Meet Winston (and Rose!)


It has been quite the journey from starting up MaeMae in my college studio to working on my debut wedding collection album that is launching next month. I have learned so much about the creative process, customer service, and asking for help. These past two weeks have been fully dedicated to getting the collection to the printers and I could NOT have done it without my fab assistant Katie and my intern - ROSE! Rose has been doing work for MaeMae from far away (New Zealand!) for the past year and this summer made the long journey all the way to my studio to wok here. If that doesn't blow your mind I don't know what will. We are having so much fun designing away and learning NZ lingo (my favorite word is "roggie" = roger aka OK).

Above is the last collection inspiration board for Winston, my desert-loving character. Yes he has a pet llama. 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

PS I will be launching some new branding elements in Sept - what do you think of the these triangle number markers??
