This is who I am

I love what I do.
That's how I create great things!


I am a freelance designer and researcher based in southwest Turkey.

I like to resolve design problems, imagine useful interactions and create smart user interfaces.

Starting off as a Visual Communication Designer many years ago, the design world won me over early on. I have since been creating digital and physical products ranging from mobile applications to service design projects.

My interests in many different fields help me to stay curious, open and flexible. These attributes have been essential in the concepting of design solutions for various projects.

A key area of focus in my design process is the early research phase where I frame the problem as good as possible. This helps me create the appropriate interactions for each situation that will guide the user in their journey.

“We have been working with Ali Seckin for more than 5 years and his contribution to our business was extraordinary. Since we started to working with him, our sales have tripled and our brand became very well known among experience travellers. He is very cooperative and always comes up with new ideas to market our services. I would highly recommend him for any company who wants to see great results and return on their investment.”

“Ali Seckin is a great team player. As an agency working on digital and new media, we always need partners that we can trust, in order to create new products and deliver them to our clients. For the last 10 years, we have been working with him whenever we need extra help, from creating strategies to designing slick products. He always delivers on time/on budget and reflects his expertise into the project. In a highly saturated market of freelancers, he is a reliable partner for getting things done. ”
