    Game Designer and Project Manager

    Turkey - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 12

    I'm a creative problem solver with a strong vision, and I excel at communicating my ideas. I have designed various games for Facebook and mobile devices: puzzle, arcade, educational, gambling, farming, etc. I am experienced with monetization, virality, retention, and community engagement. Being a certified graphic designer, I use those skills to clearly explain game concepts and features through visual aids such as screen mockups, diagrams, and flow charts. This allows me to inspire artists and to provide unambiguous specifications to developers. It also allows me to present complex design possibilities to management in a concise, actionable format. As a Project Manager, I use Agile/Scrum methodologies to manage workflow and track tasks. I support an iterative workflow that puts features into the game quickly and allows for employees to develop as professionals. Games are my passion, and I'd love to help you turn your vision into reality.
