A little bit about nathan
Nathan has been involved in interactive design and development since 1995. He used early multimedia packages as an alternative delivery method to print, while working on his Higher National Diploma, and presented final concepts on screen rather than on paper.
After landing a job as a junior at a local print agency Nathan soon found himself in at the deep end when the agency blagged the contract to produce the Virgin Global Challenger web site for Richard Bransons round the world hot air balloon attempt. However he managed to swim pretty well actually, and played an instrumental role over the next 4 years in establishing Designation as a well respected creative solutions provider for small to medium sizes Businesses.
During his time at Designation Nathan spoke at a conference in London, to company directors from the Virgin group, on the benefits of the web in business. He also produced interactive work for clients such as De La Rue, Nortel, Agfa and Yellow Pages.
While at TMB Marketing & Communications Nathan evolved his motion design skills, gained through work with products such as Macromedia Flash, and produced and art directed a number of short video pieces using tools such as Adobe After Effects.
At Mirashade (now Dunwoody) Nathan continued to develop his new media skills, adapting to new programming and database languages such as PHP and MySQL, and assisting in the design and development of a Content Management System used to deliver sites such as grownupgreen.org.uk.
After a short stint at a local creative agency (Bite CP) as Head of New Media, Nathan finally bit the bullet and decided to ‘go it alone’ setting up a digital media design & development agency with his wife Joanne.
In addition to his work Nathan maintains an active role in the design & development community through this site and social networking platforms such as Twitter. Nathan also runs a regular monthly social event for local creatives in the Berkshire area called Creative Assembly.
