.5 years (2014-2016, 2018, 2019 Creative Agency of Turkey) and promoted to the creative group head role in my last year.
In 2018, I received a job offer from TBWA\Media Arts Lab (2020 Creative Agency of the Year) to work only for Apple  and moved to London.
I started to work as a copywriter for Apple  in 2015 when I was in TBWA\Istanbul, and since then I took charge of the launches and advertising campaigns for the iPhone 6s, 7, XS, XR, 11, 11 Pro and SE. 
For the last 2 years, I was the sole copywriter responsible for all Apple  advertising in Turkey, including the Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. I also worked on several photography projects for the @apple Instagram account.

After contributing to one of the world’s top brands for a long time,   I have decided to make a change in my career. At the moment I’m open to new opportunities and looking forward to working for new clients and projects.
