Facebook Picks Up Design Expertise with Bolt Peters Talent Grab

Co-founder Nate Bolt says it will officially close on June 22, after working on more than 200 projects for 90 clients, including Sony, HP, Electronic Arts and the Washington Post. Most of the company’s six employees will be joining Facebook and reporting to Design Director Kate Aronowitz.
