Hi, I am Alpay.
I opened my eyes in Istanbul in 1978. Over the years, I had experiences in advertising and design agencies working for a variety of business fields, and had the privilege working in several different countries.
I continued my career in big and small sized agencies after my internship at Ogilvy during my high school summer break. After a four year BFA Graphic Design degree, between 2003-2006, I have worked at Leo Burnett and Young&Rubicam Istanbul as a Jr. and then Art Director. I have won several domestic and international advertising awards including Cannes Young Creatives and CopyBreak Grand Prix. I am an underwater rugby player and a movie lover.
I came to New York City in 2007 as a Parsons MFA Design and Technology student and assistant to the department. After my graduation, I have worked for 2 years for several design and ad agencies in NYC such as Lippincott and Porter Novelli as a freelance Art Director. In 2010, I have moved to Istanbul to start my own boutique design agency AG Design. For eight years, I have served several clients and designed and produced print and digital projects under AG Design. In 2018, I moved back to New York City and continuing designing as an Art Director / Designer.
