Our Story

susam’s journey started when the paths of Mustafa, a seasoned UX designer, and Dilara, an award-winning illustrator, crossed. They were both driven by a shared passion for branding and had scientific backgrounds. The fusion of their skills and shared love of innovation laid the foundation for what would soon become susam.

Something unexpected happened after a while when their professional collaboration began – Dilara lost her beloved feline friend Susam. In honor of the enduring friendship that spanned 13 years and the inspiration he provided, Mustafa and Dilara decided to name their budding venture after the cherished cat. Susam Creative was born as a testament to creative thinking and connection.

As the studio evolved, so did their expertise. Mustafa’s analytical prowess and stoic problem-solving approach complemented Dilara’s visionary storytelling and creative flair. Their goal was clear: to empower creative entrepreneurs and transform their dreams into tangible, visually compelling realities.

Through a journey of assisting diverse clientele, they found their true calling – they love to find solutions for unraveling the complexities of the SaaS, science, and aviation industries. Recognizing their true calling, the duo rebranded the studio simply as “susam.” This strategic shift allowed them to fully embrace their potential, focusing on industries where they could bring unparalleled value and innovation.

Today, susam is constantly evolving to meet the aspirations of extraordinary entrepreneurs. Welcoming new talents with the same enthusiasm for creative problem-solving, the expanded team of susam keeps pushing boundaries and crafting extraordinary strategies for tech entrepreneurs and SaaS startup founders who dare to dream big.
