finding beauty in the unexpected

Maria Marie is an Art Director, Photographer & Graphic Designer with a focus on searching for exquisite details in the mundane, and blends the most dreamy palettes. Inspired by colour,  patterns, movement and composition from the world and culture around her, she combines traditional graphic design elements with photography, art and styling. In the digital realm or on a three-dimensional scale, she combines different mediums and disciplines to build visually engaging stories. Her approach is collaborative and grounded in cultural awareness. Having worked with clients from small local start-ups to international icons she understands the need for brands to attract and connect with a diverse range of audiences through meaningful and thoughtful visuals. 
No matter where in the world she is, she can always find the same welcoming beauty from the unexpected.

pastel moods

What draws us to the cafes we visit, the buildings we live in, the parks we feel joy? Does nature affect our mood?

Focusing on colour most predominant in my work, each chapter explores a different colour tone; how it is used to speak to our psyche and how it moves us. Bathed in pastel hues, I explore how different pastel colours makes us feel, inspires certain states of mind and how these reflect how we go about our life.
