TUBA OZKAN

I am a designer, creative technologist, and educator with a passion for designing interactive experiences and products. I am skilled in developing design concepts through production by using a range of tools and technologies. My background in architecture provides me with an aesthetic eye and a holistic approach to experience design. 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 and education. I am a flaneur deep down; getting lost in the city, observing commuters on the subway, sketching ideas, meeting with strangers at a park are my favorites.
