This is a must read! Its our first interview and who better to kick start our segment than our favorite design agency. I present to you, Studio AIO, the geniuses behind our blog design and whose owner we consider to be a dear friend. Many people have asked us about our blog and who designed it and now that they finally launched, we are proud to shed some light on their work and all they have to offer.
Studio AIO is a design agency that pretty much does everything that a rising business requires. From logos and stationary to packaging and websites, they take care of your design needs. They also provide professional photography which is definitely an added bonus.
So we sat down with Moodhi Alghanim, the founder and creative director at Studio AIO to find out more about her design agency.
So without further ado, lets begin the interview with Studio AIO’s owner and our dear friend, Moodhi Alghanim.
Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Moodhi Alghanim and I’m a 26 year old Kuwaiti artist. Most of what I do is self-taught, I started working with digital art 5 years ago and it has become an obsession of mine. I love to merge Arabic Calligraphy into everything I do, because I honestly believe that our culture has so much to offer, and utilizing that adds a personal touch to my art. I have so many interests that I wouldn’t know where to begin, from photography to music. Other than my love for design, Im also a book worm, I read everything I can get my hands on. I also love playing video games so I guess Im a bit of a geek. One thing that everyone knows about me is that I live eat and breathe technology.
What inspires your work?
I grew up in a very artistic environment. My mother is an artist and my biggest inspiration as cliche as that sounds. She’s always encouraged me to be creative and try different mediums in art from water color (which is her specialty) and oil paintings to gouache and charcoal. Ever since I was five years old, Ive been to countless art museums with my mother and from there my love for art was born. But eventually my obsession with all things technology drove me towards digital art which I absolutely fell in love with.
What persuaded you to create a graphic design company?
I’ve always been fascinated with graphic design even before I knew what that meant. Packaging and logos have been my obsession, the way a company can create a symbol that causes instant recognition to its brand, is something I’ve always admired. So I decided to share my love for graphic design by helping business owners in Kuwait to make their vision a reality. I also wanted to create a hub where designers in Kuwait could work in an environment with people who share a passion for creativity and art.
What exactly is Studio AIO?
Studio AIO stands for “All In One”, and thats the basic concept behind our design agency. Kuwait is full of bright minds with new ideas, but to make that idea a reality often involves a lot of back and forth between companies for branding, web design, and photography. At Studio AIO we merge the lines between these fields and create a one stop destination for all your design needs.
What services does Studio AIO offer?
- Branding and Creative Development.
- Packaging and Stationary.
- Web Design and Implementation.
- Banners and Advertisements.
- Art and Illustrations.
- Professional Photography.
Could you take a picture of your workspace and add a brief description?
I always have at least three screens active when I work. If I don’t multitask, I’d never be able to get anything done. My workspace is currently a mess though because Im redecorating the office and this is my temporary space till its done.
Anything you’d like to add for our readers?
If you don’t love what you do then you’ll never excel at it. Don’t be afraid to go for what you believe in and put in that extra effort. Its not going to be easy and I’ve had to overcome a lot of obstacles to finally start my own business, but in the end its definitely worth it.
