Get to Know Aylin
Name: Aylin Orhan
Occupation: Junior Designer
Current City: Atlanta, GA
- Tell us about your background.
I was born in Cleveland, OH but grew up in Bursa, Turkey. I came back to the United States for college at Northeastern in Boston, where I studied business. Towards the end of college, I realized my passion for a more creative career and began pursuing that passion before moving to Atlanta in the Summer of 2018.
- How did you first learn about infinitee and come to join the team?
I was researching agencies in the Atlanta area after moving here and found infinitee’s website. I connected with something… intangible… something that’s difficult to articulate, I really just vibed with them. I was still getting settled in after the move so wasn’t ready to begin applying to jobs yet, but I kept an eye on infinitee for any job openings. I finally decided to reach out to infinitee and the rest, as they say, is history. I joined the team this past February!
- How do you spend your work days?
We are lucky enough to have a variety of different clients in different industries at infinitee. This means I get to work on a range of creative projects. My days are a combination of creative design and campaign development.
- Before working at infinitee, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
While in college I interned at Pucker Gallery in Boston. It is an eclectic gallery that includes international works in ceramics, photography and mixed media to name a few. It was such a treat getting to be around and support beautiful works of art and it inspired me to follow my interest in a creative field after college.
- If you could pick another job for just one day, what would it be?
Maybe a florist. I love being around flowers and plants. Either that, or anything that has to do with caring for animals or children.
- What do you like to do outside of work?
I love photography, traveling, concerts and being outdoors. I also love doing yoga and just hanging out with my fiance. We are currently planning our wedding which will take place in Summer 2020.
- What’s the best vacation you’ve been on?
I took a 2-week trip in India by train just before I started working at infinitee. It was very enlightening! My grandparents have been a huge inspiration in my life, so when I had the opportunity to travel to India with them I made it happen. My brother was also able to attend so it became a great trip for me personally and for my family. During the trip I had the opportunity to immerse myself in a different culture and see people from all over India traveling to a holy site for an important festival. I photographed moments of the trip which have become some of mine and my grandparents’ favorite photos.
- What are a few things people don’t know about you?
Well, my family is spread out across the globe and I’m bilingual. I’ve also recently discovered that I’m a great cook— a talent passed down to me from my grandmothers, I’m pretty sure. I love to cook Turkish food but since it’s pretty time intensive, I don’t cook it as much as I’d like. I’m also finding that I’m interested in holistic health and healing practices… but still exploring that area!
