Two years ago, his business started out as a fun hobby, but now as a senior he is able to further pursue this passion and turn it into something larger. Nate designs all of his graphics himself, starting with a sketch and continuing to design in Photoshop.
His artistic talents don’t stop there, in his free time he also enjoys playing music. In the future, Nate plans on going to university for graphic design and hopes to someday start producing his own shirts and designs on his own.
