About

Live from the stage/my workspace
 

Hello! I'm Veli.

A Turkish designer with a passion for visual storytelling, data visualization and hand drawn illustration. I’m professionally trained in art, archeology and advertising, so it’s probably not surprising that I genuinely love making things.
 
After beginning my creative career at Goodby Silverstein and working as an Art Director in San Francisco, I took a job at Duarte, a niche Silicon Valley design firm dedicated to helping top brands and notable TED speakers tell their stories—and change the world.
 
At Duarte, I got to nurture my passion for illustration, by developing the company-wide standards for storyboarding. This experience sparked the idea for an illustration-based personal project that I’m currently developing with my copywriter wife.
