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.
