I was born in Istanbul in 1958. I completed my High School education in American Robert College in 1977. I chose to study Fine Arts for University and graduated from Mimar Sinan University Güzel Sanatlar Akademisi, Yüksek Grafik Bölümü in 1982. I worked as a tutor and also in a private company ‘Gözetme’ to cover my education years in the university, and my expenses to buy film rolls to satisfy my hobby on photography.
I started my own job on design and ad service under the name ‘Nata Reklam Ajansı’ with an entrepreneur soul in 1983. I designed private stationery articles and calendar pages for Vakko. Then I developed my company and started to give below line and above line advertising services to companies like; Castrol, Türk Petrol, Kuveyt Türk, Hunca Kozmetik. I worked as a creative director in my own company for 8 years.
Then I switched to work as a professional again and I have been the manager in ‘Pamukbank Reklam ve Halkla İlişkiler Müdürlüğü’ and ‘Esbank Reklam ve Halkla İlişkiler Müdürlüğü’. In 1992-1993 I have been a creative Director and General Coordinator in Birleşik Tasarımcılar Grubu. I established my current ad company Ring Reklamcılık A.Ş. in 1994 and since then I have been serving the markets in such a wide range such as; automotive, real estate, iron, steel and fashion.
In 2003, I joined KAGİDER (Kadın Girişimciler Derneği) Women Entrepreneurs Association as a founder member and raised up to be the Vice Chairman of the Board for a few terms. Besides I am the member of Uluslararası Reklamcılık Derneği (IAA) and Grafikerler Meslek Kuruluşu. I have been awarded by Grafikerler Meslek Kuruluşu for my designs.
