International Business • Leadership • Marketing & Design

Born and bred cosmopolitan, I am inherently impassioned by globalisation, cultures, and involvement across borders. On that account, I pursued my studies in international business & management (BBA) and was granted the exceptional chance to organise and lead an international team.

My conceptual thinking, interpersonal skills, and multicultural background have resulted in a demonstrated ability to deliver growth in complex environments, human-centric change, and creative solutions. My expertise and interests lie within the broad spectrum of international business, innovation/development, leadership, marketing, and branding.

Driven by growth and impact, I constantly seek out the extra mile. As I believe to be most effective in a global context, I am open for a challenging internship with international responsibilities.

Passionate to explore, lead, and innovate by going beyond the extra mile.

I remind myself of this statement to guide me in everything I do. It helps me briefly communicate what working with me is like, but also it is a formula incorporating my values and pushing me closer to my goals. On a side note, I used quite some buzzwords in this section to summarise fuzzy concepts; I hope you don't mind.

Goals:

  • Embracing adventures

  • Making connections

  • Staying conscientious

Values:

  • Open-mindedness

  • Dynamicity

  • Consistency

Embracing adventures

Growing up in a village, I have always been curious about the exotic. Not to mention that I was lucky to have attended schools with multi-cultural classes. I worked with people from across all continents further fuelling my interest in culture. I decided to study an international programme to see whether this is really what I want. All I can say is that it completely changed my perspective. I have learnt a ton about how to do business abroad, but most importantly, I became very open-minded towards taking risks and making connections. Especially when I went to Moscow for a short course, I realised that it is really easy to be trapped in biases and ever since I have tried avoiding prejudices. My goal has always been to discover other cultures not only in terms of food, land and religion, but also their communications, values, and norms.

Staying conscientious

successfully leading, motivating, and inspiring global teams.

To envision the unlikely, to go the extra mile, to serve as an assertive leader by encouraging innovative ideas and elevating those around me.

What are your goals?

Where you’re going to school and what you’re majoring in (if you’re still a student)

I hope this bio will help me landing at suitable internships that expose me to international challenges (open to work abroad).

Graphic Design

Once designed a few logos for a project and completely fell in love with graphic design. Since then, I have worked on a few brands and used my new design skills in my other work. The following are a few examples. Visit my behance page (be.net/emrahmelez) to view some of these projects in detail.

Abboud Plastering Company

A Frisian plastering company assigned the making of a timeless, scalable, and appropriate brand identity. I designed a diverse range of concepts with the main principle of them being recognisable as a plastering company. This resulted in a few logos with much appeal, professionalism, and fun.

Student Ambassadors

To recruit and guide new college students, Student Ambassadors serve as an international group sharing experiences at open days, education fairs, visits, and online. By virtue of its services, many incoming internationals have entered their studies with excitement and confidence.

It was my task to design a logo that represents credibility and their purpose for internationalisation by providing the group a rather modern and simplistic identity thaucial to this project, the parent t can be used across platforms. Cruniversity logo was considered in selecting design elements resulting in a logo that represents the group yet suits to the university house-style.

Bachelor Minor: Business Development in the MENA region

The initiator of this International Business specialisation assigned the making of a four-page flyer, which would attract students to opt for the new minor.

Political Network Drenthe

More inclusivity, diversity, and active citizenship in the province of Drenthe (the Netherlands) are central values pursued by Political Network Drenthe. In its logo design, the network's aim to reach more political variety was highlighted. To visualise the collaboration between communities and the province, a gradient with strong contrasting colours was chosen and combined with a shape that resembles Drenthe's initial letter. This idea also somewhat embodied the concept of conferring around an ovalish-looking table.
