Hi, I'm
Madelyne

I'm a self-taught designer, hand letterer, and muralist living in Washington, D.C. I'm the middle child of five. I'm endlessly curious and always asking questions. I like puzzles and knowing how stuff works, taking things apart, figuring out the pieces, putting it back together with some tweaks to leave it better than I found it. 

I've been telling stories since I was a kid. I got a degree in English and assumed, when I eventually got around to growing up, I'd make my living as a novelist. 

I see design as equal parts puzzle-solving and storytelling. I believe that good design makes all the difference. I'm just a human with hands trying to make the world a better place, one project at a time.

But that's enough about me

Let's talk about you. You've got a story to tell, a vision you're passionate about, a cause you're fighting for. You need some help telling that story, championing that cause, fighting the good fight. You're a hard-worker, but you do more than just put in the hours. You lead by example, you set the tone, you help others become better, whether that is through a product you make or a service you provide. You play well with others but, more importantly, you play, because life is too short to take everything seriously all the time. 

Did I miss anything? Does it sound like we might be a good fit?
