I build visually strong connections between people and brands.

Visual Communication & Brand Design

My name is Oğuzhan Öçalan. I was born in Turkey. After graduating from university I moved to Germany back in 2007 and began to pursue a career in visual communication design. I started my design studio Gravitart in 2008 to help start-up brands & existing companies to reach their goals, re-think and develop their corporate identities and business strategies in a minimalistic yet strong way.

I'm married and have two lovely daughters.
