Sibling design duo Maddison Graphic are a Norwich-based agency who pride themselves on working with local clients, embracing all sorts of commercial projects for the likes of ale festivals, architectural practices and, rather unusually for a design studio, churches – they’ve type-set an altar and created a glazed screen for a Cambridge chapel. Such a diverse range of clients means they’re capable of turning their hand to any number of visual styles, from crisp, clean type treatments to bold linear illustrations, but their output is consistently strong, answering briefs with clear, effective solutions.
This charming mailer, used to advertise the relocation of the studio, perfectly exemplifies their visual nous, communicating clearly and concisely with a beautifully reductive selection of graphic images. Clever boys!
