Our Madison Ways shape our culture and guide everything we do

Listen
Everything we do starts with listening. Listening leads to understanding. And understanding is the foundation for effective, creative solutions.

Stretch
Push beyond those initial ideas. Reach for innovative ways to solve problems. We learn hungrily, then pass along knowledge at every opportunity.

Excel
Be outstanding and keep promises. Our talented team has proven experience across every brand touchpoint. We’re the kind of partner you know you can count on.

Appreciate
Your wins are our wins, and we’re grateful for them. We respect the people we work with and treat them as guests in our home.

Include
We celebrate individual differences and welcome new perspectives. We work intentionally to amplify fresh voices and build diversity in our workplace and our industry.

We have a history

Brands have a story. People have a story. Brand people who build brands for people—they have a story, too. Our story starts with donated furniture, bartered services and a radical idea: do great work for great people. Two college friends (Julie and Jackie) combined their creative powers in 1998, elevating Jonathan from the design ranks to full partner a few years later. Since then, we’ve found that perfect balance of market flexibility and sustained growth.

We like to be involved

We stand with Huenited Collective
We’re always looking for ways to be more inclusive and recruit diverse talent. We are proud board members of Huenited Collective: an equity, diversity and inclusion organization focused on celebrating creativity and fostering design career opportunities for people of color.

We mentor students
Madison Design has been committed to developing top young talent for over 15 years. Our interns and co-ops hail from the University of Cincinnati (our alma mater), Miami University and Northern Kentucky University. We’ve also established a scholarship and regularly host studio visits.

We give our talents
We’ve always believed in the importance of giving back. Over the years, we’ve donated countless hours of creative services to select organizations. Our pro bono client of record is the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati. We’re honored to support their mission of “Eliminating racism, Empowering women.”

We create community
We’re deeply ingrained in Covington KY, Madison Design’s home for 25 years. We co-founded Covington Creates, a meet-up group for creatives living or working in Northern Kentucky to help the creative community grow and connect.
