Marquiah Snowden is the designer and creative mind behind Menace Of Environment Studios.
Snowden has always had a creative spirit. She was exposed to the arts from a young age, and she continues to pursue creativity today because creating has always left her with a feeling of goodness.
“Ever since I was a kid, I was always given the tools to be creative, to be different. As I’ve gotten older, I stayed like that—I’ve always been doing something creative because it makes me feel safe and it makes me feel good,” said Snowden.
Snowden began Menace of Environment Studios just over a year ago. Menace of Environment Studios specializes in one-of-one pieces, all handmade by Snowden herself. However, as the brand begins to expand, Snowden has started to release other bulk items so more people can participate in the Menace of Environment Studios style.
Being a business owner is not always easy, but Snowden believes that it is worth it.
She explained, “Having your own brand is like, it’s yours. You can be as creative as you want without anyone stopping you, without any limitations on what you can do. The hardest part of that though is that you have to motivate yourself. Everything is not going to happen right away, your brand is not going to blow right away, so you have to continue to believe in yourself. Sometimes you’ll want to stop, but you can’t stop.”
Through all of her pieces, Snowden hopes to inspire others to embrace and love their own unique differences. She receives her inspiration from other creative outlets, such as watching documentaries and listening to music.
As a business owner, Snowden has a simple mission: “My goal is just for people to love my brand. That’s it—for people to love it as much as I love it.”
