Loai Naseem Wikipedia
Nassem, born on January 10, 1969, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Nassem graduated high school from jeddah. Loai is a native of Jeddah. Unhappy with his business studies, he quit school after three years and began launching businesses with his father. In 1994 Loai travelled to the US to study graphic design at the Art Institute of Houston. He went on to work for advertising firms, and won several international awards for his designs.
When Naseem returned to Jeddah three years later, he accepted a position as art director at the Leo Burnett Advertising Agency before becoming one of three co founding partners of "3points Advertising Agency" in 1998. Tired of wearing the same plain Saudi thobe to work each day, he began to design his own thobes with the help of his wife and a tailor. By 2004, while still a partner at 3points, Naseem was designing and selling thobes out of his home for more than 100 customers. Annual sales that year reached SR75,000 ($19,900). By the time he co-founded Lomar the following year, sales had climbed to SR1.5 million ($399,000).
