Hi, I'm Mia. AIM Stuidio Co's designer, maker, packer, decision-maker, stationery obsessed owner.
If you hadn't already noticed, the name AIM is my name in reverse. Fun fact: the name first came about during a project at uni and stuck with me ever since.
Where it all began
AIM Studio Co was born at the end of 2017. At the time, I was still working at my graphic design job from 9 to 5. With a desire to feel my most creative at my desk, I set about finding cute stationery and desk accessories to keep me inspired in the office.
After a lot of searching to find the perfect small desk calendar, I thought I'd set about creating my own. I designed a 2018 desk calendar and ordered a few extras from the printers to gift them to family and friends for Christmas.
With the leftover inventory, I opened my Etsy shop. I added some (very amateur) photos and a brief description, then set them live on Boxing day, 2017. Fast forward to the present day, and I'm now incredibly fortunate to call this my job. I soon realised it wasn't just me who found joy in making their desks feel inspirational and using stationery to be extra productive at their desk. After all, most of us spend so much time at our desks. Whether in the office or working from home, there is no reason why they should be dull and uninspiring.
From pop up shops in John Lewis and Boots stores to being featured in national magazines. AIM Studio Co is now a proud partner of Notonthehighstreet and stocked in independent shops in the UK and US.
