Creative Director
Rouge Events

Nathan has been designing and producing imaginative experiences for over 15 years and is known within the industry for pushing the boundaries of creative possibility. 

Founding Rouge in 2001 and in his role as Creative Director, Nathan has been behind headline events for brands as diverse as Channel 4, Google, Aston Martin and IKEA.  From bespoke activations to dreaming up Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival, there is nothing Nathan likes more than turning the imaginary into reality.    

Nathan draws inspiration from the arts and is particularly intrigued by the fusion of digital technologies with live performance.  He loves the opportunity to integrate theatre into the immersive experience.  Often on stage himself, Nathan performs regularly both in London and abroad with the London Symphony Orchestra as a member of their chorus.

Nathan is a passionate advocate of the power live experiences to both excite and engage.  Keen to share his knowledge and to help nurture the designers and producers of tomorrow, Nathan has guest lectured at Bournemouth, Surrey and UWL.

“I’m delighted to have been asked to be one of the judges at this year’s Drum Experience Awards - it’s fantastic to help shine a light on the very best creative work from colleagues across the industry.  I’ll be looking for original, intelligent, compelling designs that deliver on brief, message and client investment.”
