Creative Breakfast: nclud

Wednesday / September 23 / 8:00 AM


Hump day is the perfect day to get some creative inspiration!

So grab breakfast with nclud and learn about this DC-based agency’s philosophy, and how they invest in creative talent to push the limits of strategy, UX, design, and development.

Based in Washington, D.C., nclud has been in business since 1998. In that time, they have worked with more than 400 clients, including many notable brands such as Apple, Disney, Oracle, Google, Bethesda Softworks, the GRAMMYS, the Washington Post, Amazon, NASDAQ, and Tesla. nclud has also worked with a wide array of nonprofit organizations and foundations, including the Center for Democracy & Technology, the National Skills Coalition, Education Design Lab, Habitat for Humanity, RAINN, the Carnegie Institution for Science, the UN Foundation, and the Society for Science & the Public.

Managing director Alfonso Bravo will share how nclud was born and the culture, approach, and process that makes this agency stand out. And don’t worry — we may be virtual, but you’ll still have a chance to get your questions answered by our great speaker.
