Hello! My name is Madeleine. You can call me Maddie.
I am actively seeking opportunities as an Art Director or senior level graphic designer. I provide expertise in the advertising industry, in both in-house and agency environments. I have nearly a decade of experience working professionally on creative teams.
Experiences in various fields over the years have shaped me as a designer. I majored in studio art in high school, which lead me to studying industrial design in Pittsburgh. I moved to NYC where I started a business decluttering and organizing homes and offices while also freelancing at public relations companies and working in retail (New York is expensive). I went back to school and finished a degree in advertising with a concentration in art direction. Then I became Art Director at Mighty Engine (a small mission-driven agency) in Philadelphia. Now, I am in Atlanta working as a Hybrid Design Consultant at The Creative Group.
Outside of my creative and career pursuits, my other interests include sailing and rowing boats, window shopping for mid-century modern furniture, and watching Marvel movies and shows. I can give you recommendations for all types of podcasts and vegetarian recipes.
To see the experiences that have shaped me and the skills I've acquired along the way, check out my resumé.
