Director and Creative Director Tunctop grew up in İstanbul. During his product design study at Mimar Sinan University he didn’t know himself well. He moved to Amsterdam and pursued conceptual art at Gerrit Rietveld Academy, discovering a passion for story telling. After graduating, Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam approached Tunc with an opportunity to work as an art director. During his 4 year career at W+K he worked for global brands such as Coca Cola, Lego, Nike, etc.
With Nike, Tunc discovered how much he loved film sets, especially from behind the camera. For the Nike Turkey projects, Tunc was the working Art Director and Copy Writer of all commercials. After 4 years with W+K Tunc decided to move back to Istanbul and open his own company, El Turco Digital a small digital agency with 12 employees and a focus on video content for brands and other larger digital agencies.
He kept his company open for 5 years and was responsible for directing 99% of more than 100 viral, commercial, and introduction films for many Turkish and global brands like Coca Cola, Mini Cooper, Nike, Alfa Romeo, etc. Tunc and his team make an ideal creative partner, working both analogue and relaxed.
In 2016, Tunc decided to close his company in Turkey and focus on directing. Then in the middle of 2017, Tunc and his art crew joined the Istanbuldogz team! The word on the street is that Tunc is one of the most creative ‘up and coming’ Turkish directors on the market! His art and design background combined with his brilliant on-the-spot solutions make Tunc the perfect combination of creative skill and global quality experience. The perfect fit to be our one and only Turkish director.
