It was a fateful game of “spotto” at a Year 9 school camp that saw 14-year-olds Madi and Jarrod become a couple. Despite a break up at 18 they were engaged by 21 when shy Jarrod proposed on a picnic. “I gave Madi a ring but was speechless with nerves,” Jarrod recalls. They married in a beach wedding in Bali at 22. Jarrod is a very handy “Mr Fixit” – a carpenter who has made a lot of furniture, including all the furniture in their apartment. Madi completed a bachelor of design degree at university and works as a graphic designer. She started in fashion but now does corporate work including cookbooks, logos and websites. Jarrod says: “We are the perfect match, a mechanically minded person and a designer, just what you need to get something up and running.” They describe their design style as “natural, raw, rustic with a modern twist”.
