Designer with a mission and a conscience
With creative yin and tech yang, Nate uses new media kung-fu to create interactive media that people can relate to.
With a decade’s experience across branding, design and interactive, Nate assemblies form, space, color, type and motion, through the lens of strategic communications. With an extensive creative portfolio across rich-media widgets, websites, ads and e-mails, brands and brochures — and an enthusiasm for game-changing ideas and technology — for over forty extraordinary clients, including Barack Obama’s Presidential Transition Team, Transportation for America, the Institute for Policy Studies, and of course, IB5k — Nate creates from concept to product, rich media that serves purpose.
From 2006–2008, Nate served as the Director of Online Communications at the Institute for Policy Studies think-tank in Washington, until leaving for a calling to join Barack Obama’s Presidential Campaign as the campaign’s only Interactive Ad Designer (where he designed the first-ever in-video-game presidential ads; an interactive web presentation that made complex tax policies easy to understand; and a tax-cut calculator that was among the most successful of Obama’s highly trafficked ads.)
Among pro-bono and life-learning pursuits, Nate served as photojournalist in a Colombian human rights delegation, IT support for a Camden, NJ school reform campaign, case worker and after-school program director for a Washington, D.C. international housing shelter, and editor/producer on a nationwide video for the Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee.
