Alumnus Combines Culinary and Graphic Art

Nagel (Petoskey News-Review)

Drake Nagel ('12 BFA) puts his graphic design skills honed at NMU to work on behalf of his two culinary ventures: Happy's Taco Shop in Petoskey; and a food truck business that extends to Traverse City. In a Petoskey News-Review artist profile, Nagel said cooking is his first love, but he also recognizes the importance of establishing a brand through a logo and other visual elements. So he has combined both talents, creating a number of menu boards for the food trucks and designs for available merchandise offered through the company. Nagel began on this path while attending NMU, where he started doing freelance graphic design work for bands and the restaurant where he worked. Read his full profile here
