Hey, I'm Oykun
I've been designing digital products for nearly 25 years now and I've accumulated a ton of experience along the way. Now, I'm excited to share what I've learned with fellow designers to help them grow their value and earn more money.
I'm Öykün Yılmaz, a designer based in London, UK, with a background in development and a passion for simplicity and accessibility in design. With nearly 25 years of experience, I've had the privilege of working with great teams on many successful projects, some of which have been featured in the iOS App Store, TechCrunch, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and other tech blogs and print publications.
During my career, I've taken on multiple roles across various disciplines, including software development, design, project management, and creative direction.
I have worked on many projects in different sectors, such as finance, healthcare, entertainment, telecommunications, education, and more. I have worked with clients such as JPMorgan Chase & Co., Garanti Bank, Turkcell, Adobe, John Hopkins, Cooper Union, Musixmatch, and various startups.
Currently, I'm Senior Vice President of Design and Design Manager at a Tier 1 Investment Bank where I lead design in various business lines and bring consistent experience through a design system.
