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 amazingly effervescent wife, a Golden Retriever named Betty, a Kansas Humane Society rescue named JoJo, and a menagerie of cats—acquired by his wife and daughters. His favorite, over all, is orange.
Bridgette puts her masters of business law, and bachelor's degree in public relations and political science, to good use by implementing procedures and protocols 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 applicants will earn some unofficial bonus points if they've read this far and understand who to reach out to about opportunities with Baseline.
She identifies as a bona fide crazy cat lady. It all started with the late Burt Reynolds and his littermate Frida Kahlo, brown tabby and Lynx Point Siamese respectively, and now includes Schwarz the orange tabby and Phoenix the tiny tuxey. Her canine companions, Betty White the Golden Retriever, and JoJo effervescent American Shelter Dog round out her fur squad.
