What did you do for yourself today?

Artist Esra Gülmen, former design executive officer, will talk about her personal journey.

Having spent years in the advertising industry as a designer, she embarked on a parallel path as an artist, ultimately leaving behind her prominent role in advertising to fully embrace her artistic calling. Gülmen wants to convey how she seamlessly blended her artistic perspective with her design work during her agency days, infusing each project with creativity and passion.


Through sharing her own journey, Gülmen hopes to inspire young talents to bravely pursue multiple careers and embrace their creative work with an artistic spirit, connecting professional success with personal fulfilment.


Esra Gülmen will speak at the Forward Festival Berlin in September. Next to her, you will be able to hear Creatives like Ines Alpha, Aurelia Durand, Holy Motors and many more.
