HELLO,

I am Fahri Özkaramanlı, a visual communication designer living in İstanbul, interested in exploring the interrelation between people and technology through design.

I have Co-Founded and led the design for 6 years at Parasut.com, an online book keeping application in pursuit of helping Turkish SMEs leverage technology to better understand and control their financial operations.Check out http://parasut.com for more information in Turkish.

I have also been working on detecting and analyzing patterns to streamline processes in creative workflows. The following self initiated projects are a result of this endeavour;

WORDMARK.IT

Wordmark.it is my most popular project within this context. It is an online tool to help people choose fonts for their projects. It is fast, efficient and productive.Try it at http://wordmark.it

CEDVEL

Cedvel is an application for designing grid systems. It aims to ease the grid design process and enable people to explore different alternatives rather than relying on conventional structures.Test it at http://cedvel.com

I have BA and MFA degrees in Visual Communication Design from İstanbul Bilgi University where I also taught Web Design and various other courses for seven years.

I practice and teach a combination of Human Centered and Business Driven design.
