Creator studio

Maxida Märak stands proud in her own merch. A strong, powerful, charismatic performer and activist, she champions the rights of the Sámi people.

Powerful Outspoken Words

A powerhouse of a creative, Sámi rights and real social issues are just a few of the themes that Maxida Märak champions in her work.
Multi-talented Swedish-Sámi joik singer, hip hop artist, actress and activist, Maxida Märak is one of Sweden’s most fluid creators. With a charismatic stage presence and outspoken informed attitude, she’s paving the way for Sámi creators and lifting Sámi rights.
As a recording artist, Märak has a string of albums and EPs to her name, predominantly hip hop but drawing influences from many genres. Critics and fans often refer to her stage presence, whether performing or in tv appearances – in which she can often be passionately and brutally to the point. A refreshing standpoint in a sea of homogenised, groomed, PC pop acts. And it’s not just the struggles of the Sámi people that Märak touches on in her music and commentary but also the problems of general society and its daily grind.
Style-wise too, Märak exudes honesty and authenticity. She is who she is; a proud mother, a member of a unique community and it’s from her roots and daily life that she draws her power.
Maxida’s CREATOR STUDIO merch brings bold graphic motifs and stylised Nordic wilderness scenes.

Finger On the Pulse

American singer/songwriter, Benson Boone is blazing hot right now. At just 21, he’s signed to Warner Records, touring extensively and building a rabid fanbase across the world. His latest EP, Pulse has recently dropped, showing the songwriter’s expressive skills as a writer and singer – honed through Boone’s collaborations and workshopping with Imagine Dragons’ frontman, Dan Reynolds. Not content to confine his creativity to stage and studio, Benson’s linked up with Creator Studio for his merch line, a project that’s close to his heart. We caught up with him to talk about influences, architecture, and the significance of merch to him and his fans.

Picture Perfect Merch

Based in Stockholm, Fotografiska has risen fast to become one of the vanguards of photography as an art form. From the beginning, Fotografiska has adopted a demographic approach to curation and spatial design, with a holistic identity that begins the moment a visitor enters the museum. With a thriving store, and restaurant as popular as its galleries, Fotografiska has now linked with Creator Studio to expand its merch offering. We chatted to Eva-Lena Degerhäll, director of retail at Fotografiska about the experience so far.
