As Lead Creative Technologist, Messier collaborates closely with the design teams, facilitates research and development efforts and helps build out complex projects by simplifying their systems. “I’m excited that HUSH works on spatial experiences that take into consideration a multitude of disciplines including sound, creative technology, architecture, and design,” explains Messier. “I’ve followed HUSH for many years and was really attracted to how the projects were able to seamlessly incorporate creative technology, without overstating it – it’s difficult to find a studio that successfully balances it all.”
Messier also has experience working at Deloitte as a Strategy and Operations Consultant, focusing on understanding a client’s business needs and providing them with exceptional solutions. This business acumen, entrepreneurial spirit and a love for tech, engineering and design led her to co-found blink blink – creative circuit kits that provide children with the necessary tools to engineer their own arts, crafts, and fashion projects with the inclusion of technology. Her talents have resulted in widespread recognition from the New York Design Awards, UX Awards and a slot as a South by South Lawn Fellow.
According to HUSH Founding Partner David Schwartz, “Nicole is exactly the kind of person we strive to hire. We’re so luck to have her on the team as her diverse background demonstrates a multitude of talents that span many levels of design and technology.”
