Celebrating 30 Years

Since NK’s beginnings in 1989, our vision has been clear – care enough to make it easy for our clients to work with NK. Care enough to develop an incredible team and workplace. Care enough to engage fully.
Our 30-year journey from a 4th bedroom startup to international branding agency has seen us perfect the art of doing a lot with a little, creating relationships that have lasted decades and creative solutions that have sparked positive outcomes across the world for our clients.

As NK turns 30, we’re taking the time to celebrate the many people, moments and stories that have set the stage for NK’s next 30 years of successes.

“I can remember driving down to Kalamazoo from Grand Rapids after meeting with the Gordon team, and thinking this could be big; really, really, big.”
