Principal + Owner
Hailing from Topeka, Nathan attended the University of Kansas, where he began his lifelong affinity for letterforms and graphic design. A quick study at reverse-engineering of undocumented printing methods, he began creating fonts from historic samples in 1995 and established his own type foundry, Baseline Fonts, in 1999.
Nathan has spent almost two decades as a hybrid designer, constantly evolving alongside technology and industry shifts. He founded Baseline Creative in 2005 and has grown it into a full-service agency. He finds inspiration everywhere and in everyone but especially in a good cup of coffee.
On the home front, Nathan is an avid baker and enjoys printmaking and painting. He has three brilliant daughters, an amazing wife, a Catahoula Cur named Bella, a Kansas Humane Society rescue named JoJo and four cats. His favorite, over all, is orange.
