This is a short version of my story - yet.
As an artist and a creator, I take producing music and designing interfaces as a way of living.
Started making music in 2006 as an amateur beatmaker, made one or two instrumental albums back in the day with a friend from school. Never stopped making beats. Then, started using Grains as my stage name and put my music out there.
Studied Visual Arts and Communication Design. Designed a corporate identity of Grains and designed a typeface to express Grains’ music, called Grains Type. As a challenge, made an Arduino-powered touch-to-play music album by using only conductive paint on paper and copper tape.
As I began to understand the possibilities that could be done with Arduino and Raspberry Pi, I wanted to get closer to coding world. Started working here as a researcher and got whatever I can get from these eager-to-teach, beautiful friends there, Selçuk Artut, Alp Tuğan, Kerim Atay and Murat Durusoy. Have worked on a couple of projects such as these. These people gave me a little tutorial about the real life, kudos to that.
When it was time to move forward, started working here, actually I had worked there as an intern before, but its name was Pozitron. When I came back as a full time user interface designer, it was already acquired by Monitise. As you can see on Crunchbase, it got acquired again by Fiserv. Funny right? I have changed three different companies sitting on the same chair. Oh, make that four - we are now called Commencis.
As a user interface designer for web and mobile applications, I have worked with companies like Zubizu, Mobilet, İş Bankası and Faida. While these were happening, I always challenged myself in user experience design.
As I have said, this is a short version of my story. If you are curious, feel free to holla at me here for a cup of coffee or just a chat.
