Recommendations 


"Nate Williams is one of the most innovative thinkers I've worked with in thirty years of business in the creative space. He looks at every problem with vigor and opportunity to define provocative solutions that clients fall in love with. He is boundless with his vision for creative thinking and one of those rare individuals who naturally sees possibilities instead of limits. He consistently stands at the door of sparking new horizons both for clients and internal staff. That spark is infectious for all those that hang with him in any capacity. I highly recommend his talent and dearly miss his presence at Struck!!"

"Nate has been an amazing creative here at Struck for the past 2 years and a true pleasure to collaborate with.  Everyone that has had the opportunity to hang with Nate knows that he is one of the most innovative thinkers out there; always coming up with new ways to solve our clients (and Struck's) problems. Not only is he a thinker, he figures out how to get stuff done. He has become an expert in Sketchup Pro, Cinema 4D, and has developed a new love and appreciation for architectural / industrial design.

Big thanks to Nate for all his amazing work that he's helped produce / design / illustrate / render during his stint here, ranging from Nickelodeon to Glasses.com, but it's not just about work with Nate, he is  just a great vibe to have around. You'll truly be missed n8w! "
