The story of us,

Max and I

My name is Carol. I am a designer and a mother.


I’ve been a drawer, a doodler, a maker of patterns and pictures my entire life.


After Art college I had a successful career as a printed textile designer in womenswear fashion and homewears for over a decade.


Then I had Max.


I have always created my own greeting cards. I loved how friends kept them on display all year round, regarding them not just as a card but perhaps an art piece.


Time after time I found I could never quite find what I was looking for on the high street, especially whilst trying to find cards and gifts for friends and their new arrivals. The answer was to design my own. This became the motivation for me to design a range whilst on maternity leave and just like that Max made me do it was born.


Maxmademedoit is a platform for me to illustrate all that makes me happy. My inspiration is drawn from anything in Max’s toy chest to vintage trinkets or Max’s father’s love of birds and nature. All are indicative of our daily life and are the make up of our home.


The collection endeavors to deliver endearing, whimsical and mischievous greeting cards and beautiful personalised art prints. It delicately fuses winsome illustration with playful messages that are sure to make you smile.
