Mehmet ErkÃ¶k from Turkey is an industrial design lecturer at the Istanbul Teknik Ãœniversitesi’s Department of Industrial Product Design by day, but during his free time he fools around with cellphones by personalizing them to the extent where you can’t even tell what the original handset model is unless you’re a true blue phone maniac. The different forms of personalization include removing the keypad and throwing in totally new buttons as well as shifting the icons in the menu about for kicks. I wonder whether there is a market for this sort of personalization job. Some people call it art, others call it butchering.
