Aytur Şahinbay / Graphic Designer / Illustrator


Hello, my name is Aytur Şahinbay. I was born in 1986 in Bursa (Turkey).
I've started my design journey with wordless cartoons. After that my story started to shape it seld and it made me to look for creative works. I've tried to be active about some art and design works. So I've worked in big and small advertising agency as art director. I'm obsessed with installations and illustrations. And I'd like to take some pictures as multidirectional art director. I've got some prizes in national and international competitions. So some of my works got some place in mixed exhibitions. Through these achievements, I mentioned on many different communication magazines/portals.  I am working at an advertising agency now and I continue my work life as freelance designer. That's why I'd like to solve some estetic problems of firms, broadcaster companies, publishers and the people who needs personal designs. Also I'd like to focus and produce new ideas.
