Ozan Karakoc Design Studio is a Los Angeles based creative house that specializes in branding, graphic design and advertising.
Partner. Not A Contractor.
We believe that good branding and effective advertising require more than being a service provider. It requires being a 'partner'. It requires listening to the client, understanding needs, pro-actively questioning opportunities and doing all those with genuine care.
Design That Works
Art for art's sake, or art for people's sake? This never-ending debate can live forever but we believe that design is for people's sake. Good design is the one that works. As Alvar Aalto's saying goes; 'Beauty is the harmony of function and form'.
Honest and Responsible
'Making profit' has never been our primary goal. It is only the outcome of our process. Our top priorities are work ethics, honesty and responsibility. If our strategic analysis shows that you don't need a specific service, we don't propose that to you, no matter how profitable it could be for us.
Caring For Design
Design is our true passion. That's why we value design itself as much as we value our clients. There is no such thing as 'good enough' in our book. We always seek the better during our eternal creative journey to perfection.
