Duygu Daniels, Sr. Designer & Strategist for Computer Vision Software

Hi! I'm Duygu. I give an embarrassingly loud high-five to anyone who pronounces it right. I'm an Ankara-born Interaction & Interface Designer from NYC mostly focusing on computer vision software. I think a lot about gen z, millennials and how to use creative technologies to build impactful platforms and experiences. I love humanizing the intimidating.

I'm currently living on campus at Stanford, as my luddite husband pursues a PhD in History. From artistic to commercial projects, excited to collaborate! Shoot me an email at duygu@killerwhal.es (portfolio upon quick ping).
