About Me,

Ahmet ERGUN

Hello, I'm Ahmet Ergun, an award-winning Industrial Designer and Architect based in London. I completed my undergraduate studies in Industrial Product Design (2019) and Architecture (2020) with a double major and graduated with honors from both departments. In 2022, I began my Master's degree in Industrial Design at UAL CSM, one of the leading universities in the art field. Since graduating from my Bachelor's degree, I've had the opportunity to work on projects with various companies, taking on roles as an industrial designer, UI/UX designer, architect, and design mentor.

 

I’ve provided mentorship and design support to numerous entrepreneurs through Europe’s largest entrepreneurship center, and I’m still actively involved in this role. In 2021, along with a small team I co-founded, we successfully crowdfunded my self-designed coffee grinder on Kickstarter, selling over 1200 units and raising approximately $300,000. The project’s design received substantial positive press coverage. Expanding on this success, in 2023, we launched our mini CNC lathe project, for which I also handled all the designs, and achieved another Kickstarter accomplishment, raising $636,000. With over five years of professional design experience, I’ve worked across various disciplines for 30+ clients and companies.

 

Throughout my student and professional years, I have been honored with 8 different awards in competitions, including a first place. My projects have been featured on prominent websites like Yanko Design, Interesting Engineering, and Trend Hunter.

 

I believe that design is the perfect fusion of technology, engineering, and art. By conducting thorough research and adhering to a rigorous design process, I develop tangible solutions that cater to users' needs and their environment. I am deeply passionate about the impact that objects have in our lives, and I strive to create designs that leave a meaningful impression.
