Oz Paker, MFA
I am an interdisciplinary designer and my work ranges from branding to multimedia design. After graduating from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Istanbul, with a BFA in Ceramics Art & Design, I moved to New York to pursue a graduate degree in design. In 2001, I completed my MFA (Master of Fine Arts) degree in Design & Technology at Parsons School of Design, NYC, while simultaneously working as a faculty member in the Product and Communication Design departments. In 2002, I started my career in creative design services with a passion for communication design and new innovative technologies.
As a digital designer, I am driven to create innovative, elegant and human centric user experiences for print, web and mobile products. I am passionate about applying consumer psychology with an interaction science-backed approach. Being a detail-oriented, organized, adaptable individual, a natural leader and a good team-player with excellent communication skills, helped me throughout my career to advance. It also helped me to work with great companies and clients from many different sectors: such as e-commerce, printing, automotive, trade shows, health, fashion, art events and galleries, consultancy firms, etc.
Each project is different; and being a communication designer, I see myself as a translator between the challenge and the end product. Even though technology and tools change rapidly, the essentials of design remain the same. I am highly notable for my eye-catching minimalist aesthetic, sophisticated design sense, keen eye for color and composition.
First located in New York, I moved to Los Angeles with my family in 2016. I have a son in high school.
