M A E D S T U D I O is a creative and innovative space for POC , to meet , create , collaborate and showcase inspirational work. Inspired by the unseen and discounted talents from all flavors of life. M A E D is proud to offer creative design services and host collaborative projects with a variety of artists. And a place where models can access helpful resources in order to thrive and grow.
During my 4 years as a Graphic Design Graduate of Portland State University, I have spent time exploring and practicing what I love the most, design. Unforgettable creative experiences start with good people, positive vibes, and a strong passion to produce amazing work. I have created an environment, here at MAED that embodies all three of these aspects. After school I have continued to grow and specialize in graphic design, photography, videography, and illustration.
Each of these skills play a huge role in every project created here at MAED. As the founder of MAED STUDIO, creative art direction is a responsibility I take great pride in. Each project, I make, is my top priority to involve POC creatives and aspiring models. Doing so, gives the creative POC community a professional platform to build and produce projects as a team. As I move forward with Maed, each project will live on this website including a monthly printed magazine. My goal, as a Graphic Designer, is to build and add a more diverse creative community.
