Hi, I'm Cansu!
I'm a designer shuttling back and forth between Istanbul and Copenhagen. Loving the flexibility of working in new contexts and settings, I have spent my past five years studying my bachelor design degree in Turkey, the Netherlands, and South Korea with a graduation in 2012, while I have worked in Denmark, India and Uganda for short periods.
My recent project, Happy Baby, is leading the research, design process and the pilot study of an affordable and comfortable baby carrier, aiming to be produced and used in the rural areas of developing countries. I have been an active member of the open source innovation platform OpenIDEO with two winning concepts; and besides I was awarded by INDEX: Design to Improve Life and UNICEF with my previous school projects. The experiences I have had in my short career helped me set the concern of having a positive social impact as a primary goal in my profession.
