Head of Strategy - Local Projects

Nathan Adkisson is Associate Creative Director and the Head of Strategy at New York based design firm Local Projects.  Nathan tackles challenging design problems with a simple philosophy — you can create enduring, personal experiences by putting your audience in charge. He recently launched Open House, Target's concept store for the Internet of Things, and ARoS Public, a transformative reimagination of the art museum in Aarhus, Denmark. His other clients include the American Museum of Natural History, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Presidio of San Francisco, the National Mall, filmmaker Ken Burns, IBM, Crayola, Belvedere, Chobani, and Google. Before becoming a designer, he began his career as a journalist, and published work in CNN, Money magazine, and the Austin-American Statesman.
