A pleasure to meet you

Hi, I'm Mete Erdogan and I am a designer. At the moment I'm in second year Graphic Design at Monash Uni; the work's hard, hours are long and i love it. I also love Sigur Ros, Ken Taylor, and blanket magazine. In fact, there are many things I love & I'm sure you'll find out what they are over time.

I feel that starting a blog will be a great way to share some work, meet like minded people or anybody who finds my work interesting.

So for my first post, I give you Oscar Wilde's 'The Importance of Being Earnest'. This is a book sleeve design in first semester this year. The textured silhouette is inspired by Danny Yount's opening credits of 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang'. Short film 'Jasper Morello' gave me the idea for the mythical Victorian contraption, made completely from cogs, brass, anything that would've been around at the time. The whole eclectic, toyish feel pays homage to Wilde's quirky style of writing.

I had a lot of fun with this one :)

Anyway, there are many more to come. Thank you for reading my first blog.



  1. I just stole your comment virginity - Lucien

  2. Mete, welcome to the Blogsphere. Suzan told me that you had started a Blogsite. Mine has been going for a while now. I will continue to visit you.

    I look forward to seeing your creative work and posts.

    Actually Mete, perhaps you should post that video that you made for your Dad promoting his fashion business. That was very impressive.

    Good Luck!

  3. Hey Ardent, thanks very much, pleasure to be here. Ohh man the Monza video, there's an oldie, I'll see if I can find it. Don't know if I'd be able to handle looking at those pictures of me all over again :P

    By the way, is this Adam? Suzan's brother? Ozel Abla's son?
