Let us introduce ourselves...
We love what we do, and enjoy a medium sized design studio based in Kuwait, specializing in creative conceptual development and branding identity and strategies. The studio was established in 2009 by two graphic designers, Sara and Hussa. Both with design backgrounds, they ventured into creating a design studio that dedicates its services to originality in branding and design. Simplification is the key to what we do. By studying, researching, and creating what a business or establishment needs, we simplify and highlight essential points for communication. We also look to stretch our creative wings, and expand conceptually. We’re always up for a challenge.
