M&M Designs

MM Design Group is an idea that's been on the back burner for eight years. It's brought to realization in the home studio of freelance designer Fatimah Hakim. Free from the confines of a larger company a more personal relationship between designer and client is fostered. Unencumbered by overhead we can complete projects large and small within budget and meet their deadlines. We understand that your message is important so we will never sacrifice it in our quest to deliver it in the most creative way possible. Connect with us today!
