My basic understanding of HTML and CSS gave me an advantage to understand the development process and excel as a digital designer. One of my favourite challenges at SMACK was producing digital iPad magazines for TLQ (a quarterly magazine for thought leaders) and Skylife (Inflight magazine for Turkish Airlines). I helped create truly interactive experiences for the readers incorporating video covers, real-time design, animations and dynamic smart buttons - pushing my skills in user experience and user interface.
