"Orta Format is an e-magazine that focuses on interviews, articles and projects about contemporary photography. It is independent. It's non-profit. It emerges as the product of a collective effort."


Orta Format was established in November 2011. Dozens of interviews, articles and projects were featured in the magazine. The magazine is available in both Turkish and English. And an important part of the photographic art and culture in Turkey.



We have prepared the visual language of Orta Format in a simplicity that does not outshine the content. We, always, cared about the visibility of the photos, easy readability, functionality and access to the archive. We produce design-works in a wide range of areas: Branding, website updates, annual reports, posters, covers...


Since 2011, we have been providing free support for Orta Format's visual communication needs. Like many artists and writers who worked hard in the preparation of the publication, we work with pleasure and happiness as well.
