6 THINGS WITH MADDY PEASE
6 Things with Maddy Pease Graphic Designer, Art Director and Photographer
Based in Los Angeles, Maddy Pease is a creative and true multi-hyphenate. She's a Graphic Designer, Art Director, and Photographer. Making art in different forms has allowed to her to create a career where she feels energized to work. With a focus on photography, branding, and editorial design, Maddy has worked with an incredible list of brands including Paris Hilton, Ace Hotel, Jeffrey Campbell, and Eberjey to name a few. It doesn’t stop there either. Maddy pours her creativity into her side business Cherry Pickings, hand-picked collections of timeless vintage. Whatever project Maddy sets her mind to, she pours her whole heart into it. My guess is there's more coming from this creative force.
1. What started it all for you?
2. What drives your creative spark?
3. Most treasured home decor item?
Right now it’s my white boucle togo style couch that I got from Kardiel – my first “adult” purchase and it means a lot to me. I sit on it everyday while I work from home and honestly am very careful with who and what I let touch it!
4. What’s the best advice you've ever received?
Know your worth – it can be scary to charge what others charge and ask for fair compensation, but 10/10 times it’s worth it. Speak up for yourself and don’t let people walk all over you – unfortunately too common in the creative industry.
5. It's 5 o'clock at home. What would you be pouring?
Lately, it’s been a crisp, ice-cold coconut water from Harmless Harvest - although if it’s a special occasion I’ll do a homemade Negroni.
