Hi! I am Kaan Özkan who is passion and ambitious for creativity. I’m from Istanbul and living in Hamburg, Germany since December 2017. In 2011, I graduated from Kadir Has University (Istanbul) - Advertising department with honour certification.

During my education, I did internships in Samsung Mobile as a Brand Ambassador and did internship as Copywriter in Grey Istanbul. Also, I did my Erasmus Exchange Student Program in Hochschule RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, Germany for 6 months and did Advertising Campaigns for BBDO Düsseldorf (Client: Snickers) and McCann Erickson Frankfurt (Client:Opel).

After my graduation, I stayed at the university as an assistant student and part-time instructor for Visual Design classes. After my 6 months experience at university, I got a job offer from NIVEA Beiersdorf Turkey as a Junior Brand Manager & Digital Marketing Supervisor. I was managing four sub-brands’ (NIVEA, NIVEA MEN, 8x4 and NIVEA Baby) marketing campaigns on digital and social media. At the same time, I was responsible for NIVEA MEN as a Jr. Brand Manager.

I live in abroad since 2014 (Warsaw, Poland. Now: Hamburg, Germany) and worked as a freelancer on Social Media & Digital Marketing. I also had entrepreneurship experience in Warsaw about Gastronomy.

If you request, my CV is available upon.
