Sabanci University, Visual Communication Design
Before I was in an accredited Architecture school I tested the waters in design in the Visual Communication Design program at Sabanci University in Istanbul. The city of Istanbul is especially meaningful to me because of the amount of years and friends I have in that part of the world. The collision of the East and the West, Europe and the Middle East, makes it my favorite city in that part of the world. The Visual Communication Design program in Sabanci University allowed me to take courses that ranged from Visual Foundation Design courses to European art history courses to engineering courses. The result was a perpetual interest in design which has led me all this way.
Sabanci university is a great private school that could open many doors for you. The Visual Communication Design department at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, FASS for short is easily my favorite school in the whole world. I wouldn't change my schools.
Studio culture, lecture classes and art district exchange trips are all a few courses that Sabanci gave me!
