    Defne Civelekoglu

    Industrial Design

    As a lead designer at gravitytank, Defne strives to turn insights into elegant solutions for how people experience products and services. In close collaboration with client teams, she enjoys tackling ambiguous design problems as much as experimenting with new and more effective ways of tackling them. She holds a BFA in Industrial Design from Carnegie Mellon University. Leveraging her background, she co-teaches prototyping classes at the Stanford d.school that focus on bringing ideas to life in a fast and light manner without compromising believability and impact. Defne is from Istanbul and often channels her outsider perspective in her work.
