Ugur Özkardesler

the long of it

Growing up in Turkey, Ugur was obsessed with television, watching cartoons and creating his own commercials and music videos. Later, he discovered Flash and went nuts creating moving graphics.

Ugur refined his object-oriented Actionscript website and game development skills, including Actionscript animation, video and sound integration. His creativity grew with each new technology he discovered. He also acquired a wide range of experience in graphic and web design by overseeing several branding and web-based projects. Now, Ugur directs the team responsible for motion graphics, UI/UX, and development. He is a key contributor to strategy, technical, and art direction for a variety of products for integrated creative solutions. He’s also a whiz of an animator, applying his creativity to art direct and produce motion graphics video projects for broadcast, events and online, crafting stories from conceptual and design standpoints. Ugur has received numerous industry awards for his work in motion graphics and interactive. Each day, Ugur asks himself, “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” Most days, his answer is “today.”
