What many of you may not know is that I do tend to take an interest in graphic designs every so often. I love how each artist puts in their own unique interpretations of an image or object they see. Adam is one of those designers that has a very creative outlook that can be seen in his paintings and designs. In his illustrations, he tends to blend in the sketching of various people, animals or objects and integrate some bright colours into it. This combination really does look interesting!

Have a read of his interview, he does have a funny embarassing story!!

Who’s the brains behind the designs?
I’m 21, I’m from sydney but currently live and work from Stockholm sweden, i work as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator and i paint aswell.

I work in all different disciplines from print design, to motion to illustration to art. I mainly work in the arts and music industry however i have recently been moving on to different areas like video and branding which is something im looking forward to doing more of. I like to do as much as i can, i have recently done an album cover for an american guy called desmond reed, he makes these quirky songs so i did some quirky illustrations. and I’m currently working on promo video for sony and creating artworks to show over here.

When and how did you start out?

I started studying graphic design in 2005 at the same time i started designing websites and posters for friends bands. I was also always painting then aswell, i think i wasnted to study fine arts but i kind of realised i can do both and get a diploma in graphic design to make me “Job Worthy” i guess i was playing it safe.

Was it hard to actually start producing?
No not really it all just kind of happend, i would say it was/is easy i guess i would say every thing just felt right and it still does so i will continue

What’s your inspiration behind the designs?
Every project is different as it always based on what someone wants, but i have been lucky enough to get alot of projects that i have been told to just do what i want, however sometimes this is hard as there is no starting point of as brief. I create art aswell and show in galleries as often as i can, my art has been my escape from the disciplines of design and until recently i never wanted them to be in the same place however more and more my art and design seems to be coming together into the same place. as for inspiration i am always browsing the internet, reading design magazines, going to art shows, watching and listening to music. I guess i would say that i am inspired by what is around me at the time, and at the moment because i have had to pack up my studio i am working alot with graphite and gouche, im working on a series or artworks based losely around viking mythology and chaos, they are coming along nicely

What did you do before you began designing?
before i started designing hmm well im only 21 so there isnt much i did, i just surfed all the time, i worked as an electrician for a little bit before i started studying and quite quickly realised it wasnt for me.

Any advice for aspiring artists?
do what ever feels right

Any big plans in the near future?
Yeah i would really like to start working in a studio, or find a studio to work from, its getting quite lonely working by myself all the time. Im planing for an exhibition here in stockholm. And just make pictures basicly

What’s the most embarrassing/awkward situation you’ve been in?
