I am Fahri Özkaramanlı, a visual communication designer living in İstanbul, interested in exploring the interrelation between people and technology through design.
I just founded F A A L, my design studio inspired by the dynamics of our technologically mediated lifestyle, producing work that thrives to be honest to its medium and responsible for the message it delivers.Visit http://faal.co for my commercial work.
I have recently been working on detecting and analyzing patterns, designing modular systems and streamlining processes in creative workflows.
Wordmark.it is my first project within this context. It is an online tool to help people choose fonts for their projects. It is fast, efficient and productive.Try it at http://wordmark.it
Cedvel is an application for designing grid systems. It aims to ease the grid design process and enable people to explore different alternatives rather than relying on same structures. It is far from being finished but you can test the prototype and if you do so, please send in any feedback regarding your experience.Test it at http://cedvel.com
Default UI is a simple tool listing all the default HTML user interface elements for modifying and taking screenshots to be used in wireframe designs. If you design wireframes you may need it once in a while.Bookmark it at http://defaultui.com
I have BA and MFA degrees in Visual Communication Design from İstanbul Bilgi University where I also taught Web Design and various other courses throughout the last seven years.
I practice and teach a combination of Human Centered and Content Driven design.
