Dört Kadıköy

A brutalist and modular approach inspired by the architecture

Dortkadikoy_01

Dört Kadıköy (Four Kadıköy) is the Third Wave coffee shop in Kadıköy Moda.

The idea
Starting from a single cedar, on a common ground with the plain, brutalist architecture of the place, the pieces are divided equally into halves to form the symbol. Moving through four digits in the logo, 4 pieces come together to form the character '4'. The symbol keeps the simplicity and brutality, makes it a way out of it.

The parts that make up the logo become functional and maintain the identity when necessary.

Next work

I created letters by rotating a single line for the poster of Jeff Talks featuring SO? Architecture.

I’m passionate about typographic perfection, grid systems, and color interactions. These passions of mine make me question how to get to the best design solution and how to do it in the simplest way. I believe that good design results from a good communication and collaboration between the designer and the client.
