Happy new year! We are excited to introduce even more new products to our range this year and we are proud to introduce Maddison Ball Creative to Studio Pip. We spoke to the creator and genius mind behind it all to allow you all some insight into the face behind the business!
- What inspired you to start your company?
I’m sure I sound the same as every other creative out there when I say I started MBC during the UK lockdown however I have always known I wanted to work for myself, I just didn’t know what that was going to look like.
I have always loved colour, art, home decor, and my career was in Visual Merchandising for so many years, I got really fed up with realising everyone else’s concepts and ideas, I decided to start working on visualising my own.
- What’s your favourite product that you’ve created? Does it have special meaning to you?
You know, everyone will always say ‘It has to be the Lobster Print’ because its my best seller, but actually, I fall in love with everything I create eventually, so I’d really hate to pick a forever favourite. But, if you’re after a favourite for now, then it would probably be my ‘Be Nice or Leave’ print.
- In terms of supporting sustainability how do you source your materials for your products?
Everything I have produced for me, is done so in the UK. Whether that be the tote bags that I print onto, the crackers I had printed for me this Christmas, or any of the packaging that you see is all made in the UK.
I would love to be able to go completely plastic free but when trying to protect prints, this becomes hard, however I do intend on switching to compostable plastic sleeves in 2024.
Everything I use is also completely recyclable, even down to the stickers and tape I use to seal every customers orders.
- What are your future goals for the business?
So I have a few new products in the pipeline for 2024, including Tea Towels! But future goals would see me running workshops, whether that be finding your creative style or making your own tote-bag with me. I’d love to own my own shop one day but this would probably be more of a shop in studio. Who knows what the future has in store for me?!
