Maddie grew up in Conifer, CO and graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with her BFA of Industrial & Product Design. After graduating, Maddie worked at Kohler Co. as an intern, where she dialed in how to design for very specific brand languages. After moving back to Colorado in 2017, she started her own venture, Pirate Fly Fishing, and then began working as a Designer at RiNo Sign Works. Getting to work with both emerging brands and established companies, she is able to create a variety of designs and see them go up all over the city. In whatever spare time she finds, Maddie is probably doing something outdoors or working on one of her many side projects.
