VCD – Advertising & Graphic Design


Hello! My name is Maddie Carey! I am a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. I specialize in visual storytelling, drawing inspiration from vintage aesthetics and introducing a modern twist. My work is often typography focused and often involves vibrant colours, nature and patterns. While my work is primarily digital design, I take pleasure in incorporating traditional elements into my work. Following graduation, I hope to continue to hone my craft and collaborate with fellow passionate artists.

Pride & Prejudice Book Cover

In this Pride & Prejudice book cover design, the charm of Jane Austen’s classic story has been adapted to instead focus on queer love. By reimagining the iconic tale through a modern lens, this adaptation aims to introduce Austen's captivating narrative to a diverse and contemporary audience. The cover design is inspired by classic hardback books and is modernized through a clean and vibrant illustration style.
