I was born and raised in Oklahoma City and am a member of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma. I received my BFA in Graphic Design from Atlanta College of Art in Georgia. I worked in Atlanta for eight years as a Senior Designer/Art Director creating print and interactive projects for a variety of clients in different industries, ranging from local start-ups to the Fortune 500. In 2011, I founded Nishology, my signature art and apparel brand with a mission to perpetuate Caddo art and culture by creating contemporary artwork and apparel that reference elements of my ancestors’ pottery and designs. I currently live in my hometown of Oklahoma City, working as an independent visual artist and freelance graphic designer. ~ Chad Nish Earles
