I work with clients in a variety of industries on many exciting projects including full corporate branding packages, web design/development, and photography. I help my clients outshine their competitors with effective branding and marketing solutions. For example:

  • Odama Realty – Designed the entire branding package for Odama Realty, a residential realty firm in Davis, CA. In this ongoing role, I work on projects such as logo design, business cards, letterhead, open house/yard signage, binder/folder designs, and banners. I also create packaging designs for various promotional items.
  • Riebes Auto Parts – Designed promotional pieces and marketing materials for various events, including posters, banners, and flyers.
  • "Nate always seeks to fully understand the culture, mission and vision of my firm. He has helped me understand that branding is not just about people remembering my firm when they need my services, but making an impact on those I serve. He is creative, patient and detail-oriented with each project he takes on, whether it is designing a new logo or submitting artwork for a promotional item."
  • "Nate is a great asset to our marketing department at Riebes Auto Parts. He showcases our products with clean, bold designs that expand our marketing reach and drive sales. He is quick to understand our marketing goals and turns around projects quickly and efficiently. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for any freelance design project."

about me

Hi, I'm Nate. When it comes to design projects, I'm a fan of problem solving, minimalist layout, clean code, and smooth usability. I take pride in just making things look good.

As it happens, I'm proudly familiar with nerdy typographical terms such as "river" and "orphan."

Lastly, I have people skills. I am good at dealing with people!*
