Strategies, logos, print, websites, packaging, partnerships… It must all start with a clear understanding of the value you are offering the world. Raw Design Studio begins every project with a brand identification workshop to understand exactly your ideas and vision. This is the only way Raw Design Studio can create alignment throughout the team to deliver the maximum value in design.
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.
