Behind every good design is a person                         who knows a thing or two about being human


About Ciera Maddox

Hi there, 

My name is Ciera. I hail from the lusciously green and drizzly terrain of the Pacific Northwest – Portland, Oregon.

I am an artist and have worn many hats, namely as a graphic designer, teacher, and art therapist. My experiences have been expansive and in vastly different areas, but what always has and continues to thrill me most is the interaction between the human experience and visual design. 

Outside of work, it is likely you might find me inspecting plant life, growing things in my garden, making large amounts of sauerkraut, or exploring bugs with my kids. Whatever I am doing, I assure you my curiosity and lust for life have taken the wheel.
