Madeleine Rode
Digital Artist


Nice to Meet You.

I'm Maddie.  

Illustrator.  Web designer.  Aspiring game developer.  Billie Holiday superfan.  Steadfast supporter of the Oxford Comma.

I spend my days with the creative team at Digital River, building epic websites and attention-grabbing graphics for ecommerce clients.  I moonlight as an amateur game designer and spend copious amounts of time with my face in my cat's tummy.  I love using my skills to help organizations that can't afford high-end graphic design work, so much of my experience comes from doing pro-bono and volunteer work.  I love to talk shop, so send me a note if you'd like to propose a project, ask a question, or suggest a videogame for me to play.
