Tori Troutman

I hate technology.

We didn’t have the internet at home until I was 14, I bought my first car at 15 before my first phone.

I love art.

On any given day in high school you could find me in the art room, clay on my hands, glass in my skin, scratched from wires, paint on my face… I had taken nearly every art class my small school had to offer (some even twice). Then I took a graphic design class and I remember saying “I couldn’t be a graphic designer because I could NEVER sit at a desk on a computer all day!”, I was convinced it was never meant to be.

Born in 1998, raised in the middle-of-nowhere Iowa, some call me an old soul.

I saw tech as the end of face to face interactions and genuine human interaction. In my mind there was no way these two worlds could coexist. I thought graphic designers were reclusive, nerdy, hunch backed, bug eyed, pale skinned cave creatures (not unlike Gollum).

Eventually, I came around to computers and the internet, they were a gateway to a world full of things to learn and places to see. In college I learned that graphic design blends art, tech, and human interaction. I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Illustration from Iowa State University in 2021.

Here I am at 24, the ring leader of the nerdy, hunch backed, bug eyed, pale skinned cave creatures at Nexus 6.

Cam Naylor

I am a huge people person and I love inspiring others to be their best! Seeing clients faces when they feel they finally have an understanding of how each piece protects them makes my day! I am so fortunate to work in an industry where I can help make a difference in the lives of others.

After spending nearly 17 years in the gaming industry, my path changed course and I found myself back in college at Iowa State University (Go Clones!), and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Liberal Studies. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and best friend, Jennifer and our 3 kids. I have a passion for swimming and love officiating for USA Swimming in my off-time.

If you have a story you’d like to share, I would love to hear them! My door is always open. I love to help an empower others and listening is the first and biggest step. Don’t just be “good” out there, be “awesome”!

Frequently asked questions

A computer.

But, no seriously, we use Wordpress. It’s widely used, open source, and easy to host anywhere if you ever decide you hate us.

We work with companies from all industries that are all sizes. Our requirements for working together is simple. We don’t hate each other and we believe that we can provide real results.

Yes we do. From capturing the footage to editing it into its final form, all our work is done here.

Hell yes you do. We get it, some companies will write you a blog but claim that they own the content as a way to retain your business, that’s bullshit and we don’t play that game. It’s yours to keep once you’ve paid for it.

Firstly, there is no cost to meet with us and talk about what we can do for you. Second, each and every quote is custom. We don’t prepackage anything. We can however say that our base rate is a hell of a lot lower than most you will find out there.

Apart from having implications in the movie Blade Runner (where the company gets its name) we ourselves are somewhat of a unicorn in the fact that we offer a fair price for top tier services. We pretty humble, regardless of how many awards we’ve won.
