HI, I AM GÖKSU.
DELIGHTED TO MEET YOU!
Combining exceptional problem-dealing skills, honed to perfection in academia, with product design skills ranked in the top 1% of designers worldwide by Uxcel, I bring a new and fresh perspective to your product and design team.
I live to deal with problems. Whether it is a product problem, a puzzle, or a TV show scene that is hard to interpret hardly matters to me. Here is one of my favorite puzzles of all time:
"There are two pictures of a door. In the first picture, the door is closed. In the second picture, taken later, the door is open. Nobody opened the door. The door did not open itself. The door, in fact, did not open at all. What happened?" - Petscop 14 ↗
SOME CORE PRINCIPLES I FOLLOW
1. Always be kind to others. Always be kind and try to be of help to others. Even a few seconds of your time might immensely change someone's life or a product's fate.

3. No observer effect. When possible, enable your research participants to complete their tasks in isolation. Even your mere presence will introduce an observer effect.
4. The 3-P Design Process.
I follow this design process that I created and coined the name of. Learn more ↗
