Design, Make & Fix.
Make•Do is a multi-disciplined creative studio and workshop offering services from graphic design through to hand-made bespoke furniture and up-cycled objects. Every job is viewed through a design lens, combined with real-world knowledge and experience enabling the execution of projects of various size and scope.
“This is the type of business I’ve been seeking most of my professional life,” says Darren. “A place where I can fully express my creative scope as both a designer and maker.”
“I’ve always moved between graphic design, product design and making, it feels perfectly natural to me,” he adds. “During the first phase of my career I was a product designer, but completed graphic design projects both at work and as a freelancer. Then co-owning a boutique ad agency, working full-time as an art director, designing and making objects was still a big part of my life. I designed and made workstations and other bespoke furniture for our various offices and have built our family home from the second fix stage.”
Darren is also a licensed handyman, so he can help you with most repair or maintenance jobs around the house, that you don’t have the time or expertise to perform.
It’s an eclectic mix of services and makes Make•Do Studio hard to define, but Darren’s happy to wear that as it means he can continue to explore the breadth of his creativity and making skills.
