Nolte is a six-gun, straight shootin’, advertising gunslinger. In a market filled with pretenders, her transparent way of doing business is refreshing. She embraces every day with the enthusiasm of an entrepreneur, solid in her industry knowledge with a competitive drive to help her clients find their authentic story. Thoughtful curiosity and a creative intuition, backed with real-world data, helps her tell the narrative of her client’s brands. When asked what her spirit animal is, she answers, a goat. It’s stubborn, smart and happy—and reverts to the wild, if left alone. When not actively seeking to spread the gospel of her clients business, she spends time with her husband, two sons and faithful furry dog babies.
A twenty-first-century oracle with a penchant for progressive thinking, Mike’s intuition compelled him to take his valuable baseball card collection and store them in a safety deposit box six hours before the Andover tornado of 1991 destroyed his home. An avid collector and restoration artist of 1940’s skip-toothed bicycles, he never misses a chance to snoop through old piles of bikes looking for a rusty work of art. In addition to crafting leather notebook covers and abstract painting, Mike is obsessed with providing valuable and breakthrough solutions for his clients while managing people in a frictionless, innovative environment.
It’s fair to say that Brian’s a passionate guy, whatever he does, he’s very much into it. Design is where he focuses this energy, starting with logo & identity work. Then any other type of design he gets the chance to inspire, influence or create through, he’s always digging into with an exuberance you have to witness to fully understand. He brings almost 3 decades of design experience, designing everything from Fortune 100 logos to some of our area’s most iconic brand identities. Brian is a consummate design visionary who attacks design problems from a multi-faceted process, with extreme attention to detail. His open-minded approach and constant curiosity are the engine that drives his consistently relevant and fresh hybrid solutions that result in true longevity for his clients’ brands. How does he spend his time outside the office? He’s a first-rate husband & soccer-Dad, that’s how. He’s an avid collector of design ephemera… no, scratch that, he’s out-of-his-head obsessed with weird, vintage, rarified & common print material – the “mini-art-pieces” we tend to look past every day. His collection is huge but the payoff is bigger, as it informs him constantly with new sources of inspiration to combine with modern sensibilities & production techniques. It’s a formula for continually creating design “works of art” that pull at our nostalgic side as they march progressively forward.
