Engin Onder has a background in advertising and communication design. He is the “catcher in the rye” of the Institute of Creative Minds, the creative agency that he founded, where he develops projects on media, design and marketing, participates in international biennials and provides consultancy services. Having no plan to be journalist in the first place, Engin ended up finding himself in the media business due to ecopolitics of Turkish media. As the founder of 140journos, Turkey’s popular new media publisher, he has been in a constant effort to understand, analyze and tell about Turkey since 2012. Named as “The Man Transforming Journalism in Turkey” in TIME Magazine’s “Next Generation Leaders” series in 2015, Engin gave lectures and conferences in many U.S. academies such as Harvard, Columbia, Princeton, Northwestern. Engin occasionally writes for the Harvard University’s Nieman Reports and is the co-author of the book “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Erdogan’s Galaxy” published from 60pages and Boston Review.
