Logos: A 30-year retrospective

Many things have changed in the last 3 decades since Brad Nelsen founded Nelsen Partners. Our world, our technology, our industry, and not to mention we have evolved a great deal during this time. With all of this, it’s not surprising that our logo and brand would evolve with it.

We hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane as we revisit our logos over the last 30 years.



We are excited to announce and celebrate our newest Associates – Lindsay Abati (LA,) Matt Beaton (MB,) and Sandra Saldaña (SS)! Lindsay, Matt, and Sandra will join our firm’s leadership team from the Austin studio. Take a minute to learn which of them doesn't like (spoiler alert!) the Eames Lounge Chair, who's a post-it addict, who's taking the whole studio to Amsterdam for a field trip, and which of them brought in some new fur-chitects into our studio. Find out more below! Warning: Don't read if you haven't had lunch.


What’s up with Nelsen Partners’ Austin Studio — Summer Projects in the works.

If you live in Austin, you probably know what summertime means; hitting Barton Springs and Deep Eddy as often as you can, Amy’s Ice Cream on the weekends, and ice-cold porch beers with friends. As we try our best to stay cool with all the amazing recreational activities, we are also hard at work getting some exciting projects ready for this fall.

Architects in the Making: Young Disciples Christian Academy

Last Friday was Field Trip day for Young Disciples Christian Academy! The students toured our Scottsdale office & saw a glimpse of our team hard at work. George Melara showed them our “Design Pin-Up” area on where the project ideas all start to come together. Our classic Sketch Session had to be part of the agenda; challenging everyone's drawing skills (the happy onions was the favorite).  Linnea, Mihir & Janelle joined in on the fun!


90 SECONDS with Gerard, Nahal, Nick, and Maria – Welcome!

We are happy to welcome our newest Austin folks: Architect Gerard D'Arcy (GD), Project Specialist Nahal Sharifi (NS), and recent undergraduates Nick Burns (NB), and Maria Berrios (MB). To all four of you; welcome to Nelsen Partners, we are so happy to have you in our team! We took a few minutes to get to know our newest team members, with summer added flare; and turns out nobody wants ice pops during the summer! Take a dive and see what these caffeine lovers shared.
