The Team

Carolyn McHale, Art Director / User-Centric Designer / La Jefaboldface design carolyn mchale

Carolyn’s a banding expert who really enjoys digging deep into what makes your business unique and isn’t afraid to ask the hard questions to find out your company’s ethos. She’ll often remind you that your brand needs to resonate with your customers.

Her background includes branding, digital, web and print design, presentations and WordPress development. She constantly updates and refines her skills, keeping current of tech and design trends.

Some of Carolyn’s design achievements include winning the vote in NBC’s contest to design U.S. gold-medalist skier Lindsey Vonn’s helmet and designing country music artist Vince Gill’s High Lonesome Sound website.

Her volunteer design work has included the HERA Foundation, which holds climbing fundraising events to fight ovarian cancer, and Girls Education International, who send girls to school in Pakistan and Liberia.

Carolyn has shaken Jimmy Carter’s hand, climbed mountains in Mexico and rocks in Majorca; she’s been within 50′ of a grizzly bear while in the backcountry and owned the coolest cat ever, Björn (Swedish for “bear”). She speaks bad French (and worse Spanish), but makes a mean bowl of chili.

Nathan Johnson, Senior Web Developer / Programmer / Data Nerd

With a background in mathematical meteorology, Nathan has been working with large data sets and statistics since graduate school. His programming background started when he was 10 with BASIC, and progressed to C, C++, C#, javascript and most recently, PHP. He’s also fluent with HTML and CSS. As a hobby, he wrote a WordPress plugin that tracks snowfall predictions in Colorado from 5 different forecasters; it also does some statistics on the data to verify and validate the predictions.

Nathan started doing development work with Boldface when he moved to Colorado in 2013. He likes snowboarding, climbing and biking, but he loves a really great stout.

Cristina Twigg “Twigg”, Senior Copywriter / Trilingual Wanderluster / Beertender Supreme

Daughter of a Brazilian Diplomat, born in DC, and having called 7 different countries home, Cristina Twigg (call her Twigg, please) is a copywriter who generates results. It was her ability to manipulate words that got her noticed during her days as a Junior Copywriter. She’s been at it ever since, articulating the needs of clients in a range of industries including new tech, health & wellness, media, pharmaceuticals, and food & beverage.

She writes effective copy for websites, new campaign launches, apps, pitch decks and more. She enjoys the challenge of building social media presences from nothing, and has written her fair share of blogs, newsletters, and highly-technical video scripts.

Twigg’s an independent worker with excellent communication skills, who’s always eager to take on a new challenge. Her powerful imagination and an ability to foster camaraderie and team love in the workplace make her a joy to work with.

To avoid being an isolated writer in the attic, Twigg keeps herself sane and social by pouring pints of Colorado’s finest beers a couple of nights a week. On other nights, she keeps herself sane by drinking some of those beers, playing countless board games, and hosting movie nights in her basement-projector room.
