Computer games, which cover a large part of today's entertainment world, are increasingly important in digital media. With the developments in technology, computer game design has moved to different dimensions in the game industry. From a visual point of view, the line between games and real life has become very thin. The fact that the visual features of computer games are creative, unique and innovative beyond the relationship with the genre and main elements of the games brings the concept design of the game to the fore. Concept designers who can blend creative ideas with visual designs are needed in the production of computer games. The fact that concept design, the idea and visual expression at the beginning of the projects are seen as the most important stage in the computer game industry and many business areas, carefully reveals the place of this field in the sector. During the preparation of this study, the limitation of the studies and texts on concept design was seen as a problem. scientific studies on the profession's perception of the concept of design in Turkey could not be found. It is hoped that this study, which examines the current perception of this profession, will serve as a reference to other researches and researchers and contribute to the raising of awareness about this field in the society.
