Let me introduce myself
Hi, my name is Gizem! I’m an illustrator and art director based out of Seattle, WA. Born and bred in Turkey, I spent most of my childhood daydreaming about creating things for a living one day as I doodled, played video games, and made my toys out of household items. I’m happy to say that what began as daydreams have become my reality.
I help brands and companies foster connections between people and products, communicating with their audiences in an empathetic, honest, and open way. Throughout my diverse career, I have developed the ability to appreciate other collaborators’ different perspectives and unique contributions. As a subject matter expert in providing creative direction, I can train and mentor other professionals, contribute to my industry knowledge to advance decision-making, and build brand equity with several entities.
My specialties include communication design, visual design, UX & UI design, product design, branding, art direction, advertising, web design, animation, illustration, and project management.
