I am Bel! I am a Miami-based designer, currently working at Motorola Solutions, Innovation & Design team as a Sr. User Experience Designer.
I received my master's degree from Integrated Design of College for Creative Studies; and I hold an undergraduate degree in Industrial Design from METU, Turkey.
I believe that culture, inherent emotion and experience are closely interrelated for the design approach. I found my interest in user experience for health and wellbeing with an awareness of and sensitivity towards socio-cultural, emotional and technological contexts. What I like the most about being a designer is empathy, user-centered approach, and design thinking as a way of life rather than simply a profession. My works have been recognized in various international design competitions, such as IDSA IDEA, Core77, RSA and Sparks Awards.
In my spare time, I do spinning, meditate, collect/visualize my data, read, collect/send postcards, create healthy food recipes and travel.
