Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives Served Daily

Nate Duval

Nate Duval is an illustrator, printmaker and merch-maker based in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. He studied advertising design at Syracuse University where he was happy to learn “that making and selling things was a possibility for a living.”

Nate’s a one-man show – he handles everything about his business from design to delivery, all on his own. He’s worked with some big-time amazing companies like Nike and Disney and has even designed concert posters for bands like Phish, Spoon, Wilco and The Black Keys.

We discovered Nate because of his amazing Chicago-style hot dog enamel pin. Anyone who loves hot dogs enough to design a wardrobe accessory about it is automatically our new BFF. Hot diggity dog!

When he’s not designing something totally tasty, Nate enjoys bánh mì sandwiches, putting things into piles, Yelping places to eat for future travel and the number 8.

Yep, we think Nate is pretty great!
