At the time, Bilkent was
the new and up-and-coming university of Turkey and as I had already decided
to try and teach design after 4 years of learning it, this seemed ideal. This
post also afforded me the luxury of being able to research and "fool-around" with
design without the constraints of commercial pressures. Here I taught Basic
Design, Typography and software packages such as Ready-Set-Go, Photoshop, Freehand,
LetraStudio and Fontographer to undergraduates. I also managed to do some free-lance
print work for two ad agencies during this time.
gained vital experience in the teaching of design which helped me later on
to train staff and to direct their efforts.
