🐐

Some say,
Gürkan has goatlike qualities;
-faithful,
determined,
likes to jump on stuff.

My journey started at TBWA\Heimat Berlin where I learned a lot about the professional approach to solving problems of the big brands. I’ve been given more responsibilities after I managed to show myself with my contribution to the creative process of Google Maps and by writing the main slogan of the pan-European FANTA campaign.

The knowledge and connections I acquired there, allowed me to work on many cool projects on a freelance basis, but mostly on running our own Berlin-based digital agency Godzillas where I experienced diverse roles such as Business Development and Sales Manager. As a result, we created a large network of happy clients around the world in a couple of years.

Joined to 4129Grey before the pandemic and stormed extraordinary projects with the fantastic SWAT team for brands like Mastercard and Socrates Magazine. I was lucky to contribute to my Creative Director Ahmet Terzioglu’s advertising podcast/blog Portfolio Stalker as a social stalker. 

For me, intuitional thinking and imagining the perfect end result is the key to solve problems. I can shift my thinking from tear-jerking drama to the most absurd entertaining ideas at a fast pace and provide a rich palette of perspectives on a single feature.

I strive to keep my values high, my curiosity sharp, and my creative punches tight. And I am always motivated to learn more.
