Exclusive Interview with Nate Maydole

Nate Maydole of Visumm Media is no stranger to large projects, but when a national Igloo cooler project called for an interactive graphic display made entirely out of coolers, he turned to Minnesota School of Business – Richfield and IPR for help.

Maydole worked with Sam Kovar, creative media director of career services at Minnesota School of Business – Richfield and Norbert Kreuzer from IPR to hire five grads and to use one of MSB’s studios to design the interactive display that would be replicated at a trade-show in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“We were happy to see IPR graduates get involved on the audio side of the project. We’ve always been excited about the possibility of IPR and MSB-Richfield  connecting through a creative relationship, and this project was a perfect match. I think it really speaks to the level of education both schools provide our students, and I think it also opens the doors to future collaborative efforts. The Igloo Experience project was an excellent real world opportunity for our graduates to exercise their sound design chops,” Christian Groves, Communications/Community Relations Specialist at IPR said.

List of grads who worked on the project:

  • Beth Anderson (Richfield DV Grad) – Visual Design
  • Scott Adkins (Richfield DV Grad) – Visual Design
  • Zachary Van Heel (recent Richfield DV Grad) – Production Assistant
  • Daniel Schlueter (IPR Grad) – Sound Design
  • Ethan Shiell (IPR Grad) – Sound Design
