Since the day it was founded, he believes that “being diligent, simple and understandable' is one of the factors that brings success. He continues to produce, to create, to renew and, every time, to ask one question: "what can we do better than before?”
"They are different, creative, practical and fast. I have no doubt that we will continue to think and work together in the future with 451 Derece, since we always enjoy working together and thinking together."
"When working with 451 Derece, we never feel that we have come together because there is work to be done. We have never felt that we are on two different sides of the table. I can define working with 451 Derece as working with a team who knows best way to describe and demonstrate what we want to tell, and working together for the same goal."
“We have been working for 4 years with 451 Derece and their professional team who have extensive project experience and use international standards in their work. When it comes to the World Bank's mission of "improving the welfare and reducing poverty", it is not easy to create exciting and compelling stories while emphasizing the diversity of countries, people and subjects in the development area. Working together, we have accomplished so many different and useful projects in so many different areas the World Bank operates. We are so glad that we crossed paths with 451 Derece."
"We worked together with the 451 Derece during 3 periods of the Ministry for EU Affairs’ Civil Society Dialogue Program. While working with 451 Derece, we have always felt that we are one big team.

We have come together in many projects, we respect their working discipline and principles, and we hope to continue our collaboration.”
"To consider 451 Derece as just a solution partner is not enough to tell the experience of working with them. It is impossible to not accept them like a part of your own company with all the friendliness and involvement they demonstrate during our cooperation.They think about you and consider your needs far more than you, so the solution they propose is just spot on and more than enough to meet your needs."
“451 Derece understands us very well; we consider each one of them as part of our Special Olympics team in Turkey; we are pleased with every project they bring us; they are our friends who put their heart in everything they do. I don’t need to say more, I think.”
“A highly talented agency in maintaining sustainable relationships! They never give up despite all the obstacles, and 'deadlines' being suddenly moved to an earlier time without minding working overtime. The first agency that springs to mind when it comes to comprehending the brief, and doing quality work. 451 Derece is the agency where you encounter special people to work with!”
"451 Derece is an easy-to-work-with communication agency that manages the process very smoothly in line with customer demands; one can understand how systematically they work just looking at their brief format. They are professionals and visionaries and really good at calming the customer. Also a very sweet team :)”
