My experience

7+ Years

Product Design

For the last six years, I’ve been working as a Digital Product Designer. I’ve helped create more than 20 digital products for over 30 million users.

30+ Workshops

Organized & Implemented

I’ve been conducting Design Thinking and UX Design workshops since my university days. I’ve trained everyone from middle-school students to C-suite executives.

7 Years

Basketball

I never had dreams of joining the NBA, but I still always have my game face on. Basketball taught me the value of being a team player—and having fun along the way.

My references

Nicolai Fleischhauer

UX Strategist
& Design Thinking Coach

I have worked with many designers throughout my journey, but my collaboration with Mert was a unique encounter that still stands out to this day. His equally broad and deep knowledge around product and UX paired with his ability to articulate design decisions convincingly to stakeholders was an invaluable asset to our team and made a lasting improvement on our ability to execute more confidently and with bigger business impact. Mert is a standout designer and would become an appreciated member of any product team.

His resolution and his ability to looking from different perspectives make him a very successful problem solver, and these are just a few of his high range skills. He has the motivational leadership ability, decision-making, and communication skills that a team member needs for success. I could always depend on him to set the best example as a Product Designer at KWORKS. He absolutely shines in a hectic environment. Definitely worth recommending.

It was a great experience working with Mert. I got to know him as a passionate, hard working and talented UX / UI designer. Moreover he brings the right blend of curiosity, broad field of knowledge and thirst to learn to take even greater responsibility.
