Digital Projects Manager of Vogue/GQ/Miss Vogue Turkey, Bediz Yıldırm is sharing her life and work cycle in Istanbul.
Dear Bediz, please tell us;
Who you are
My mum and dad gave me this name “Bediz” because they wanted me to be unique. My name defines me; it has 3 different meanings: Creative form, art and sculpture. I feel like I am not breathing if I cannot create. I love evertything digital but I cannot live without analog.
It’s the mixture of your sight and soul. It’s also like the blood in your vains.
Structure your creative process
Taking pictures of the things that inspire me is the first step. In order to build ideas I always start with drawing wireframes and make collages about different themes.

What makes your city creative?
The architecture of the city used to trigger creativity but now it’s changing a lot in a bad way which makes me sad. However the sound of the city is still strong and inspiring.
