Regardless of the enormous amount of projects, working on weekend and holydays is the main taboo of Orhan Irmak Tasarım. Besides they never participate in free tenders. Another tradition is the annual vacation of the whole Orhan Irmak Tasarım office in the end of July when every member of the team rests from projects, phone calls, emails and stress.

But all the other time the agency works in full force and effect helping  all kinds of companies (from small businesses to international corporations) to conquer the hearts of the consumers with packaging design.

We have asked Orhan Irmak to spot key factors that majorly influence branding in Turkey. Orhan has sheared with us couple of interesting observations.

 — Color preferences: the Turks like bright colors and it shows on what we see on the Turkish supermarket shelves. The packaging in bright, intense colors has more chances to be noticed by the consumers than the products in pale or dark colors. «We prefer the colors of spices that Turkish cuisine is famous for».

 — Yonger generation: youth greatly influences brands in Turkey making them to keep up with the times. Even brands with centuries of history have to consider young people opinion regarding brand strategy and design.

And of course we couldn’t resist to share some latest cases from Orhan Irmak Tasarım`s portfolio:
