I'm Leyla Avsar, nice to meet you :)

Need a multi-skilled designer in your team? I'm a visual addict, trying to find my fix – a dream designer job in Oslo. I have over 20 years of experience in graphic design and art direction. My education in photography adds an extra boost to my repertoire. I'm a visual allrounder with a modern and fresh handprint. Here you'll find my CV:

335018584_159893626881816_3357689562948762513_n.jpg

I'm an outgoing, social and fun personality. I'm a sucker for good design, beautiful photography and well thought user experience. I love spicy food, indie rockpop, movies, sauna, travelling and dancing like everybody's watching.  

If you need a motivated, enthusiastic and experienced person to work for you, I'm your woman. Let's talk more!
