Hi, I'm Gizem

I am a multidisciplinary designer based in Austin, and I love crafting experiences that empower and engage users.

About ME

“To find ideas, find problems. To find problems, talk to people.”
— Julie Zhou

As a consultant, I work with clients to solve complex business challenges, and shape products by channeling the voice of the customers. Previous work ranges from enterprise platforms, responsive B2B/B2C sites, and web apps.

My process is customer-focused, transparent and collaborative. I am happiest when I am learning and improving. Recently, I completed the front-end degree through Udacity. In my [non-existent] free time, I foster animals, try new recipes and travel the world.
