CREDITS

​The teams responsible behind the projects created and conducted by Simon Ghahary.

A humongous thanks

So many people have helped me achieve the possibility of delivering concepts, designs, experiences, visions and art throughout these years I wanted to dedicate a place on my site forged with my deep gratitude, respect and sincerity to all that have been involved. I also wanted to list the credits and share all the wonderful people that were part of these times, that were part of my history and still continue to inspire and excel in there own right, most as masters of their field, talented artists and generally good all round human beings.

A tidal wave of love and thanks from the deepest caverns of my heart and being for all your hard work, patience and support.
— Simon Ghahary, October 2012
