OZAN KOTOĞLU
UNKIND PARTNER
OZAN KOTOĞLU
Production Manager
Graduated from Industrial Design Department of Mimar Sinan University Fine Arts Faculty.
While he has been involved in a team designing and producing military drones he has found himsels in mascot production business. He not only has a dazzling talent in high tech design but also an incredable potential to transform these projects into perfectly working machines in real life. He is more than a mere industrial designer or engineer he is also a crazy dreamer with his bizzare proposals as solutions to problems. We owe to his talent line of all electro mechanical devices in our factory including Cnc Machine, vacuum press machine, 3D printer, foam casting system, laser cut system and many more. He knows everything except the money in his pocket. He has tolerance to anything but can be easily driven mad by lack of information and intelligence below average. It has never been possible to make him produce anything twice. that makes him change from Dr Jakyll to Mr Hyde. .
Crazy inventor of Maskot !
not what you say, but what you do
imagine a creative company; if a newcomer didn't take part in there, it is not possible to be experiencet at all! A strange fact but! we don't have a chance to hire anyone who has experience. because there is no such one!
Because there is no other place that has a system bearing our methods of production! That's why the creative crew we trained here is invaluable.

first comes character!

our utmost priority is not materials, neither summit, not success.
Our motto ‘first comes character’, not only for mascot production,
it is a reference for our basic point of view in life.
Our crew is deeply aware of that; what they produce is not a toy, representative of a brand.
what they craft is not an eye, but a look that will take place in a kids memories.
not mouth or lips, but a smile and expression.
every detail is articulated with great care, elaborated with that feeling.
to focus and love what you do is inseparable part of having a strong character .
Being part of the same team, we share this feeling mutually.

SALİH YILMAZ
Chef, catering organizer
we work hard like a bee, dance like a cicada!
WHY THERE IS NO ONE IN ATELIERI HAKAN ?
“We are an the street boss, need five minutes more please!”

Mascot, is not for fun of audience! it changes mood of all of us.
At the end of each production everybody turns to be kids.
GORILLA SHAME ON YOU! BUT WHO ARE YOU ?
“we don't know buss, he escaped!”

How come? he scared everyone on street!
Yes, costume is left over there, we couldn't find who did .
How can you not? who was the one missing in crew?
everyone was here boss!
Really! why do you grin ha!
Heeey, did our cook SALİH come?
“yes, he did!”

What do ve have for lunch?
Nothing!
Did he not cook anything?
No he didn't! Put on the wolf costume, he will dance!
Understood, we will starve today!
CEO IS HERE TO CHECK WORK, DON”T MISS HIM !
“we don”t use this method anymoreee !”

If you are a self improving crew, nothing is more fun than production control, because it has been our routine entertainment to surprise our ceo and brand founder by a new innovation each time, as he dropped down from his international vacations.
ARE YOU ANIMATOR DEAR ?
“Literally all of us ! ”

The nane of that guy on above photo is our mascot craftsman Nevzat Güler. He recently had a grandchild. he is now a grandfather.! if you watch our videos, you will notice that no one misses a chance of dancing in any occasion..
HOW COME !? THERE IS NO ONE TO ANSWER THE PHONES !?
“All twenty cows are outside boooss !”

Can not imagine anyone a radio parodi on us, because nobodey can figure out what is going on just by listening to rushing noise, or easily misunderstands.
“COME ON KIDS, EVERYONE RUSH IN !”

It’s an inevitable fact that we grow up,
but it seems it is something quite different
to be an adiult for us. than general understanding.
being responsible of our own decisions
but not to give up playing games !
we are absent as a whole crew at that kind of understanding of adulthood.
