About me
Hi, I'm Maddy, Founder and Designer at Paiv Creative. An independent design studio that works with brands that have a 'because.' I am based in Norwich but work with businesses all across the UK and Europe. I specialise in brand identity design, but also work in editorial design, campaigns/advertising, packaging and web design. I’m really passionate about translating someone’s business vision into reality and helping them achieve success. I’m also a big advocate of ‘shopping local’, there are so many benefits to supporting independent businesses, and design is no different. There's a lot that needs to change about the world right now, and I genuinely believe that people have the power to make a difference. I work with individuals who are building businesses that are paving the way for a better future, and I love nothing more than seeing those big ideas out there doing good. I have worked with global brands such as Unilever, as well as smaller SME's and startups.
