My Name is Oasim Karmieh, I have been working as a 3d artist and graphic designer for over a decade now, I have always loved toys, and like every kid it all started with Legos and it grew from there, and it's one of the main reasons I followed design as a profession.
I have had the pleasure to work with clients all over the world. I’ve worked on some amazing projects from Animated films, animated short films, commercials, interactive iPad books.
But ever since I became a dad, the idea of starting my own business was floating in the back of my head, something that will make me jump out of bed to start working.
It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to pursue as a business, the answer was staring me right in the face, my office was filled with figurines, from Legos to wooden toys, to resin Laughing Buddhas, figurines, art toys, collectibles, super hero figures.
I have been working as a 3d character artist for a while now, and I enjoy learning what makes a character great, and how to push my poses and expressions to get more out of my designs, Long story short I decided to start a small Toy Design studio and create toys that I would love to have on my shelf.
The first toy that I designed was Batsy and the amount of love and attention this toy received was overwhelming and it gave me the boost that I needed to start Karmieh Industries.
