Here is a selection of press coverage featuring our studio and work; articles, interviews, books.
All the time I am creative but the level of it fluctuates. I am triggered by my daily experiences, surroundings, and observations. All of these always change and evolve.
Interview / Our Creative Place
We talked about our story, creativity, motivation and future plans.
We also believe immigrant entrepreneurs are particularly special, because they create something out of nothing. You travel, observe, and find out about a new place. You connect with the locals. It’s very different than just moving to Denmark to get a job with a known company like Novo Nordisk. You come in and create something that didn’t exist before. These kinds of people should be appreciated.

Interview on Pomegranate #2
We feel Denmark is more our homeland than anywhere else in the world. We have been contributing to Danish society and Danish cultural heritage through our design work. And we would love to continue doing that.

Our story with a focus on our immigrant identity.
Forleden stod jeg på messen i København og fik beskeden; “We are being deported”. Ord, der sender mig på afgrundsdyb rutchetur, lugter af angst og lejre. Og stinker af et Danmark, der er gået for vidt!!

Our struggle with the Danish Immigration Law.
We knew we wanted to live in Scandinavia. As designers, it was just the place where we were the most inspired, and also where our work made the most sense.

Our story, work, and Pomegranate # 1 popup at Vess.
We are interested in creating aesthetic experiences. It is not important how we define our work. The experience between the work and the user defines that. As soon as we create the work, no matter how we tag it, it starts its own life. The user and the work creates limitless meanings and definitions through their interaction. That is incredible and very exciting.
Hamide Design Studio
Aslında başlangıç çok zordu, dediğiniz gibi tasarımla Danimarka birbiriyle çok eşleşmiş bir şey, köklü bir tasarım geçmişleri var. İlk başta çok fazla önyargıyla karşılaştık. Ben çok geleneksel bir şekilde ürünlerimizi çantaya doldurup mağazaları geziyordum ve bazı mağazalarda, hiçbir şekilde benimle konuşmak istemediler. Danimarkalı olmadığımı anlayınca, hemen kapıyı falan gösteriyorlardı, ama bazı mağazalarda da daha açık fikirli insanlarla karşılaştım. Yani bir süreçti ilk başta zordu, yaptığımız işi iyi yaptığımız için, ön yargıların üstesinden geldik. Amacımıza çok bağlıydık.
