Work history

Co-Founder & Creative Director

Mechid Designs

Jan 2016
  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  • Freelance
  • Creative agency committed to the true art of branding, authentic ideas and genuine design. We are truly dedicated in inventing unique and remarkable creations. Creations that add value. Not just exist. The act of creation itself is our driving force, our passion and inspiration, a meaning and purpose to be. No matter if we do a visual design, program a complicated web application or just write a text; name a product or a brand, or assemble a complex system of many works together in one sophisticated creative campaign... — it is all equally important. We always put our minds and hearts deep in every single act, in order to create the best thing possible. This is how a genuine creation is born. And it cannot help but be brightly distinguishable of all others out there.
