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 design intern at RiNo Sign Works, Maddie has since worked her way up and is now the Creative Director and manages the shop/install team 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 sorts of companies and see them go up all over the place is one of the most fun 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.
