Senior Innovation Leader Speaks on Pushing Boundaries
Nick Cienski, Principle Creative at Under Armour
Nick Cienski, the principle creative at Under Armour for all things on the innovation team, visited the Utah State University campus to present a special lecture to students about his work. Cienski shared a wealth of experiences from his time at various companies including Salomon, Helly Hansen, Arc’teryx, and currently Under Armour.
Cienski was the primary force behind a recent collaboration between Under Armour and space company, Virgin Galactic, to create a new kind of space suit for commercial passengers. Cienski’s work focuses on extreme environments and pushing the limits of how new materials can take humans to the highest peaks or the final frontier.
