Nick Hayes


I am currently working as a games project designer at Mattel. My daily tasks include:
- Designing new games
- Evaluating and developing inventor submissions
- Working with licensors on co-branded and signature games
- Collaborating with overseas engineers on costing and product development
- Presenting product to buyers
- Attending trade shows

I earned a BFA in Toy Design from Otis College of Art & Design. Before that I was an engineer with the US Army where I lead a bridge crew under strict timelines in less than ideal conditions.
