Meet the Team: Nathan
I’m excited to have recently joined the Redhotblue team in a Marketing and Communications capacity. I grew up in Brisbane, and after spending the past few years is Melbourne living and studying moved up to Mackay last year. I’ve worked as a graphic designer in the print industry and freelance for a number of years and have studied both marketing and design at a tertiary level.
Why Marketing? After working in graphic design, I became drawn to the strategy behind the creative and Marketing became the natural progression. Being able to combine the creative aspects with the strategic elements of marketing is the real drawcard for me. Some of the strategic areas that are of particular interest to me are the areas of brand development and management.
I have an active interest in a diverse range of disciplines from product design, architecture and all way to the social sciences. Some of my favourite creative influences are people such as Dieter Rams, Frank Lloyd Wright, Adrian Fruitiger and Eric Spiekermann among others.
I’m quite the introvert and need to recharge by getting into nature and going camping, hiking and fishing. Last Christmas, I walked the 6 day overland track in Tasmania which was an amazing experience. We’re pretty spoilt with the environment here in the Mackay region and can’t wait to get out there and explore more this year.
It’s been great to meet some of our clients over the past few weeks and look forward to meeting more of you in the coming weeks.
