One of the greatest challenges in art and design is to articulate abstract visual ideas into meaningful and tangible concepts.
As an instructor I focus on the following foundational questions: How can we best explain the significance of space that does not exist in a two-dimensional composition? How can we make sense of visual actions like motion when dealing with physically immobile compositions?
After graduating from Purdue University in 2009, I began teaching at Sabancı University in Istanbul. Since then I have developed several course syllabi for introduction and advanced level typography courses as well as illustration and studio design courses. In addition to my classes at Sabancı University, I regularly hold workshops at institutions and conferences both in Turkey and abroad. The video at bottom-left offers a brief overview of the Volcano Type design workshop that I gave with Peter Brugger in November 2015.
