Do it now not later

KL tower

After my presentation in In-House multimedia College we came to KL Tower area. There is a garden full of traditional Malaysian houses, nice to see these good looking houses.

In House Multimedya Kolejinde yapt覺覺m sunumdan sonra Kuala Lumpur kulesini ziyaret ettik. Kulenin alt覺nda eski Malezya evlerini sergiledikleri bir bah癟e de var.

Shooting in progress.

ekimlere devam.

Of course I visited the top floor.

Buraya kadar gelip tepeye 癟覺kmadan, Kuala Lumpur’a yukar覺dan bakmadan olmaz.

It’s nice to see the city 360 degree from this tower. Ecpecially Petronas looking amazing.

ehri buradan 360 derece izlemek m羹mk羹n, manzara ahane.

I wanted to make a bungee jumping here because I saw a platform for that but they said it’s available only some specific dates and only forprofessionalpeople.

Bungee jumping yapmak istedim olmaz dediler. (cidden) Belirli sezonlar sadece profeosyoneller taraf覺ndan yap覺l覺yormu.

KL tower is the 7th tallest tower of the world.The lift takes only 54 seconds going up to the observation deck and takes 52 seconds to come down.

D羹nyan覺n en uzun 7. kulesi. Asans繹r yukar覺 54 saniyede 癟覺k覺yor. 52 saniyede inmesi ise ilgin癟 bir detay.

I am Nicholas Cage again :)

Kore’den sonra Malezya’da da Nicholas Cage olmay覺 baard覺m.

There is also a small zoo around the tower. Here you see two headed turtle and love making monkeys.

Kulenin hemen alt覺nda bir de ufak hayvanat bah癟esi var. 2 kafal覺 kaplumbaa, seviken maymunlar ve 癟ok daha fazlas覺 i癟eride g繹r羹lebilir.

Angry birds, white one bit me. Not the monkey, bird.

Bir nevi Angry birds. Beyaz olan 癟ok pis 覺s覺rd覺. maymun deil ku.

In-House multimedia

This is In-House multimedia College. Second address for my presentation “Do it now not later.”

In-House multimedya koleji. Sonra deil imdi yap sunumum i癟in ikinci adres.

I don’t have the mac converter for the projector. They didn’t have it too. So they gave me a pc to make my presentation. Here I was trying to set things.

Projekt繹r i癟in mac 癟eviricim yok. 襤lgin癟 ki okulunda yokmu. Bana bir pc verip sunumu onda yapmam覺 istediler. Ayarlamak biraz zor oldu ama bir ekilde sunumu yapt覺m.

After presentation. Signing my cards for the students. :)

Sunum sonras覺 繹rencilere kartlar覺m覺 imzalad覺m.

Student names in my hand again

Eller gene doldu.

A super day together with In-House Multimedia students.

rencilerle birlikte s羹per bir g羹n.

Raffles college

23.05.12 I am in Raffles college to talk with design students here. “Do it now, not later”

23.05.12 Raffles kolejinde tasar覺m 繹rencileriyle buluuyorum. Sunumum Sonra deil, imdi yap’覺n ilk g繹sterimi.

Some works from fashion design students.

Moda tasar覺m b繹l羹m羹 繹rencilerinden baz覺 iler.

Scenes from the school corridors.

Okul koridorlar覺ndan g繹r羹nt羹ler.

Jack and Daniel will be with me in every presentation. They also printed some cards including my works. They will sell them to students with my sign and give me %30 from the income.

Jack ve Daniel da sunumlarda benimle beraber olacak. Arkadalar benim ilerimden binlerce kartpostal yapm覺. Bunlar覺 sunumlarda 繹rencilere sat覺p gelirin %30′unu bana verecekler.

Raffles Design students waiting inside.

renciler i癟eride beni bekliyor.

“Do it now not later” is not one of that boring serious design presentations. It’s a more like a kind of stand up show about design. Students like it that way. :)

“Sonra deil imdi yap” bilindik s覺k覺c覺 tasar覺m sunumlar覺ndan biri deil. Daha 癟ok tasar覺mla ilgili yar覺 stand up show diyebiliriz. renciler 癟ok eleniyor.

After presentation with Raffles students. I looove them all!

Raffles koleji 繹rencileriyle sunumdan hemen sonra. Hepsi 癟i癟ek bunlar覺n.

They want my cards with my sign and special notes for them. Lovely people. Designer is the new rockstar.

Kartlar覺mdan al覺p bana imzalatmak isteyen 繹renciler aras覺nda izdiham yaand覺. aka.

I asked them to write their names on my hand because sometimes I can’t understand how to write their names. :) Some Asian names are pretty hard for me.

Bazen isimlerini anlamad覺覺m 繹rencilerden elime yazmalar覺n覺 istedim.

Dylan in Portal

Maws bookshelf on left, My Turkish lesson to Pam seen on the right. She waspracticingabout how to write and pronounce my name. :)

Ajans kitapl覺覺 solda. Sada benim metin yazar覺m覺z Pam’e ad覺m覺 nas覺l yaz覺p okuyaca覺n覺 繹retirken verdiim k羹癟羹k T羹rk癟e dersi g繹r羹lmekte.

This is a brochure I designed for Maws. They are re-designing their company profile. New website, new id and new things like that. Jacky asked me to design something to promote agency. But he also wanted to have something useful. They had the idea of making an agenda to give the clients or people as a gift. That way people can use it in daily life and more people will see it. Other idea was making a brochure with an interesting folding. Because theiridentitybased on the triangles with thin lines. However I thought a brochure withtriangle shape or folding will bring us lots of problems and dead zones. Since they are an interactive agency I came up with a more interactive idea. It is a brochure printed in 50×70 cm paper. In front you have the information about company and some of the works. Then when you open it all you find two postcards made with agency’s works. You can rip and take it off from the brochure. When you turn back you see a big yellow area. There are instructions with 3 different colors. If you follow the blue one you create an envelope to send your post card with the brochure itself. So brochure actually has a second life and pushes people to be interactive just like the agency. If you want to do something else you can follow the pink lines and make a origami flower. Green will bring you a little origami chicken. All these lines are also fitting nice with the agency identity.

al覺t覺覺m ajans Maws’覺n tan覺t覺m覺na yard覺mc覺 olmas覺 i癟in Jacky benden bir bro羹r ya da ajanda tasarlamam覺 istedi. Kendisi ajanda fikrine daha yak覺nd覺 癟羹nk羹 insanlar覺n g羹nl羹k hayatta kullanabileceini ve bunun daha kullan覺l覺 bir promosyon olaca覺n覺 d羹羹n羹yordu. A癟覺k癟as覺 ajanda fikri bana 癟ok ucuz geldi. Bro羹r ise bir kere bak覺l覺p kenara at覺lacak bir eydi. Ayr覺ca ajans覺n 癟izgiler ve 羹癟genlerden oluan kurum kimlii konseptini uygulamas覺 zordu. Farkl覺 katlama bi癟imleri denedik ama istediimiz kullan覺l覺l覺覺 elde edemedik. Sonra ben yeni bir fikirle geldim. 50×70 boyutunda bir ka覺t kullanarak yapt覺覺m bu bro羹r羹n 繹n y羹z羹 ajansla ilgili bilgi ve ilerden oluuyor. Bro羹r羹 tamamen a癟覺nca kopar覺p alabileceiniz 2 adet kartpostal g繹r羹yorsunuz. Bu kartpostallarda ayr覺ca ajans覺n ileri bas覺l覺. Arkay覺 癟evirdiinizde b羹y羹k bir sar覺 alan sizi kar覺l覺yor. Ajans interaktif bir medya ajans覺 olduu i癟in bro羹r neden interaktif olmas覺n diye d羹羹nd羹m. Bu sar覺 alanda 3 farkl覺 renkte 癟izgiler sizi kar覺l覺yor. Numaral覺 y繹nlendirmeleri izlerseniz mavi 癟izgiler size bir zarf yapt覺r覺yor. B繹ylece bro羹r羹 kart覺yla birlikte i癟ine mesaj覺n覺z覺 yazarak bakas覺na g繹ndermeniz m羹mk羹n oluyor. Pembe 癟izgiler size bir origami 癟i癟ek yapman覺zda yard覺mc覺 olurken yeil ile bir origami tavuk sahibi oluyorsunuz :)

Dylan. He and his friends Daniel & Jack organizing the event 2012 Game & Art festival in Kuala Lumpur. I will be there as one of the guest designers too. Dylan also selling Valve’s games in South Asia. He gifted me the Portal 2 game for mac platform. How nice. The first game became one of my favorites and it’s been a long time since the new version released but I couldn’t have time to buy and play because of travelling and designing around the world. Awesome!

Dylan’la tan覺覺n. O ve arkadalar覺 Daniel & Jack 2012 Kuala Lumpur oyun ve sanat festivalini organize ediyorlar. Dylan ayr覺ca Valve oyunlar覺n覺 g羹ney Asya’da satan irketin sahibi. Bana da Portal2′nin mac versiyonunu hediye etti. Bu harika 癟羹nk羹 oyunun ilk versiyonunu bitirmi ve Valve’覺n en iyi yap覺mlar覺ndan biri olarak listeme alm覺t覺m. 2. oyun 癟覺kal覺 uzun zaman olmas覺na ramen al覺p oynama f覺rsat覺m olmam覺t覺. Bu hediye tam isabet oldu.

This is something I did to say thanks to Dylan. Teleporting just like in the game :)

Portal 2 hediyesinden sonra bunu Dylan’a k羹癟羹k bir hediye yapt覺m :)

Big sunday part 2

By the way I forgot to post about my second room in KL. This is the room. Actually the hotel name is also “The Room Hotel” :)

Yeni odam buras覺 dostlar. Gayet it.

This is Central market where you can find billions of souvenirs and interesting things.

Central market diye bir yer var. Kapal覺 癟ar覺 gibi bir yer. Bir ton hediyelik eya ve ilgin癟 羹r羹nler burada. Gezmeli g繹rmeli.

It’s really really hard to keep your foot in the water :)

Bu bal覺klar adam覺 yer.

A Turkish shop. Selling blue eyes.

Nazar boncuk癟u bile var burada.

Chinese bazaar.

in pazar覺.

There is an antenna on the phone. That’s weird. Maybe it’s just for decoration but it looks funny :) Monorail trains are an alternative way of transportation here.

Monorail trenler burada toplu ta覺mac覺l覺kta b羹y羹k 繹neme sahip. Sadaki telefon kulubesinde telefonun anteni var. 襤lgin癟.

Mado in KL! This is a Turkish restaurant and Hakan bring me here. We ordered Turkish tea and baklava. OHHH YEAAHH!!

Kuala Lumpur’da Mado a癟覺lm覺, hem de 癟ok pop羹ler bir caddede. Hakan beni buraya getirip 癟ay ve baklava 覺smarlad覺. Ba-y覺l-d覺m. Teekk羹rler Hakan.

I am happy here.

G繹z羹mden mutluluk f覺k覺rtt覺m.

This is a popular street of KL. People call it as Arab street. The real name of the street is: Bukit Bintang. There is a huge shapping mall just for electronics. So I didn’t miss it and have a look inside. Prices are much better comparing to Turkey. Ipad is nearly same price with U.S.

Buraya Arap soka覺 ad覺n覺 takm覺lar oysaki soka覺n ger癟ek ismi Bukit Bintang. Burada dev bir al覺veri merkezi var ve sadece elektronik eyalar ve teknolojik oyuncaklar sat覺yor. Ka癟覺rmad覺m tabi. Fiyatlar T羹rkiye’ye k覺yasla 癟ok daha uygun.

A figure shop I discovered there. Prices are good and figures are endless. I can spend all my money here actually but I didn’t even buy a single thing.

Buras覺 i癟in s繹yleyecek s繹z羹m yok. T羹m param覺 癟ar 癟ur edebileceim bu mekandan tek ey bile almadan 癟覺km覺 olmama insanlar irade ad覺n覺 veriyor.

They are going to beat this guy. He stole something.

Bu abiyi bulurlarsa fena benzetecekler belli.

Another shopping centre. Big one.

Gene dev bir al覺veri merkezi.

I saw an erotic shop in the shopping mall. Yes in the shopping mall. Interesting. Malaysia really surprises me sometimes :) I had a look inside. There was really crazy things but I can’t publish them here. They also have this kind of fantasy costumes. Lots of alternatives. This is more like a japanese concept :)

Al覺veri merkezinde erotik shop mu olurmu arkada. Malezya’da oluyormu. Burada baz覺 eyler beni 癟ok a覺rt覺yor. Matbaa benim illustrasyonlar覺m覺 a癟覺k bulup basmazken al覺veri merkezinde erotik shop olmas覺 癟ok ilgin癟 bence. 襤癟erde ilgin癟 eyler vard覺. Bu t羹r konsept kost羹mler g覺rla mesela.

 

Game Art fest

Designer on the road is one of the artists in Game & Art festival 2012 – Kuala Lumpur. Tomorrow I will be there all day long. Anybody want to meet just come and say hi :)

Yar覺n t羹m g羹n 2012 Kuala Lumpur oyun ve sanat festivalinde konuk olaca覺m. Tan覺mak isteyenleri beklerim.

Today I shared my “Do it now not later” presentation with students of In House Multimedia College. One of the students Jefferson did this illustration for me after the presentation. :) It actually has some key points about the presentation :) For example we had a speaker problem thats why he draw speakers on my left eye. My right eye and all the other elements are other stories :) Thanks again Jefferson. Lovely surprise :)

Bug羹n 繹rencilerle “Sonra deil imdi yap” adl覺 sunumumu paylamak i癟in In House Multimedya kolejindeydim. Sunumdan sonra Jefferson adl覺 bir 繹renci bana bu illustrasyonu 癟izdi. Benim i癟in harika bir s羹rpriz oldu. izimde beni oluturan objelerin hepsi asl覺nda sunumla ilgili par癟alar ve hepsinin bir hikayesi var.

Big sunday

Last Sunday I met with one of my follewers here. A Turkish guy who is living and studying in KL. His name is Hakan and he is living here since 1 year. So he knows the city very well and he showed me many interesting places in one day. Thanks Hakan. Will never forget that.
