This is a lays new limited edition 3 flavors of Istanbul chips packaging project. The concept behind the project is inspired by a mix of emotions towards the city of Istanbul. I am a foreigner living in Istanbul and since day one, and admiring feeling towards this city has evolved specially to its history. Istanbul has a rich history and you can feel and touch this richness once you step foot in this amazing city, thus I thought the best way to transfer what I perceived is by taking everyone on a journey to 3 of the most known areas of Istanbul and introducing people to unique flavors that can be found in these areas. I decided to visualize my idea with “ postage stamps “ since they reflect my way of seeing Istanbul as a heaven of rich history and culture.

Postage stamps were faces of cities and cultures from around the globe, these might be small drawings and illustrations on a small piece of paper but the impact is huge, postage stamps connected the whole world, they travel in places and time periods, which makes perfect sense to visualize history and time travel in a form of a postage stamp, I want to connect the world through time travel to Istanbul with flavors that strongly represent the city.
