I’m Cagri, originally from Istanbul, now based in Los Angeles. I’ve had extensive experience working as a creative and art director on advertising and entertainment campaigns as well as helping brands with designing their identity.


Scroll down and check out some of the selected works I've done over the past couple of years.

CAPX helps busy finance executives match their financing needs with capital providers across the country, reducing their time spent and executing deals. I helped them design their brand look, and advised them through the creative process.

Client  Westmann & Wilson
Role  Graphic Designer, Art Director

Westmann & Wilson, a law firm with offices in California, Massachusetts, Turkey, Indonesia, China, services prestigious clients worldwide. For their re-brand request I've designed a minimalistic logo design using the strong shape of the letter “W”, but without actually showing the whole letter. I wanted to use the “W” as a unique design, showing two letters subtly and elegantly.

Client  Xbox
Role  Art Director

XBox were releasing their newest console, XBox One X, which had the strongest chip ever used in an XBox, with a 4k feature. I designed this print campaign to connect the console with the most powerful situations and imagery constrained in an X shaped layout.

Personal Project
Role  Typographer, Graphic Designer

I wanted to use my font Womby (that I released in 2017) to design some materials to show a few examples of what you can make with Womby. During my research, I came across some beautiful vintage matchboxes. I thought it would be fun to design some old-school matchboxes and try out my font with that. You can also download the font below.

Client  Coke
Role  Art Director

For Coke's 50th anniversary in Turkey, we partnered with the brand to remind ourselves how special and strong the Turkish way of optimism is. To illustrate this, we used those words in the language that represented this optimistic approach to life of the Turkish people.

Client  KARPAT
Role  Graphic Designer, Art Director,

In 2013, award-winning Turkish creative director Karpat Polat decided to step down as president and chief creative officer at DDB (Istanbul) and open his own advertising agency, using his first name for the new agency’s name: KARPAT. I designed the branding identity for this new agency using a unique color combination that would stand out from other advertising agencies.

Client  TEMA Foundation
Role  Art Director

The TEMA Foundation (Turkish Foundation for Combating Soil Erosion, for Reforestation and the Protection of Natural Habitats), a Turkish non-profit organization, was created in 1992.

The Foundation asked us to design a Christmas-themed gift card as a thank you to their contributing members. I designed a Christmas tree from recycled paper and a “how-to” guide to send to their members. Thousands of customers recieved these, and they are now for sale on a variety of online shopping websites.

Client  CNN Turk
Role  Art Director

Viewers don't like multiple commercial breaks while watching the news, and will often change the channel. CNN came to us to create a campaign to promote their plan to offer only two short commercial breaks (10-15 sec) during their newscasts. 

We presented the idea of very short breaks to viewers using this iconic images.
