About Me

I am experienced 10 years of working in the banking industry as a UX Designer and Mobile Product Analyst and skilled in mobile banking applications and UI/UX. Also, I develop mobile applications in IOS with Swift.

If you're looking for any of the following, I can help you with:
🚀 UX / UI design for Mobile Applications (iOS & Android)
🚀 Interaction design
🚀 Prototype creation

My Design Process

1️⃣ Initial Discussion (Let say hello 👋)
The foundation for our cooperation and is the first phase of our dialogue, that is the design process. We will define the requirements, timeline, budget and expectations for this project.

2️⃣ Research
The analysis of your competitors. Research helps understand you and your clients and develop a creative concept. Through research, we will understand better what your user needs, what you need, and how to implement it.

3️⃣ Main Page Design
All work starts from the main page - it is the key one. First comes an understanding of how the main page will look like, then the found visual solution is replicated on the internal pages.

4️⃣ Internal Pages Design
Now that we approved the main page, it's time to design all other pages.

5️⃣ Hand Off
The last step of the project. I deliver the all the source files need via Figma, so you and your team members easily understand & access them.

Client Testimonials

  • Furkan is a one of a kind person to work alongside. I have never met a designer (on upwork or in real life ) that I felt understood my needs and put the project first. He not only came up with idea's on his own but gave great feedback about mine. He helped design my app that went viral this past season, getting over 70k users in a single month. He is here to create a powerful partnership for anyone who needs a designer/partner. I cannot recommend Furkan enough. Thank you my friend for all of your hard work and hours you put into my project

  • Furkan is one of the best freelance designer I have ever worked with. He does work in timely manner with so impressive designs. He helped us with UX and prototyping and wireframing. He always does more than he was asked. Even after contract completion, he always help us with any small changes. It is pleasure to work with him and I recommend him for any kind of designing work.
