Hi, I'm Erhan.

I guess it all started with me explaining to my parents at the dinner table the choice of my studies by saying “ I want to understand why people choose a certain pack of cigarettes over another.” Luckily, I never developed any interest in smoking but so much more for Branding. Because Brands represent identity. And growing up in a Turkish home in Germany, I was surrounded by various cultures, identities and languages through family and friends.

Leaving home, I found the same buzzing surrounding in the years to come. International studies in Arnhem and South Africa, followed by working for multinationals in Amsterdam and Rotterdam with colleagues all around the world. So, no surprise that I am now happily settled in a multicultural home with my Dutch wife and our son.

 

Now looking back at the experiences I gained, the thrill I get from insides views into different markets and value chains, my fascination with corporate culture and the demand for more creativity in B2B, I want to focus on what I am most passionate about: identities, stories and writing.
