Welcome to Raw Mixture, a small business set in the north Pembrokeshire landscape of mini mountains, wild headlands, quiet beaches, big skies and a lot of wind.
I’m Mary - a graphic artist and designer, producing prints, cards, paper goods, typography and original art. This is the handmade side of the business. It runs alongside Raw Mixture Publishing, an independent publisher of books, magazines and poetry.
Our logo in both cases is a small crucible - a melting pot of exciting ideas and collaborations fired by love, soul and humour to produce work that people can engage with.
We publish our own books, poetry, and illustrated work and the online magazine Unpsychology, edited by Steve. This magazine has really grown over the years, accepting submissions from writers, artists, storytellers, photographers and activists worldwide. Each edition has a theme and is available free as a digital download or a print on demand hard copy.
I guess one of our messages as Raw Mixture is that this is YOUR time. Humans feel pressure from so many things in a mad world, presenting as anxiety, depression and a sense of failure. These are huge time-wasters in a precious life, often compounded by loneliness, isolation and disconnection. Helping people make connections between their daily lives, their inner worlds and what is going on in the wider social and ecological spheres of the world gives them a framework, a way to move forward.
Our books and cards try to support that, all the while being beautifully presented, thoughtful items and out-of-the-ordinary gifts.
Raw Mixture studio is a welcoming and creative space; please get in touch if you would like to find out more.
