Hello! My name is Gizem, phonetically pronounced as "ghe-Zem". I am a communications designer currently living in New York City.
What I Do
I am originally from Turkey. After leaving my home country, I spent many years studying and working in Dubai, UAE. For the last three years, I have been in New York and have recently received my MFA in Communications Design.
I help brands and companies connect with others, and communicate with their audiences in an honest and open way. I'd like to think of myself as a designer with many interests as such in the last 8 years, I worked on many different projects in various different roles. Some of those roles include communications design, UX & UI design, illustration, graphic design, branding, animation, art direction, advertising, web design, photography, photo retouching, typography, sketching, printmaking as well as project management. Samples available upon request.
When I’m not designing, you can find me taking a walk around exploring the city for inspiration for both personal and professional work. I also find inspiration from gaming on my PlayStation, computer, and smartphone.
Want to work together? I’d love to hear from you.
Thank you for contacting me! It is so good to hear from you. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
