About Me

Nick Boes

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

I am a visual designer and animator originally from Northwest Ohio and based in Los Angeles with over 10 years of experience in the industry. I am a passionate creative that leads by example with a hands-on approach. I believe design is earned. An idea, a concept, a masterpiece is only as powerful as the message it is able to carry. I work alongside my team no matter the situation or limited time to teach. I seek to inspire, and build the best work possible. I am a critical thinker and problem solver that takes a holistic approach to every project, making sure every aspect of it gets produced at the highest quality.

Currently, I'm the Creative Director at Superformula. Superformula is a modern, full-stack digital product & creative studio.

Previously, I lead a growing team in efforts across a variety of advertiser categories / solutions as well as internal marketing efforts as the Group Creative Director at HYFN in Playa Vista, California. Over 4 years I helped grow a creative team of less than ten to a team of almost twenty that has produced work for the likes of UFC Gym, HP, Frito-Lay, Sky Zone, Macy’s, TRX, Vita Coco, and more. Prior to that at Ignition Creative, I helped establish and grow an interactive team from a three-person boutique to one of the world's premiere Interactive Agencies.
