Madison Sacramone is an award-winning designer on a mission to change the world by design. Growing up in New York, she wanted nothing more than to share her compassion and channeled this through storytelling in her art. When the question of college came about during her junior year of high school, she began a journey to discover what she wanted to do. Assisted by her mother, she started an online Fair Trade & Handmade boutique to work with global artisans worldwide.
Her passion for human connection and wellbeing led her to pursue her undergraduate degree in Interior Design at The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), where many of her projects evaluated sustainability and people-centric design. Through her experiences at SCAD, Madison grew as an artist and designer, especially from her time studying in Lacoste, France. During her time abroad she found a new appreciation for travel and began to look at the natural and built environment differently.
Since graduating from SCAD, Madison has been awarded for her sustainable innovation in her senior Capstone design project both by her university and by the American Society of Interior Designers ASID for the Joel Polsky Prize. She has also been recognized for her achievements by the European Design Awards and the ASID Portfolio Competition.
Madison went on to pursue a degree at the University of Edinburgh in; MSc Advanced Sustainable Design. Whilst studying she continued to hone her focus on human connection and environmental wellbeing through design. Her dissertation as well as her most recent projects explore the theory of urban acupuncture and the value it has to regenerate cities as a design practice.
