Nick is behind Orbital, the digital-only agency based in Hamilton.  He’s had an interesting journey to where he is now, and we have a great chat about the creative process, comedy, Pokemon Go, tech… oh, and Hamilton.

Highlights

  • The advantages of small teams vs. huge agencies
  • How he’s used comedy as a way to push through social anxiety, and make people laugh at the same time
  • Pokemon Go, how augmented reality came to be, and why it works so well compared to something like Google Glass
  • Focusing on the experience vs. mass market appeal and huge growth
  • Doing the work to pursue your passion and develop your talent
