Today, we’re thrilled to introduce you to the enchanting world of Ilayda Küçükosmanoğlu, the UX Designer par excellence coming from the vibrant city of Rotterdam. Buckle up,
we are about to dive into Ilayda's professional achievements, as well as a sneak peek into her exciting personal life. So, let's dive right in! 

The UX Mastermind

When it comes to creating user experiences that are both delightful and intuitive, Ilayda Küçükosmanoğlu is in a league of her own. As a UX Designer at the renowned DEPT company, she possesses a magical touch that brings digital products to life. Whether it's designing interactive interfaces or crafting seamless user journeys, Ilayda's creativity knows no bounds. Her journey in the DEPT company started 5 years ago, and now she is both a UX designer and Campus lead. If you want to witness her UX work firsthand, make sure to check her website

We are very thrilled to have not 1 but 2 DEPT experts: our dear Ilayda Küçükosmanoğlu and Marten Kuipers, senior designer and art director who will hold a speech on our second day. DEPT was recently granted, for the second time as a Network and Agency of the Year at the 2023 Webby Awards, 

Behind the office walls

Ilayda Küçükosmanoğlu is more than just a UX rockstar, she also leads an incredibly colorful life outside the realms of pixels and wireframes. Ilayda is the proud founder of "Meiden die Rijden," a social bike group that celebrates the joy of pedaling together. It's not just about the destination; it's about the laughter, the friendship, and the shared love for two-wheeled adventures. 

Another passion of hers is the Susan Bijl bag swap event. We all have that one bag we adore, right? Well, Ilayda took her passion for bags to the next level by organizing the first-ever Susan Bijl bag swap event in Rotterdam. Who needs a dull shopping spree when you can swap bags with fellow bag enthusiasts? It's a unique blend of fashion, sustainability, and community spirit that only someone as spirited as Ilayda could dream up.

Isn’t she great? Of course, that's why we invited her, to bring us primarily knowledge but also fun! If you are a designer, strategist, and in general a creative person you should definitely check out the tickets for her Masterclass and join us for a conference!
