Nathan Williams

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.

Bridgette West-Williams

Exec Director of Ops + Account Management

Bridgette brings to Baseline nearly 10 years of brand management and public relations experience in health care, higher education and the corporate world.

She wrapped up her master’s of business law from Friends University in 2015. Bridgette is putting that degree to good use by implementing new procedures that help Baseline operate more efficiently. She thinks five — if not 10 — steps ahead at all times.

Bridgette has an innate business sense that allows her to manage the more pragmatic side of a creative firm. She helps coach staff members and keeps them on task—all with a smile on her face. She helps shape our team as the hiring manager, and coaches the team daily.

She identifies as a bona fide crazy cat lady. It all started with Burt Reynolds and Frida Kahlo, brown tabby and Lynx Point Siamese respectively.

Andrea Anglin

Project Manager + Public Relations Strategist

Andrea is a graduate of Wichita State University and spent a career in public relations in the non-profit sector before coming to Baseline. Andrea is an experienced strategist, event planner, crisis communicator and writer.

She is a lifelong Wichitan except for a two-year stint in Colorado. Yes, it was beautiful. Yes, she wanted to come back to Kansas. And no, she isn’t crazy.

Andrea is a prolific reader and binge-watcher of all genres with a special place in her heart for science fiction. But the real wind beneath her wings is her family including her husband and two amazing teenagers. A rescue dog named Maggie and a hedgehog named Hershey are the pets who have her heart.

Ben Voth

Lead Developer + Senior Architect

Ben is the driving force behind all of Baseline Creative’s websites. Armed with a degree in computer science from Bethel College, Ben is an authority on all things related to databases, code and innumerable scripting languages. The Newton native has been the lead developer at Baseline Creative since 2007 and is known for being incredibly intuitive and patient with both clients and the Baseline team.

In his limited spare time, Ben enjoys lounging with his wife, Anna, and their two dogs. The Voth family recently added a baby, Hollis, to their brood including older sister, Amelia. So we’re not joking about the limited spare time.

Ben has diverse musical interests ranging from ska to his favorite jazz musician, Don Ellis. He’s always keeping the office guessing musically. He also loves BBQ, good science fiction and comic books.

Josiah Zimmerman

Senior Graphic Designer

He received a full-ride scholarship to Hutchinson Community College to study music education. “I thought I wanted to be some kind of rock star,” he admits.

He transferred to Wichita State University his junior year to earn his bachelor’s of fine arts degree with an emphasis in graphic design in 2015.

Josiah enjoys playing and writing music on guitar and drums.

Josiah is married and has a cat and a dog, Penelope and Ellie.

Hannah Nighswonger

Graphic Designer

Great design, photography, the color green, Andy Warhol, and corgis are just a few of the things Hannah is passionate about. Hannah has experience as a graphic designer in several industries including higher education, legal, and non-profit before joining Baseline. She graduated from Friends University with a BA in Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design and Studio Art and is a natural creative. Hannah channels her creativity into her diverse design work and photography.

Hannah loves Zumba and was an instructor before the birth of her son, however now, her toddler keeps her so busy that her hobbies include drinking coffee and sleeping. When she has time, Hannah enjoys taking photos for family and friends.

Hannah, like the rest of the Baseline team, has pets she adores. Stella and Ringo are Pembroke Welsh Corgis, and their names are inspired by one of the greatest bands of all time—The Beatles.

Andrew Timme

Graphic Designer

Andrew graduated from Fort Hays State University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in graphic design. He appreciates the problem-solving skills needed to reach a goal through design. He wields a mighty pen, and mouse, like a Jedi, to create beautiful and functional designs, logos and animations for clients to help elevate their brands.

Andrew’s love of comic books inspired him to get interested in art and drawing. He watches movies—science fiction is his favorite genre—and in the battle between Star Wars and Star Trek, he prefers the former. Rounding out his interests include playing board games, and he even runs a Dungeons & Dragons group! Andrew has an energetic dog named Callee and they enjoy running together to unwind at the end of the day. We haven’t confirmed yet if Callee also plays D&D but we’re not ruling that out because Andrew has great taste in hobbies, design and dogs.
