Hello! I'm Ufuk Bircan Özkan.

I am an industrial designer with a passion for creating functional and aesthetically pleasing products. With more than a decade of experience in the field, I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects ranging from furniture and hospitality to toys and transportation. I have 2 patents, 5 utility models and more than 50 design patents registered.

In my work, I strive to identify and solve problems through thoughtful design, attention to detail, and a user-centered approach. I believe that good design has the power to improve people's lives and make a positive impact on the world.

Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I hope you enjoy exploring my work and learning more about my design process and philosophy. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss potential collaboration opportunities.
