About

We are Mad Earth. With our studio stationed in Goa, we work globally with our focus on the local.

We help develop creative editorial content as well as content for branding and communication. We design magazines, magazine covers, cover stories, books, book covers, newsletters, annual reports, information graphics, websites, develop design strategies and communication campaigns for brands.

Along with our new projects in surface patterns and designs for the fashion and home textile industry, we also work with artisans from various indigenous crafts of the country, as creative consultants to develop products for the global market place.

We believe in a need based approach to design to achieve an efficient functioning of any creative project. We also believe that collaboration enriches a project bringing in new energy and greater bandwidth to it. We collaborate with editorial experts, photographers, illustrators, film makers and artisans having exciting portfolios to bring that extra edge to our projects. We hope one day design can be used as a tool to bring about positive and sustainable change to our world. So please hit the contact button if you are interested in working with us.
