About Me

Hello, I'm Nate Manchester.

I like to create things that people enjoy using.

My current position is Creative Director, Experience Design at Team One. I oversee Team One's UX practice and head the Experience Design team. I'm responsible for developing and directing the human-centric design mission at Team One.

Previously I was Director of UX at CAKE, a real-time analytics software service. I lead CAKE's design team on initiatives including user research, UI and interaction design, data visualization, front-end development, and online marketing.

Prior to joining CAKE I spent three years at Innocean where, as the Director of UX, I was responsible for UX and UI design on a number of successful advertising projects for Hyundai, and for managing a team of UX professionals.

I’ve been working with digital media since 1994, and have spent time working and learning at innovative companies including Wired, Organic, Wunderman, and Deloitte. During that time, I've been fortunate to have been a part of several talented teams that have earned industry recognition and a number of awards.
