Hi! I'm Duygu. I give an embarrassingly loud high-five to anyone who pronounces it right. I'm an Ankara-born Senior 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'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 firstname.lastname@example.org (portfolio upon quick ping).
