HI, MY NAME IS MEHMET


I am an Industrial Product Designer based in San Francisco, U.S. I have taken a break from
my masters at the Umeå Institute of Design to gain work experience in the field abroad. I am
currently doing my first internship at Whipsaw and looking for my second internship. I am
passionate about innovation in design. I embrace collaborative approaches in problem-solving
disciplines that involve the proposition of new ideas, as well as critical thinking. I am hoping to
further my design career around this understanding.
