March 15, 2022
Madden Media ushered in spring with a refreshing addition to the creative team. Katy Livingston brings over a decade of design and art direction as Madden’s newest Creative Director. Livingston’s award-winning experience, working in different verticals alongside tourism, offers a fresh approach and outsider view of the tourism industry. Her experience promises to further propel the creative-driven solutions we deliver to destinations around the country.
“Katy has a funky, fresh approach to design and has proven her creativity and understanding of the tourism landscape with award-winning work for Martin County, Florida,” said VP of Destination Strategy Jamie Claudio. “Plus, she will use her experiences designing concepts for other industries, such as wellness and retail, to deliver next-level creative concepts and unique approaches to destination marketing.”
Livingston graduated with a bachelor of fine arts, visual communications from The University of Kansas in 2007 and has spent years developing a flair and passion for visual storytelling. Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, her career took her to Lawrence, Kansas, and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida before landing her in Denver, Colorado. Livingston’s most recent role was as the creative director at Medium Giant, a full-service marketing agency, where she worked with brand planning teams to identify and execute strong, unifying brand concepts across all advertising mediums. Previously, she has designed for diverse publications, including fine arts, weddings, pets, and city-focused magazines, as well as developing brands from scratch.
At Madden Media, Livingston will lead a dynamic creative team developing new, big ideas to deliver holistic solutions for our clients such as Visit Tampa Bay, Visit Buffalo Niagara, and South Carolina’s Hammock Coast on Team Honey Badger.
In her spare time, Livingston practices yoga, earning a yoga teacher training certification. She loves traveling of all kinds (international as well as road trips and camping with friends), concerts (especially at Red Rocks), knitting, macramé, drawing, and collaging. She lives with her husband in Denver with two fur-babies (13-year-old, three-legged dog Wayne and cat Eugene) and lots of house plant babies.
