MADN Agency is a restaurant digital marketing service founded by former hospitality professional, Mistey Nguyen.

Nguyen's extensive experience includes: pre-opening planning, operations, restaurant/event management, collateral design, website design/management, digital messaging, and photography styling working with Chicago's top chefs, industry leaders, photographers, and publicists.

Nguyen has earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts: Graphic Design from Columbia College Chicago, a diploma from Le Cordon Bleu's California School of Culinary Arts Pasadena, and fuels her creative needs through Adult Continuing Education courses at the School of The Art Institute Chicago.

Her proudest career achievement thus far was collaborating with Tanta Chicago's Executive Chef Jesus Delgado and author Leyla Moushabeck of "The Immigrant Cookbook: Recipes That Make America Great," published in December 2017. Nguyen photographed Chef Delgado's Peruvian-Thai inspired 'tiradito' featured on page 18.
