Senior Art Director
As a Senior Art Director in our New York City office, Filiz Sahin brings a mastery of style and design to making sure all the details align to create transformative brand experiences. She draws on creativity and out-of-the-box thinking to projects ranging from video to motion graphics and websites.
Whether she’s creating a new brand from scratch, designing a website, or directing other creatives, Filiz ensures that all aspects of a brand’s look, style, and feel are harmonized to differentiate and showcase that brand’s unique story and tone.
Over the past 12 years, Filiz’s work has spanned many disciplines, including art direction, visual design, product design, interaction design, and branded experiences for desktop, mobile, tablet, and beyond. Filiz also enjoys collaborating with her team members to arrive at the best possible solution for clients, which have included CBS, Sports Illustrated, Estée Lauder, UNICEF, Pharma, MTV, eBay, PayPal, and others.
Filiz’s work has been featured in a number of books, magazines, and design blogs. In 2013, she was honored by AdWeek magazine in their Top 100 talent list.
Filiz is also known for her custom fonts. Nineteen of them are available as a free download on Behance, a creative portfolio website where Filiz's work has drawn more than 1 million project views and more than 80,000 “appreciations” (similar to “likes”). Her fonts have been downloaded more than 200,000 times by other designers. She even created a custom typeface for her dog, Che, who is probably the only dog with his own typeface. Filiz felt that as a designer’s dog, Che needed a designer font.
