HEY. PATRICK MACOMBER IS A DESIGNER / CREATIVE DIRECTOR / STRATEGIST / CONSULTANT WHO BUILDS BRANDS / PRODUCTS / PROCESSES / TEAMS.
Patrick is a creative problem solver residing in Philadelphia, PA. He currently leads a phenomenal team of designers, writers, researchers, and strategists at 160over90. Previously he helped grow 1TrickPony, a scrappy branding studio, into a full service, strategically driven agency. As the company grew from 10 people to nearly 70, he helped craft everything from award winning podcast apps, to business-class applications, to strategic platforms for music festivals. He was educated at University of North Texas, then began honing his skills at Eisenberg & Associates and Gensler Studio 585, focusing on retail branding and interior design.
As a creative director, he blurs lines between design, strategy, and voice to invent and reinvent well-rounded and unexpected brands and products. He encourages those he leads to approach problems similarly—as questions that need help finding their answers.
