I'm Defne Kaynak.

I am a Turkish multidisciplinary designer based in NYC, focusing on digital product design. I am currently pursuing my master’s degree in Communication Design with emphasis on Digital Product Design at Parsons School of Design. 


I am interested in the web, photography, branding, and resolving design problems with a global point of view and informed experimental solutions. Outside of design, I enjoy the beach, long video calls, headbangable music, and all things neon. Recently, I have been learning coding (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), improving my Spanish, and creating vibrant gradients.


I am a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with emphasis in Visual Communication Design. Previously, I was a part of Wix Playground Academy, an exclusive web design program in NYC, interned at Ogilvy & Mather’s Creative Department in Istanbul, and was a designer and publishing editor at LVL3 in Chicago. I also have experience contributing to various projects with clients around the world as an independent designer, and volunteering as a design consultant at Arts of Life.
