Meet Özgür Gültekin
Hi, I’m a multidisciplinary designer based in Montreal, crafting digital experiences at the intersection of product and brand.
My approach combines my expertise in visual communication, design thinking methodology, and creative problem-solving based on analysis, data, and feedback.
Throughout my career, I have conceptualized, developed, and transformed digital products across multiple industries; from media and retail to education and gaming.
I strongly believe that the best digital experiences come from engaging multiple voices and perspectives. For this reason, I collaborate closely with researchers, engineers, product managers, owners and other stakeholders throughout the lifecycle of every project to meet high standards for usability and design.
As a Canadian with roots in Istanbul, Turkey — I navigate cultural differences gracefully and have a strong sense of empathy for people from all walks of life.
I see diversity —of opinions, expertise, backgrounds, personalities— as strength, and thrive in an environment of inclusive collaboration.
