Pamukkale means "Cotton Castle" in Turkish. It really looks like a cotton castle thanks to the hot springs and travertines of the place. It is a total eye candy, and I like how it looks since when I was a kid. I always find the place peaceful and calm, but also exciting! In my idea I wanted to show the place with people, to depict the athmosphere of the place. The views are opposite of each other, so if you hold the knife and turn around it you'll see this views. I put the sunset on the background to show a different ambience.

Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?
In this design I wanted to show how being in Pamukkale feels to me. I wanted to show the peaceful and calm athmosphere of the place. I wanted to put the people in my design because I wanted to show both the scale of the place and how will they the people be when they go there, because as it is a white place, it looks like snowy and cold, but it's not. It has many large and small termal pools which people can swim in and relax, and enjoy the sunset at the end of the day.

Hi! My name is Dinem, a fresh 22-year-old Product Design graduate. I live in Istanbul, Turkey and I did this design of Pamukkale (which means "cotton castle" in Turkish) to show a beautiful landmark of my country which I loved since when I was a kid. I've always seen this place exciting but also peaceful and I wanted to show this on my design.
