Nick graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a Bachelors of Studio Art focused on graphic design. Nick has been with us for 3 years and is in charge of shipping and receiving. While making sure the warehouse runs smoothly he’s been soaking up any and all kitchen design knowledge he can. Now that he’s graduated he’s excited to make the leap into the design side of things. “It’s easy to repurpose my degree as the two industries share a lot of the same basic principles. I believe that great design compromises neither aesthetic value or functionality. If we sacrifice one for the other have we really done our job as designers?” Being a great designer of any sort takes a great deal of problem solving and an eye for aesthetics. Nick has both and can’t wait to start enriching the lives of those in the Omaha metro.
