Inspiration vs. Imitation: AHID Evolved

If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.Gail Sheehy

Humans have a major fear of change and yet, it is as they say, the only constant. Cliché, maybe, but true nonetheless. In our eighth year, we decided to embrace the need for growth and rebrand AHID Studios. Scary stuff, we know. Making a change like this always comes at a bit of a risk, and involves asking a lot of really difficult questions. Who are we today? Where do we want to be?

WWCDD? Be bold, be honest, and embrace the weird – always.


Combine our insatiable thirst for knowledge, love for reading, and burgeoning library and this is what you get: our first monograph, lovingly created by the team at Will Creative. While the guts are still under wraps, we hope you’ll leave space on your coffee table for this beauty once we fill the pages with all of the good stuff – like maybe just detail shots of chocolate and red wi
