WHO WE ARE

WE COULD AND WOULD NOT EXIST IF IT WAS NOT FOR THE ARTISTS SHARING THEIR WORK WITH THE WORLD VIA OUR PLATFORM.

we think seeing what they do describes best what we could be to you.

ON A MORE PERSONAL LEVEL

We are no bots, so you can select a name below to see who is in charge of what in our team.

Since our admins are non industry breeds, their work often dismisses key aspects of user experience design and service branding, which she points out and fixes. Furthermore she is in charge of almost all of our PR and press activities and therefore an essential  key figure to our service.

Our number one go to guy for graphics and edits. Every logo and lettering of our name used on this website is by him. He is also featured in our GRAPHIC DESIGN section and is open for assignments. See his page here.

When it comes to calculating and overseeing an exhibition, a gig or both we would not feel comfortable doing so without having rechecked with our eventmanager and location scout in chief. He also is a musician himself, you can see his work here.

Currently residing in Hamburg, while working on her MBA, she helps us finding and developing new business and marketing strategies. A frequent visitor to exhibitions herself, too, she also scouts locations for our future exhibitions in Hamburg.

After looking for a new way to present his own work in a free, creative and inspiring environment without the obligation of unsolicited ad consumption, he started this project in 2017 as a personal blog and turned it into a platform for all creativity in 2018.

OUR STORY

SEE WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

ILMAZU.COM WAS FOUNDED IN 2018, MAINLY BECAUSE ITS CREATOR HAs BEEN SICK AND TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED OF OTHER PLATFORMS’ LACK OF SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND THE ENORMOUS POWER AND IMPACT THEY HAVE ON INDIVIDUAL PERCEPTION WHICH THEY DENY BY IGNORING this fact FOR THEIR PROFIT.

SOME MAY ARGUE THAT PLATFORMS ARE NOT MEANT TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE WAY THEY MAKE MONEY OFF OF OTHER PEOPLES WORK AND MAY DISCUSS THIS TOPIC FURTHER WITH US BY SENDING AN E-MAIL TO SHUTTHEF***UP@ILMAZU.COM.

BUT JOKES ASIDE, WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST LOOKING to get featured and to earn money, IS THAT YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING EXPLOITED AND F****D UP BY SERVICES SELLING INTERACTION CAPACITIES IS PRETTY HIGH.

THAT’S WHY FOUNDER OKTAY YILMAZ  was looking for a new environment to present his own work. after REACHing OUT TO FELLOWS OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY AND MUSIC SCENE  he CaME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT AN OVERALL NEW SERVICE WITH ITS’ OWN FAIR SET OF RULES AND CONDITIONS WAS NEEDED. 

he then turned his blog into a platform for all creativity.

Since then ILMAZU.COM launched four garment editions, a set of live events in different cities across Europe, and is currently featuring the work of more than 20 artists from more than 6 categories on its website.
