Hi! I'm Güneş.

I am an interaction designer with a background in data and cognitive science, currently working for IDEO in London. 

Previously I worked for the health tech innovation team at Philips Design. My work is at the intersection of experience, interface and data design - I unpack complex problems to create engaging and meaningful concepts, prototypes and stories that bring future products and services to life. 

I am also the co-founder of binaryfutur.es - a research group on design futures and interactive experiences. Most recently, I helped design and run the Future Living IoT Lab in Amsterdam -  a unique innovation space for IKEA and Space10.
