Madi Ko is a junior at the Rhode Island School of Design majoring in Graphic Design. She is from Alaska, where she hopes to settle down after trying this “design” thing out.

Madi is interested in how design alters the way we read, feel, and think. She sees herself working in politics, news, or non-profits– spheres where the role of design and its consequences are still being defined.

There are a few themes in her studio work & thoughts:

  1. Use humour and thoughtful design to make people want to engage with information

  2. reveal the disconnect between technology and real life (digital interface vs physical experience, perception vs reality, etc.)

  3. Make work that is specific and subjective while still being relevant to other people
