COLLEGE FOR CREATIVE STUDIES
Nick Hart states: “ I want to travel the world. I want to bring new ideas to our culture. I want to expand our way of thinking and shrink our cynical views. I see the world as a beautiful place, one in which all walks of life can be happy and appreciate one another. My mission is to bring people together to share in common values. Noble is he who helps bring mankind into the loving arms of the universe through meaningful, representations of our known reality. Design gave me purpose and presented me with a path, to help make a difference, and to bring change. I’ve made a promise to always keep my creative mind strong and healthy, so that I can stand up for what I believe in. And none of my dreams would be possible without my loving wife by my side.”
