Nelson Kunkel's Summary

I have been a professional creative thinker, designer and problem-solver for over 19 years -- and non-professionally since I can ever remember. Within me is an unsatisfied burning desire to create, to build and to make things better. With this, I have consulted with Fortune 50 companies, built agencies, created brands and spent the better half of age eight naively attempting to turn my grandmother's 13-inch black and white television into a color monitor. I ruined it, by the way, save a single, potentially (but unverified) greenish line across the middle of the screen.

In 1994 myself and two other visionary souls (now famed entrepreneurs David Kidder and Steve Skewes) founded an interactive design studio tragically named: Net-X. Propelled by a drive to understand this new digital frontier and an odd and illusive partnership with Silicon Graphics, we became a success known for web-authoring software services on the backs of clients such as Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, Ray Ban and Young & Rubicam. In March of 1996, we sold Net-X to Target Vision and thus began a love affair with building businesses.

Since then, I have spent an obsessive amount of my life daydreaming about how to improve the world around me.

Along the way, I've worked with and learned from some unique characters, including James Wondrack (who taught me about the art of detail, the purpose of things and the awareness of physical objects in a flat mediums), Dave Rollert (from whom I am reminded to always be curious, even in the face of corporate thinking), Karen Dawson (who believes in leading gracefully and taught me to find inspiration in everything), Tony Fross (who is still teaching me about the human world and the art of communication) and Giles Dickerson (who teaches us all to connect with what we do and stay away from that which is not authentic).
