What kind of people are they?

The mirror has two faces. While they do their work with the care of an ant, they know how to take joy from it as a grasshopper. Plus, they are creating great ideas by combining the two. Their visual talent is to the extent that would turn Andy Warhol upside down in his grave. And, man oh man, our writers. They have the power of 5 Bukowskis when it comes to drama and 10 İbrahim Erkals when it comes to humor (yes, if you are a foreigner who does not know him, you will not understand the joke, sorry!). Their client services department consists of the nicest girls, who work with great care to details (incidents have been reported where they have given revisions to döner at lunch). On top of all this, they have such a creative director who has the sweetest and most modest character and is smart, intelligent and creative (ask him the meaning of capacitor and he will tell you. Yes, it is to that extent!).

He preserves his common sense and wisdom in his humidor along with his cigars. Whenever he closes his door, he designs perfectly running business plans. He is a master in whatever it is – be it social media, B2B or B2C. He is also the go-to-guy whenever someone feels in trouble. As serious and consistent he is with life, he is as cheerful and fun whenever he takes his head out of his “inbox”. He has a gift about when, how and with what elements a business should be run and never leaves something to chance. He is the safety valve of the agency.

As he puts it himself, he is a “professional” music listener and has a wide collection. He is a true soundtrack enthusiast.

Following his bachelor’s degree in Marketing Communications and Advertising at Anadolu University and a couple of shots at PhD in this field, he acted as an academic for 4,5 years at a very early age. During this period, he taught marketing communications to many people who are currently very active and successful in the advertisement sector. After his introduction to the sector in 2003, he climbed the stairs rather fast and managed the marketing communications plans of premium brands such as Hyundai, Fortis, P&G and Coca Cola in his career. Now, he works as ‘the boss’ in C2A. He is the MarComm wizard of the agency.

He most definitely catches you with his baritone voice and body language and does not leave you until he penetrates you with something that would somehow open your mind. If you haven’t listened to a ‘türkü’ from him, you simply haven’t listened to ‘türkü’ before.

Sr. Art Director

She is someone with the cuteness of the teletubbies who says “I am a born optimist” and who applies this philosophy in every field of her life. With her designs, she always aims at presenting the users with a positive point of view, reflecting a modern lifestyle while providing the simplest and most accessible solutions. Think of the Andy Warhol interpretation of Pollyanna. That’s her. It is therefore that she is a designer with high self-confidence who is truly impressive and also open to big ideas (Attention! Highly curly hair!).

Sr. Art Director

Thinking that he would leave behind the trauma the coup d’état of 1980 left in his baby body by attending to Marmara University’s Faculty of Fine Arts, Cihan had the second coup from the Turkish advertisement sector! But he has not surrendered, worked very hard and came thus far. Looking at his silent nature, some say that he is an adorable person and some rumor that he is a serial killer (thus came the nickname of Dexter). However, he is a real easygoing fella with his aesthetic perspective at designs and his weird stories. When he learnt the size of Canis Majoris, he decided that everything about this life is a big lie (So, as you will understand, he has a wise side in his character).

She likes the graphic design business as long as she knows herself. She even says she was born for it (though we actually think she was born as a graphics). And finally, here at C2A, she achieved her dream. Quickly, she proved to be a great employee, an ambitious, successful and quick learner one. She is cute and she is fun. Every time you do not hug her, there is a falling star in the sky. She is highly ticklish. She is as delicate as her name means in Turkish.

Furkan Yücel

Jr. Copywriter

He claims that he was born as a reaction to ‘beyaz leblebi’ on May 29, 1990. He studied business administration, as if it made him achieve anything. When he met books, he read, evolved, wrote, wrote and wrote. He believes whoever stays within some sort of boundaries will stay ignorant in many other ways. Therefore, there is no limit to his imagination and his curiosity. There also is no limit to how he comes up with nonsense ideas but from those nonsense ideas he comes up with rational and buzz-generating ideas (of course, on a rare occasion nonsense stays nonsense). He even shot short movies using his brain, which is heavily under the influence of his passion for cinema. You can be mistaken by his ordinary looks to be exposed to extraordinary behavior.

Ecem Taşkın

Intern Art Director

She continues studying graphical design and photography. What she is really fond of is to design packages. While we concentrate on the confectionery and food we eat, her eyes lock on the package and she tries to make it more beautiful in her head. She is an employee who increases the beauty average of the creative department. For now she is here as an intern but we all wish that she will become a full-time employee in the future. She is a Virgo; you have been warned.

Esra Belsan

Account Supervisor

She opened her eyes to the world in Ankara. Before she could get use to the capital’s atmosphere, she left for her hometown, Bodrum. She spent her days there playing children’s games and climbing to her grandmother’s mulberry tree (This sweet lady also has a sportsman background. She even played basketball professionally). After she was raised in a rather spoiled way, she turned out to be a handful and entered the world of education. When she was graduated as a successful student, she jumped herself in the advertisement world. She now does her thing at the Client Services department of C2A with the seriousness of Hulusi Kentmen (think of an account supervisor who gives revisions at lunch!). But under all this seriousness lies a golden heart as soft as cotton candy and she is as sweet as plain sugar.

Client Executive

After being born in the Keçiören borough of Ankara on a sunny spring day in 1986 and after spending an entire childhood on the roads between Ankara and Antalya, she finally graduated from high school in Antalya. She achieved her dream of studying marketing communications in İstanbul, which she had since middle school, despite all objections from her grandmother. After her graduation, she worked as an assistant director at Medyapım. But it was not enough for her and she started her master’s degree at Public Relations and Advertising. She worked and studied at the same time. She is that ambitious Now, as the sweetheart and beautiful client executive she is, she continues to live her ambitions and make others compulsorily share that ambition (She’ll literally bend an iron bar!).

Utku Topuz

B2B Marketing Director

He started working in the B2B Marketing field by putting together teams for telemarketing projects. He has taken major roles in comprehensive B2B projects carried out for Turkey’s leading companies. He is a man of details. Change the color of one of the hairs in your eyelash; he will notice it. He is a true hairsplitter (we have witnesses having seen him split hair). He is a true believer of teamwork. He always passes the ball to other players and that pass becomes an assist and the team always wins.

Business Development Executive

He was born in Eskişehir in 1989. He had thousands of friends who thought he was Tatar and looked like Nev, the Turkish singer (of course, it is not true). In 2007, he graduated from İstanbul Technical University as an engineer. He toils to integrate the numerical mind to marketing communications. You can see him pop from anywhere thanks to his deeply curious soul, crazy memory and bombasticly silly ideas. He loves to say “Perfect”. He is a true fan of computer games.

Kenan Bilir

Finance Director

He was born in İstanbul in 1971. As his education finished by his graduation from the high school of business administration, his real-time life and business experience is way more than his peers of the same age. Whatever he has learnt, he has learnt it from his former managers. He spent 7 years of his 25-year career with Capitol Public Relations and 12 with Tribeca. He is continuing his 25-year plus career at C2A at the moment. He is a true father figure. Take a tea break with him and you will spend the time as sweet as a cookie.

Accountancy

She has been working in accountancy for 17 years and feels like she was born in accounting and finance. She even worked at the stock exchange for a while as an intern but at the end of the day, she did succeed to get her certification as a Sworn Public Accountant. She likes to dance with figures. With her democrat, republican character (yes, to be both is possible in Turkey) and being a typical Virgo, she is very happy to be a part of the C2A family. Similarly, C2A is very happy to have her as part of the family.

Şakire Köse

Administrative Staff

She is an elder sister to us. She is our one and only. We adore her as C2A. She runs the agency as she runs her home and is very good at it. She never lets us down when it comes to tea and food; she feeds us. Hungry? Go to her and she will definitely have something to fix with all her maternity (if she does not have anything, she will create it and you will be shocked). Just like a theatre curtain that is getting ready to tell a happy story, her lips stretch to both sides and she smiles all the time. Her smiling face helps the agency have a high spirit at all times and she always makes us happy.

Behind every young blood, there is a sun that rises to balance him. And Melek Abla is that sun. She takes care of and tidies up 60 people here (and the young bloods here do not upset her). Recently, she has received the Oscar for ‘World’s Sweetest Person’. She is like the 4th member of “Golden Girls”. In the agency we love her as much as our mothers. She also is our one and only.

He is the protective warhead of the agency. Wherever there is a pastry, he is there. You can never eat a pastry product without him even behind closed doors. He lives by the motto of “Even if the slice is in China, go get it”. He loves us all and we all love him. He runs around with no purpose with his ears jumping up and down in the air and protects us from sparrows, pinecones and flying nylon bags. He is always after this kind of stuff. He never contributes to any visual or never says, “Let me be a part of this advertisement thing. Running around and that is it.
