Madisen Montovino is a graphic designer from Camas, Washington. She attended Whitworth University with a full-ride academic scholarship and graduated in 2020 with her BA in Graphic Design. There she worked as the Design Editor and later as Editor-in-Chief of the university’s yearbook.
Madisen uses her work to explore themes of emotion and identity through color. She works with print and digital media to create compositions that are bright and playful, drawing inspiration from fauvist artists like Henri Matisse. Her art-making has become a way for her to process her experiences as well as inviting the viewer to look for beauty present in their own internal and external worlds. Madisen’s graphic design work often integrates the bright colors and illustrative quality of her fine art, creating designs that are welcoming and rhythmic.
