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 at the same time sort of stumbled into the sign industry. Starting as a designer and CNC operator at RiNo Sign Works, Maddie has since worked her way up to be the Creative Director and manages the shop at our Denver location. She has really found a place for herself in the sign industry, getting to create a variety of designs for all types of companies and see them go up all over her home state is one of the most satisfying ways to flex that design muscle. In whatever spare time she finds, Maddie is probably doing something outdoors or working on one of her many side projects.
