Meet Our Team

 
Nick  Owner/Founder  After graduating from the University of Colorado, he spent his formative years as an artist creating large-scale digital illustrations and giant traditional paintings in his art studio in Denver, Colorado. Working alongside some of Denver's most talented artists, he made a name for himself as one of the top artists in his region, winning numerous awards and being featured in dozens of art exhibitions and magazines. He had used software intended for large format design to create complex hand-drawn digital art pieces for years, making his transition into large format printing much easier than usual. He quickly learned to masterfully straddle the lines between graphic design and art, speaking both languages fluently. It is this bilingual nature that has lead him to make some of the industry's most talked about artistic designs and "art cars," combining his signature illustration style with his technical design knowledge. After over 15 years of working in the large format world on some of the most complex and artistic projects around, he started PUREBLIND as an artistic creative studio that can create anything, for any client.

Collin  Production Specialist  Collin grew up in the panhandle of Texas. He moved to Colorado when he turned 22, and started his career in vinyl as an installer. He spent a couple of years learning the field before making the switch to working at PUREBLIND. Although Collin only has a few years under his belt in the industry, he's a bit of a prodigy. So much so that we hired him on as our Production Lead. His life long interest in photography helps fuel his passion for the outdoors, and he can typically be found on the back country trails of the mountains nearly every weekend with his two dogs and girlfriend.

Kyle  Sales Manager  The day after graduating at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, he high tailed it to the State of Colorado to become a Whitewater rafting guide in the summers in Buena Vista and a dog sledding guide in the winter up in Steamboat Springs working with 115 huskies. Some of which would eventually run the worlds toughest race the Iditarod. He has a passion for the outdoors but is more interested in helping others achieve their goals. After leaving the outdoors he jumped into a career of sales and for the past 6 years has been loving every minute of it. Finding a connection, providing the best possible service, and leaving the customer in a better position to succeed are a few of the joys he finds in working with the PUREBLIND Team.
