Meet Burak Vardar, one of the youngest designers in Turkey.

Burak Vardar, 19 years old, is one of the youngest designers in Turkey. He is studying graphics and design at Istanbul University and electrical and electronics engineering at Manisa Celal Bayar University.

Burak started his design life at the age of 15. He decided to become a designer when he liked a manipulation work that he saw on Instagram. Since then, he self-learned the photoshop program on youtube and he shared on his Instagram account all the photos he was making for 4 years.

When he turned 18, he signed his first professional contract. In this way, he became a premium designer at Zedge and started selling his own designs. Then he signed a sponsorship agreement with a big computer company in Turkey in order to upgrade his equipment and improve himself. Currently, he is a theme designer at Huawei and continues to share what he does on Instagram.
At the same time, Burak Vardar is taking part in many events in the Nft field. He made the opening video and bag design for the NFT SUMMIT ISTANBUL EVENT, one of the biggest Nft events in Turkey. He is also studying electrical and electronic engineering at Manisa Celal Bayar University to develop himself in Nft and blockchain.

I have always loved improving myself, and I have always dreamed and pursued these dreams. I never saw design as a job. The design was a way for me to make my dreams come true, so I made my dreams instead of logos, business cards, and posters.
