our

history

01

Founding.

Nathan Imperiale and Josh Shultz recognize good ideas ahead of their time. From campaigns to cocktails, their client-focused approach to deliver creative that eschews the status quo has been road-tested since 2007. Volumes could be written about the sweat equity and extraordinary lengths they’ve gone to over the years to support clients, but their modesty and discretion will keep those stories untold.

02

Culture.

Recall the best dinner party you’ve ever attended. The one where strangers become friends and friends become family. Where the conversation flows as freely as the wine and the energy around the table is electric.

03

Alexandria.

Steps from the Potomac River in Old Town Alexandria, in a century old grain warehouse NJI’s headquarters provides a backdrop for collaborative, boundary-pushing work in a space and community that value history, innovation, and work-life balance.

04

London.

On the banks of Camden Lock, our London office brings the breadth and depth of NJI to clients across continents and markets. More than a time zone advantage, the UK office expands the team’s food and beverage options— a critical ingredient to our creative success.

If a Texan, a talented chef, and a panda walked into a bar…you’d have three members of our leadership team and your next round covered. We can dazzle you with our diplomas and experience, but it’s our team’s humanity that makes us one-of-a-kind.
