A Short Introduction
Hello, my name is Tim Nyman. I'm a Creative Director, Multimedia Designer, Front-End Developer and Video Producer with a 15-year track record of delivering results—across all channels, online and off.Here’s what I bring to the table:
A college job in a print shop introduced me to the behind-the-scenes miracles that bring publications to life. I knew then I wanted to be a part of this dynamic process. Next stop: a design and project management gig that helped me learn how to serve client needs—within budget and with deadlines in mind. A subsequent post at an advertising agency introduced me to the delights and demands of web design. The workout continued at my next job at the University of Denver, where I served as an art director and creative manager in the institution’s in-house creative services agency. There, I mentored younger designers and worked with high-performing teams to recruit students, raise funds and support a well-known brand.
From my earliest experiences as an html front-end designer, I was romanced by the web’s potential. I worked for a short time as a flash designer for Warrior athletics equipment at Vivid Design and Engrain. And Since then, I’ve been developing user-friendly websites using the best content-management programs, html and CSS 3 practices. Experience with E-commerce complete with A/B testing, analytics/metrics along with savvy awareness in the psychology of UX design, leading to a buyers experience with an outcome increasing the companies bottom-line.
While part of the team at Blue Fusion, a Denver-based print-, web- and video-production company, I discovered a passion for the moving image. Ours was a small shop, so I learned how to direct, produce, edit and create animated graphics. Using Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, After Effects and Cinema 4D, I worked on web and television projects that shared important stories. Long form video sales letters and video graphics for E-commerce at my most recent position. My portfolio includes everything from a PBS environmental show and numerous television pitch packages to two poker main event shows.
