TUBA OZKAN

I am a designer, architect and creative technologist with a strong passion for designing interactive experiences by bridging architecture and technology. My areas of expertise are interaction design, visual design, and spatial design. I am skilled in developing design concepts through production by using a range of tools and technologies. Creative and critical thinking are essential to my design process. My lifetime goal is to keep learning new things every day and reflecting this knowledge on people through my designs. I am a flaneur deep down; getting lost in the city, observing people on the subway, sketching ideas, meeting with people at a park are my favorites.  A "Cut-Up" version of my life is available here
