Hi! I’m Beliz, an illustrator / graphic designer from Istanbul and the founder of Mazu Studio. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated with colors, textures and visual stories. And because I was such a visual person, I studied architecture, thinking it was the correct path for me. But, after working as an architect for a while, I realized that I had a different creative calling and quit my job without a plan. Long story short, I now have a graduate degree in Visual Communication Design from Florence Institute of Design International (FIDI) in Italy and am forever grateful to have found the courage to take a leap of faith to follow my passion.

Even though I am now a professional graphic designer, I believe the power of the amateur spirit and creative collaboration, so feel free to contact me with any kind of creative project you have in mind!
