This is gonna be crazy!

Dear friends, I will try to do another crazy thing that nobody has ever tried before. I will jump from a plane and design a logo project during free fall with 200 Km/h speed. 4 cameras will record every second and i will upload a video here soon. Till then, “Totsiens”: Goodbye in Afrikaans!

Sevgili dostlar, d羹nyada bir ilki deniyorum. U癟aktan atlay覺p 200 kilometre h覺zla serbest d羹羹 esnas覺nda bir logo tasarlamaya 癟al覺aca覺m. 4 kamera bu anlar覺 saniye saniye g繹r羹nt羹l羹yor olacak. G繹r羹nt羹leri kullanarak oluturaca覺m video gelene dek, “Totsiens”: Afrikaans dilinde “ho癟a kal覺n!”

Cape Town

Designer on the road spent 1 month in Cape Town and worked 2 advertising agencies for the beginning of his 3rd route. Cape Town is an amazing place. Its natural beauties, delicious foods and easy to live in terms of prices and traffic makes this place one of my top 3 places in the world.

襤te Cape Town’da ge癟en g羹nlerden g繹r羹nt羹ler. Bol bol dans, elence, parti, rak覺, penguen ve doa harikalar覺yla ge癟en g羹nlerden sonra yava yava Arjantin’e doru yola 癟覺kman覺n vakti geliyor.

Now Boarding is now boarding with DOTR

Designer on the road is in Now Boarding digital advertising and design agency located in Cape Town, South Africa. Well I am gonna miss these guys from Now Boarding. Thanks to them for lovely house, showing me around and giving me nice projects.

Designer on the road 3. rotas覺n覺n ilk dura覺 olan Cape Town’da 2 farkl覺 ajansta 癟al覺t覺. Bunlardan ilki olan Now Boarding’den g繹r羹nt羹ler ite burada. Now Boarding’e beni sada solda gezdirdikleri i癟in, g羹zel bir ev tuttuklar覺 i癟in ve g羹zel iler verdikleri i癟in de ayr覺ca teekk羹r ederim.

Arctic Circle

I had a breakfast and left my house to move to the next one. Next two weeks I will be working for Arctic Circle, so they booked me another place which is closer to the office area.

Son bir kahvalt覺 edip g羹zel evimden ayr覺l覺yorum. n羹m羹zdeki 2 hafta Arctic Circle i癟in 癟al覺aca覺m ve ajans bana o 癟evrede baka bir yer tutmu.

This is my new place. At first they took me a place where 10 people sleeping in the same room on bunk beds. It was like a military camp. Then I asked to my new boss Reghard about: Did you see the place you booked for me? He said: No, is it nice? And I said: NO. So they changed it and here I am. This is the guest house I will stay for next two weeks.

nce beni iren癟 bir yere g繹t羹rd羹ler. Ranzalarla dolu onlarca kiinin ayn覺 odada uyuduu askeri kamp gibi bir yerdi. Ajansa d繹n羹nce patronum Reghard’a bana tuttuunuz yeri sen g繹rd羹n m羹 diye sordum. O da, hay覺r, g羹zel mi diye sordu? Ben de hay覺r dedim ve durumu anlatt覺m. B繹yle olduunu bilmiyordum diyerek bana baka bir yer ayarlad覺lar ve ite fotorafta g繹rd羹羹n羹z yer 繹n羹m羹zdeki 2 hafta konaklayaca覺m misafirevi.

This is my room. Not fancy as the old one but it’s ok. At least I have my own room.

Buras覺 da odam. Tamam eskisi kadar haval覺 deil belki ama en az覺ndan kendi odam var. Sorun yok.

Bathroom.

Banyo.

Next day I woke up. Stick a Designer on the road sticker to the top of my door and moved to my new work.

Bir sonraki g羹n al覺t覺覺m odada deil yeni bir yerde a癟覺yorum g繹zlerimi. Bir Designer on the road kart覺 癟覺kar覺yorum c羹zdan覺mdan ve kap覺m覺n 羹st羹ne yap覺t覺r覺p ie doru yola 癟覺k覺yorum.

This is the parking lot of Arctic Circle. I climb the stairs and here I am in the new office. New friends to work with and new works to do…

Buras覺 da Arctic Circle’覺n otopark覺. Merdivenleri 癟覺k覺yorum ve yeni iler yapaca覺m覺z yeni arkadalar覺mla tan覺覺yorum.

I gave small Mevlana figures and magnets to people here. They are happy to know about it.

Buradaki arkadalara Mevlana fig羹rleri ve magnetleri hediye ettim. Sevindiler.Mevlanay覺tan覺maktan da ayr覺 bir mutlu oldular.

What other thing I am gonna do in here is giving them “Mesir macunu” which is a kind of Tukish paste to improve sexual power :) and raki as a drink. Let’s see what happens when I combine these two Turkish tastes.

Cuma g羹n羹 buray覺 mesir macunu ve rak覺 ile u癟urmay覺 planl覺yorum. Bu ikisini birletirince ajansta bakal覺m neler olacak.

This is the place I’m working in. You see Nelson here with Turkish fez.

Ortam buras覺. Bir ka癟 odac覺k daha var ama ana alan bu. Fesli zenci ilgin癟 oluyormu :)

Here is the Punch bag of this office. Punch bag is getting to be a standart equipment for every agency in the world. Everybody has one.

Bu da ajans覺n kum torbas覺. Art覺k ajanslarda sarkan bu kum torbalar覺ndan g繹rmek benim i癟in olaan bir ey haline geldi. Bizim meslein gerekli bir ekipman覺 haline gelen bu kum torbalar覺n覺 d羹nyan覺n her yerinden bir 癟ok ajansta g繹rmek m羹mk羹n.

Meeting table and client list on the wall.

Ayr覺 bir toplant覺 odas覺 d覺覺nda bir de b繹yle ikinci bir masa var toplanmak i癟in. Duvarda m羹terilerin logolar覺 yer al覺yor.

This is my desk. I’m working on a client named AFB. It’s a kind of company where you can take loan.AFB is a consumer finance business that specializes in the provision of credit products to consumers.

Buras覺 da masam. Burada AFB adl覺 yeni bir m羹teri i癟in 癟al覺覺yorum. AFB kredi 癟ekebileceiniz bir irket. Doru planlamayla kullan覺ld覺覺nda kredilerin Afrika’y覺 olumlu y繹nde deitirebileceini d羹羹nen bir irket.

And here we are in the kitchen on a Friday evening. After a long time it’s good to have fish and raki in South Africa. Reminded me a lot about Turkey. Raising my glass to all friends in Turkey.

Bug羹n羹 harika k覺lan iki ey var. Birincisi cuma olmas覺, ikincisi ise ajansta rak覺 bal覺k yap覺yor olmam覺z. Uzun s羹reden sonra rak覺 bal覺k yap覺p T羹rkiye’deki dostlar覺 hat覺rlay覺p Afrika’da efkarlan覺yorum.

Popcorn is not a good mix with raki.

Rak覺yla patlam覺 m覺s覺r olmaz dedim ama dinletemedim.

This is Helene. The only copywriter of the agency. So she is really busy. She settles herself with raki here. :)

Helene ajans覺n u an tek metin yazar覺. O y羹zden de biraz yorucu bir temposu var. Ama ie g羹ce ara verip rak覺yla rahatl覺yor.

They like the glasses and the design of the bottle. When it comes to taste they think it’s something strange and new. I think it’s hard for them to get used to it because they usually drink wine. However they still liked it. As I heard before some of them said it tastes like Sambuca.

ieye bay覺ld覺lar, bardaklar覺 sevdiler ve tada gelince genelde diyebildikleri ey farkl覺, ilgin癟, deiik gibi eyler oldu. Ama beenmiler. Bana sorarsan覺z devaml覺 arap i癟en insanlar olarak bu ekilde tepki vermeleri 癟ok normal. Rak覺n覺n tad覺 onlar i癟in 癟ok yeni ve al覺malar覺 biraz zaman al覺yor. Mesela Strateji b繹l羹m羹nden Stephan yeni tan覺t覺覺 bu T羹rk i癟kisini imdiden 癟ok sevdi.

I thought maybe we move to somewhere else from here but first we had to finish some works. Everybody got their glasses and kept on drinking while working. Should check things twice before print out :)

Haz覺r g羹nlerden cumayken belki buradan 癟覺kar baka bir yerlere akar覺z diye d羹羹n羹rken m羹teri s覺k覺t覺rmalar覺 ve son anda patlayan revizyonlar y羹z羹nden herkes barda覺n覺 al覺p masas覺na d繹nd羹.

Karima

Karima is the new project of mine. It’s about creating a new brand from zero. First we think about the brand andstrategicallydecide on its personality . It’s a software development and company. They are proud of being South African and they want to be the leader in technology.

Karima, Nowboarding i癟in yapt覺覺m bir kurumsal kimlik 癟al覺mas覺. Bir IT ve yaz覺l覺m gelitirme irketi olan Karima i癟in 繹ncelikle marka yap覺s覺n覺 ve karakterini tart覺覺yoruz. Rakipleri neler yap覺yor nas覺l iletiim kuruyor hangi renkleri kullan覺yor, Karima’n覺n fark覺 ne bunlar覺 d羹羹n羹yoruz. Sonras覺nda da tasar覺m s羹recine bal覺yorum.

My first idea was using brackets and punctuations to write KARIMA name and have a logo type that way. Because these guys are mostly programmers and what they do is coding. You know coding is all about this punctuations and brackets. Since they are living in this world I thought it may be a good idea. However I didn’t like it much. There was something missing. I tried many variations to make it more readable. But the more I make it readable, the more it becomes like a normal type. It started to look like a font instead of coding signs. So changed my mind and move on to second stage.

Karima bir yaz覺l覺m gelitirme irketi. Yaz覺l覺m gelitirmek ise programlama ile olan bir ey. Bu adamlar b羹t羹n g羹n kodlarla kapl覺 ekranlara bakan programc覺lar. B繹yle bir d羹nyada yaad覺klar覺 i癟in de programlama d羹nyas覺nda devaml覺 kullan覺lan parantezler ve noktalama iaretleriyle KARIMA yazmay覺 denemek ve bu ekilde bir logotype elde etmek istedim. 襤stedim ama bir t羹rl羹 tatmin olamad覺m. Hep bir eyler eksikti. Hem kod gibi g繹r羹ns羹n hem de okunsun istiyordum. Sorun u ki kodlama gibi g繹r羹nd羹羹nde logo okunmuyordu. Okunur hale getirdiimde ise bir koddan ziyade normal bir fonta benzemeye bal覺yordu ve 繹zelliini yitiriyordu. Bir 癟ok farkl覺 denemeden sonra daha farkl覺 bir 癟繹z羹m buldum.

My solution was to write Karima with full ofpunctuations no matter how readable it is. I decided to use it as a symbol. Then I added a small Karima type to logo. That’s better then the first try. Then I thought this logo can be useable with only K letter. 2 different ways to use depending on space you have. In terms of social media, they can go with the small one if you ask me. It becomes something useable. I liked that. Then I wanted to try different things instead of coding world.

繹z羹m羹m ilk bak覺ta okunmayacak dahi de olsa noktalama iaretleriyle Karima yazmak ve Karima yaz覺s覺n覺 da logoyla birlikte tutmakt覺. B繹ylece bu logo ortaya 癟覺kt覺. 2 farkl覺 kullan覺m覺 da olan bu logodan sonra bu d羹nyadan uzakla覺p daha farkl覺 eyler de denemek istedim.

Then I remembered the very first computers. The ones which were working with cards to describe 0 and 1. Since all the datas arebasicallyzeros and ones. I wanted to create a logo whichsymbolizesthis computer generated world. It’s like ons and offs. It’s like zeros and ones. It’s like pixels. When I created the K, I colored it just the way South African flag is. Because they are proud to be South African and they could be happy to show it in their logo. I also added a thin line before the K letter as a cursor just like in the computer world. A cursor ready to type codes. It also helped me to polish that flag feeling I have for the logo.

Daha sonra ilk bilgisayarlar akl覺ma geldi. Hane 羹zerinde delikler olan kartlarla 癟al覺an oda b羹y羹kl羹羹ndeki bilgisayarlar. O delikler birleri ve s覺f覺rlar覺 ifade ediyordu ve bilgisayar buna g繹re 癟al覺覺yordu. Bug羹n de deimeyen tek ey yaratt覺覺m覺z t羹m bu bilgilerin hala s覺f覺rlar ve birlerden olumas覺. Ben de t覺pk覺 o kartlar gibi ya da birler ve s覺f覺rlar gibi bir logo yaratmak istedim. K harfini kapal覺 ve a癟覺k bloklar (kartlar) eklinde tasarlamam覺n nedeni buydu. M羹terimiz G羹ney Afrikal覺 olmas覺yla 繹v羹nd羹羹 i癟in ve bunu logoda g繹rmek istedii i癟in K harfini oluturan pixel g繹r羹n羹ml羹 bu bloklar覺 G羹ney Afrika bayra覺 renkleriyle bezedim. K’nin 繹n羹ndeki 癟izginin ise iki anlam覺 var. Biri kodlama yaparken kulland覺覺m覺z imle癟. Dieri ise G羹ney Afrika bayra覺n覺n ba覺ndaki siyah k覺sm覺.

After that I came up with a pixelate world like colorful pixels creating a dialoge box which is saying K and becomes a logo.I thought we can use this pixelate world in many places on branding. For the website and even in the print works. It can help us a lot to make things look cool and useable as well.

Sonra daha piksellemi d羹nyalara doru yelken a癟t覺m. Bloklardan oluan K ve bu pikselli K benim en sevdiklerim oldu diyebilirim. Oluturulan motif ise yine markan覺n bir 癟ok yerde kullanabilecei iyi bir 繹e.

Then I wanted to make a motif with the letters of Karima. Just like the famous logo of our coffee brand “Kuru Kahveci Mehmet Efendi”. Then I also colored it with the colors of South African flag. It looked cool though. But it didn’t look right. This logo gives me a feeling like a trendy and expensive clothing brand. There is nothing much here about software development and programming.

Sonras覺nda denediim ey ise bizim 羹nl羹 “Kuru Kahveci Mehmet Efendi” logosu gibi Karima harflerini kullanarak bir ekil oluturmakt覺. Ortaya 癟覺kan ilgin癟 logo houma gitmedi deil asl覺na bakarsan覺z haval覺 bir ey oldu ama kesinlikle bu m羹teri i癟in bir ey olmad覺. Bu logo bana daha 癟ok haval覺 ve pahal覺 bir giyim ya da 癟anta markas覺 gibi geliyor. Yaz覺l覺m gelitirmekle ya da IT irketi olmakla hi癟 bir balant覺 kurmuyor. O y羹zden bunu da eliyor ama her eye ramen burada yay覺nlamak istiyorum.

Anatoli restaurant

Uuuu I love old Alfa Romeo’s a lot and I found a car dealer full of these wonderful machines. I am sure they have tons of problems but they still look sexy.

Wa, bu eski Alfa’lar覺n hastas覺y覺m. ok problemli ara癟lar olduklar覺 ise bir ger癟ek. Hele bu eski modellerin kesin y羹zlerce sorunu vard覺r ama hala 癟ok seksiler.

African trees against new skyscrapers.

Baz覺 aa癟lar resmen ehrin ortas覺nda jungle havas覺 yarat覺yor.

It’s a beautiful day to have a walk today. These are more commercial places of Cape Town.

Y羹r羹y羹 yapmak i癟in harika bir g羹n.

And look what I found at evening time just passing by Napier street. It’s a Turkish restaurant in Cape Town named Anatoli. I stepped in and met with the owner Mr. Tayfun Aras.

Napier soka覺ndan ge癟erken bir de ne g繹reyim. Cape Town’da bir T羹rk restoran覺. Tabi ki i癟eri girip bir bakmak istedim. Mekan覺n sahibi Tayfun bey 癟ok g羹ler y羹zl羹 biri.

Restaurant is covered with lots of Turkish stuff.

Her yerde T羹rkiye’den eyalar ve k羹lt羹rel malzemeler var.

Food is super nice. They have Turkish breakfast, kebabs and even rak覺 and lots of meze here. I told about my story to Mr. Aras. He is amazed with my adventures and he ordered a free dinner to me. It was good to eat nice Turkish food after a long time with somebody speaking Turkish here in Africa. After dinner we also had a glass of raki together and he told me his story too.

Yemekler harikal覺. Poa癟a, sigara b繹rei, simit, g繹zleme, 癟ay, kebaplar hatta rak覺 ve her t羹r meze bile var burada. Tayfun abiye hikayemi anlatt覺覺mda 癟ok etkilendi ve beni daha 癟ok dinlemek istedi. Bana g羹zel bir akam yemei 覺smarlad覺. Yemekten sonra da birer kadeh rak覺 i癟ip muhabbet ettik. Uzun s羹reden sonra Afrika’da T羹rk yemei yiyordum, T羹rk癟e konuuyor, bir T羹rk ile rak覺 i癟iyordum. ok hotu ger癟ekten. Tayfun abinin hikayesi de gayet ilgin癟.

Mr. Aras was working in Marmaris Turkey and selling Turkish carpets to mostly foreigners. Her wife was came to his shop years ago and bought a carpet from him. That’s how they met for the first time. Then lots of things happened but I can’t write the whole story here. But it’s quite interesting. If you pass by the Napier street, just get in and say hello from me. He will be happy :) During their marriage Tayfun and his wife lived in Turkey and South Africa depending on time and their needs. Now he is here in Cape Town and have this nice restaurant. I am happy to meet with him and listen these kind of interesting life stories. For the free Turkish dinner and the things you told me about life thanks a lot Tayfun abi..

Tayfun abi Marmaris’te T羹rk hal覺s覺 satan bir esnafm覺. Ei zaman覺nda ondan gelip hal覺 alm覺 bir G羹neyAfrikal覺. Evlilikleri boyunca zaman zaman T羹rkiye’de zaman zaman G羹ney Afrika’da yaamay覺 tercih etmiler. imdi Tayfun abi burada. Cape Town’da ya覺yor ve bu restoran覺n sahibi. Yolunuz d羹erse uramadan ge癟meyin derim. Benden de selam s繹yleyin kendisine. Sevgiler Tayfun abi. Yemek i癟in teekk羹rler.

A tour in Cape Town

When I was walking in Long street I saw these African clothes and I thought they look like really comfortable. I should buy one and use in the house like a night wear. :) However they were quite expensive in Long street. That’s normal cause it’s a popular touristic area. maybe I should check for them somewhere else.

Long street’de y羹r羹rken bir d羹kkanda bu G羹ney Afrika geleneksel k覺yafetlerini g繹rd羹m. ok rahat g繹r羹n羹yorlar. Bunlardan bir tane edinip evde geceleri giyebilirim. 襤yi fikir iyi. Ama pahal覺lar. Baka yerde bakmak laz覺m.

This is myneighbor’s bike. I hear him everytime he moves somewhere. :) Right picture is where I fixed my camera’s lens. I dropped it from the tripod. Clips for attaching lens to camera just broken. Luckly this shop had the same part and changed it with a new one for 400 rands. It’s ok now, keep taking pictures.

Sol fotoraf komumun motoru. Bir Harley. Ne zaman evden 癟覺ksa haberim oluyor sesi sayesinde. Sa fotoraf ise fotoraf makinemi d羹羹rd羹羹mde k覺r覺lan lens par癟as覺n覺 yenisiyle deitiren yer. 400 rand 羹cret ald覺lar ama yeni bir lens almaktan beni kurtarm覺 oldular. Ucuz y覺rtt覺k.

This huge bar located in Long street. Look at the huge graffiti it has…

Oraya buraya sticker yap覺t覺r覺yorum, g繹renler ne diyor acaba, tey allah覺m.

This is Bombay bicycle club. I liked the idea of swings.

Buras覺 da Bombay bicycle club. Sal覺ncak fikrini sevdim.

You can see what I ate here at right picture. It was too big and I couldn’t finish it though no matter how delicious it was.

Sa fotoraf burada yediim yemek. G羹zeldi ama fazla b羹y羹kt羹, ye ye bitmiyor arkada. O tabak g繹r羹nd羹羹 gibi deil baya derin. Biraz覺n覺 b覺rakt覺m ne yapay覺m.

After the old golfs, these old Mercedes are the most popular cars of Cape Town. You will see a lot of them if you come here.Surprisinglythey mostly look like very new and nice. No scratches or hits.

Eski golflerden sonra buran覺n en pop羹ler bir dier arac覺 da bu eski Mercedesler. Buraya gelirseniz bunlardan 癟ok fazla g繹receksiniz. a覺rt覺c覺d覺r 癟ou gayet yeni ve temiz g繹r羹n羹yor.

There is a huge gap between poor and rich in Cape Town. That’s why there are some security issues in some areas. Rich people have everything and poor people have nothing at all. That brings the problems. By the way having a parking zone at the top of buildings is a great idea.

Cape Town’da zengin 癟ok zenginken fakir inan覺lmaz bir fakirlik i癟inde. Zaten bana sorarsan覺z Cape Town’un baz覺 yerlerindeki g羹venlik sorunlar覺n覺n ana nedeni bu fark. Bu arada kot fark覺 olan apartmanlar覺n 癟at覺lar覺n覺 otopark olarak tasarlamak 癟ok mant覺kl覺 bir ey. 襤stanbul’daki mimarlara sesleniyorum. Bak覺n覺z.

You can see any kind of car here in Cape Town. Even in South Africa taxes aren’t as high as Turkey. Besides, Cape Town is a very car friendly place. No killer traffic jams or parking problems here. Even the old models are all looking in good shape. Just like a new baby.

Cape Town araba dostu bir ehir. Trafik s覺k覺覺kl覺klar覺, park sorunlar覺 yok denecek kadar az diyebilirim. Dier yandan eski arabalar ve klasikler bile burada yepyeni ve tertemiz g繹r羹n羹yor.

R8 and tt together. This is something you don’t see everyday.

Her g羹n g繹rmediimiz bir sahne. R8 ve TT yanyana.

BMW 3.30 is just a Taxi here. :)

3.30 ‘dan taksi yapm覺lar. O benzin masraf覺yla nas覺l kar ediyor merak ediyorum. Muhtemelen tarife fark覺 vard覺r.

There is one thing rich people really enjoy to do in Cape Town. Creating interestinglimousines with different cars. Right picture is a barber. Nice and clean for a barber shop. I put it here as an example for Turkish hair designers :)

Cape Town’da zenginlerin yapmaktan zevk ald覺覺 bir dier ortak ey de deiik deiik arabalar覺 limuzin haline getirmek. Sada ise bir berber g繹r羹yorsunuz. Bizim T羹rk sa癟 tasar覺mc覺lar覺na 繹rnek olsun diye eklemek istedim. Bir berber i癟in ne kadar cesur ve 覺k bir kurumsal.

Die Antwoord

This is an interesting South African band. They are quite popular here. Actually they moved to U.S to make some bigger projects there but when I first saw their videos. I said what the hell is that? Quite different style though. Good to share here.Its lead vocalists are Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er. They are not married but living together and have a child maybe two, I’m not sure. You will see them in their videos as well. Here are the videos.

Biraz da G羹ney Afrika m羹ziinden bahsedelim. Tamam bu pek geleneksel m羹zik anlay覺覺na uymayacak ama Die Antwoord belki de buradan 癟覺kan en 癟覺lg覺n grup olabilir. 襤lk g繹rd羹羹mde bu ne karde dememe yol a癟an acayip videolar覺n覺 da sizlerle paylamak istedim. Bu arada Bu ikili ayn覺 zamanda sevgililer hatta evlilik d覺覺 癟ocuklar覺 da var. Kliplerde zaten hep kendileri ve 癟ocuklar覺n覺 g繹receksiniz.

S. African Rand

South Africa is using a currency named Rand. In terms of design, Rands are also interesting to have a look at. Instead of leaders or faces of important people, you see animals in African rands. They also have 200 rand which comes with a leopard picture on it however I don’t have it. Reverse of each banknote has also zebras or cows.

G羹ney Afrika Rand’覺 羹lke liderleri ya da 繹nemli tarihi yap覺lar yerine hayvan fig羹rleri bar覺nd覺r覺yor. 1 rand : 21 kuru ediyor. Paralar覺n tasar覺mlar覺 ilgi 癟ekici. Bende olmayan bir de 200 rand banknotu var. Onda ise Leopar resmi bulunmakta. Banknotlar覺n arkalar覺nda da yine zebra, inek gibi fig羹rler var.

Now Boarding website

This is the website I re-designed for Nowboarding. A design studio located in Cape Town. Its based on keywords with html5 animated airport sign looking typography.

Now Boarding i癟in tasarlad覺覺m web sitesi. Eski siteleri flash destekliydi ve tasar覺mda bir tak覺m hatalar覺 vard覺. Bu site ise Html 5 destei ile canlanacak. Genel yap覺, anahtar kelimeler ve havaalan覺 konsepti 羹zerine kurulu.

For example you move your cursor to Digital section at the top, then the client names who gave and finalized a “Digital” work from Now Boardingwill become blue. When you click one of them, you see the actual work. Or if you move any client at bottom then the types of work will change depending on where you move your cursor. If the agency did a “Guerilla” work, then “Guerilla” will be blue, if it is a “Branding” work there “Branding” will pop up. So you can view the type of work you are looking for. If you are interested in “Print” works, all you need to do is click on “Print”…

Sitenin ileyii 癟ok basit, yukar覺da bulunan i t羹rlerinden hangisine imlecinizi getirirseniz o ve o t羹r ileri kapsayan m羹teriler mavi oluyor. Ayn覺 ey m羹teri listesi i癟in de ge癟erli. Hangi m羹terinin ismine gelirseniz o t羹r i yukar覺da yan覺yor. Tabi renk deitirmekle kalm覺yor bir de havaalan覺ndaki tabelalar ve saatler gibi deien animasyonlar覺 var. B繹ylece ne t羹r ilerle ilgileniyor ne g繹rmek istiyorsan覺z kolayca ona ulaabiliyorsunuz.

We also used Airport language to seperate things. Instead of writing ‘team’, we prefer to say ‘crew’ and ‘contact’ is ‘control tower’. Things like that.

Siteyi haz覺rlarken al覺覺lagelmi kelimelerin aksine havaalan覺 terimlerini tercih ettik. 襤letiim yerine kontrol kulesi ya da tak覺m yerine m羹rettebat gibi terimleri tercih ettik.
