Art Director for Advertising


b. 1986, HK.


Hi, I am Alpay.

I am an Art Director, working in advertising and digital design in New York City. My expertise is Branding and Identity Design. I have always been in visual communication and design both in educational and professional life. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Design at Yeditepe University, Masters Degree in Visual Design at Politecnica Di Design and MFA degree in Design and Technology at Parsons. I have always somehow managed to work and study at the same time starting from 18 years old. Which I believe added a lot to my career. I am curious at all times, an observer and a person who has always been running after his dreams.

I live with my beautiful wife, Burcu and our lovely little girl Chloe. I am a huge Apple fan, enjoy watching TV, movies, listening to 80’s rock music and jogging in Central Park.

My personal motto is “Inspiration comes through knowledge”.
