Asli Sonceley
We worked together  •  Director at Fake Crow, startup friendly UX/UI design studio.
He has an unmatched ability to see the larger picture. When it comes to an interactive product, he can immediately see the many different di ... rections the business model can go. He is able to implement that vision in terms of user experience design, from the earliest stages and smallest pieces of a product, to the more complex stages, revenue models and utility implementations. He has a good understanding of user instincts. And loads of experience working with start ups and established interactive brands.
Arnaud Saint Paul
We worked together at Pintrips
Alper is an amazing and passionate partner that will always look for the best interest of the venture he invests his time in.
Evan Lodge
MBA Sales Engineer Intern, OneShield and MBA Technical Strategy Intern, Gloss48.

Asli Sonceley
We worked together at Fake Crow Productions, LLC  •  Director at Fake Crow, startup friendly UX/UI design studio.
Nothing We've been doing for the last couple of years would be possible without Asli. She is super focused, super organized and delivers bey ... ond expectations each and every time. She gets it, and gets it done.
