In 1984, when we started designing “Graphics” we had a stove-heated office at Teşvikiye and our telephone number had 6 digits. On our tables we had our rapidographs, Letrasets and craft knives… Also, we had lots of creative ideas!

Today, none of them except the last one exist.

Now, more than 30 years later, we are still designing “Graphics” for our national and international clients.
