From Cowboy to Cricketeer


Camille Davis joined our team this summer after graduating from the Madison College graphic design program equipped with freelance experience for clients like Settle Down Tavern and Teatonic Kombucha. We knew she had the independent spirit to thrive in our scrappy culture. Which isn't all that surprising given that she hails from Jackson, Wyoming. Camille understands the Cowboy Code.

Camille first started creating art while she was still in diapers, and hasn’t put down the paintbrush since. After receiving her BFA from NCAD in 2008, she spent the next decade as a working artist. Wanting to be more hands-on with commercial art spurred her toward formal education in graphic design. Camille has worked with community organizations in the Madison area and beyond to create packaging design and thoughtful branding systems, along with a handful of restaurant campaigns.

In just a few months, Camille has made her mark on our team (and more importantly, our clients). She put her home state knowledge to work on an omni-channel campaign for the University of Wyoming’s College of Education, spearheading the visual identity. She designed packaging for Landmark Creamery's new award-winning cheese. And when litigation non-profit Law Forward needed help with their report analyzing anti-democratic efforts by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, Camille stepped in with a design solution that gave weight and energy to this serious issue.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Plein air painting. I throw my small travel kit in the car, drive to a remote location (usually a state park) then paint the landscape while taking in the fresh air. Trying to capture the constantly changing light and colors feels so rewarding.

What is your greatest fear?
A shark attack! Or maybe just the ocean. I'm a mountain creature.

When and where were you the happiest?
Hiking in the Tetons or in deserts in the southwest.

Who are your favorite writers?
Mary Oliver's poetry is so beautiful, and I love The River Why by David James Duncan.

Who are your heroes in real life?
Jane Goodall and David Bowie.
