Istanbul meet-up:

Announcing soon!
June 4, 2024

Meet Salih, your Istanbul host!

Hey there! I'm Salih (he/him), a designer fueled by an unwavering passion for creativity in all its forms. I strive to constantly improve and reflect on my work, furthermore I am always up for new challenges. I love cafe-hopping, visiting galleries and taking candid photos of streets during my work days. Now, as a city host for The Design Kids in Istanbul, I'm on a mission to bridge the gap between aspiring designers, experienced professionals, and the entire spectrum of creative souls in our vibrant city. Whether you're a design student, an industry pro, or just curious, let's connect, share experiences, and strengthen our design community. #TDKtuesdays
