many years working full time on graphics, product and ceramic
design, Maui Waui decided to have a change of business and
developed a range of ceramic soapdishes based on period style
sinks called “The Period Sink Soapdish”.
were marketed through architectural antique stores, gift and
bathroom shops and later we took them ‘on the road’
going to country fairs with our period style market stall.
In 2000 we set up a retail lifestyle shop, Campaign, in a
period style of around c1900, complete with victorian shop
fittings and counters and plenty of palms.
designed and made a range of traditional gladstone bags and
slippers made from the finest axminster and wilton carpet
and sourced interesting period style gift ware. I even used
an early electric singer sewing machine to make the linings
and also my own linen jackets and trousers.
We ran the shop for about 4 years but following a separation,
I sold my half of the business
and resurrected Maui Waui Design as my original freelance
graphics business again.
was amazed at the reaction of past clients from many years
ago, saying how pleased they were I was ‘back in business’
so I can continue some of their design work again, including
Adnams Brewery, The Cask Marque Trust and many more.
If you think I can help you with any graphics, branding, packaging design or illustration please contact me on 01508 530934.
