Nathan Atnikov

With 10 years of experience, I lead creative teams in pursuit of the intersection where strategy meets creative. As a freelance Copywriter and Creative Director, I do what’s right for the audience (and will challenge my clients to do so, too). Working on behalf of brands of all sizes, I have seen time and time again that the best results come when the work is rooted in an understanding of the audience. With a background in copywriting and journalism, I clearly articulate a problem, uncover the audience insight, and craft a creative solution.

Nathan's Best Fit

My perfect match is a client that knows the power of understanding their audience, and meeting them where they are with a message that matches their desires and beliefs about the brand.

 Client Feedback

It is rare to find a creative director who is able to articulate audience insights and write the compelling words necessary to engage a target audience. Nathan’s work on a recent project expresses the attributes important to our audiences and is providing the creative direction needed for effective positioning. His creative leadership extends into his ability to work with multiple stakeholders at many levels of the organization—a valuable skill. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Nathan again on another project.
