Profile

I am a Senior Designer (Print+Digital) and Problem Solver with over 17 years of commercial experience working with hundreds of clients for myself and agencies throughout my career.

I’ve built a reputation for consistently delivering exceptional design work, either by leading a team on a large project whether that be creating an intuitive app, developing a product launch site for a growing brand or producing a new brand and messaging for a new startup.

Combining brand and business thinking with expert technical knowledge, my work is always highly crafted, emotionally engaging and user friendly.

I have my own studio which is located near Sheffield, UK, where I do all my work with leading agencies globally – either in-house or remotely, as well as directly with a diverse range of clients.

Outside of work, my biggest passions in life are design, rock climbing, martial arts, photography, dance and family/friends.

If you are interested in hiring or collaborating with me, please get in touch.

Recommendations

  • Phil Barnes, Managing Director at Whitespace

    Adam is a first class designer and front end developer. I've worked with Adam on many projects and he's always been knowledgable and been a pleasure to work with. Bursting at the seams with ideas and tactics to help promote any brand or deliver the best considered solutions.

    Superbly detail orientated, innovative and careful perfectionist - Adams ideas, skills, creativity and understanding of change requests make working with him an absolute pleasure. He has extensive knowledge of all front end development best practice, software/information architecture and prototyping and crafts a mean UI!

  • Michael De Silva, Founder & CTO Inertialbox

    I’ve had the pleasure of working with Adam for almost a year at Whitespace. During this time, I’ve learned a lot about the way he approaches design and how to design well. Adam does not take short-cuts, and it is clearly evident that he takes design seriously.

    I personally feel that Adam’s capabilities are far greater than the title of ‘front-end’ tends to usually convey - he’s a fantastic creative, extremely detail oriented, and labours over each design task until they are pixel perfect. This is why his work is always impressive, and continues to gain popularity on Dribbble as well.

    If you’re looking for complete branding work from logotype, to business cards/stationary, and a unique digital identity on the web, you should have a chat with Adam. Working with him is an absolute pleasure and I look forward to continue as such into the future.

  • Chris Dykes, Team Manager at SIG

    Adam is an excellent designer who was a pleasure to work with at SIG.

    He excelled at creating marketing/brochure type websites using Wordpress along with HTML5, CSS3 and responsive frameworks.

    He worked very well alongside the other members of the team, always willing to share his ideas and knowledge, whilst also taking every opportunity to expand his own skill-set.

    I would recommend Adam to anyone looking for a talented senior designer / front end developer to join their team.

  • Peter Stannard, Managing Director at Grow Through Digital

    Adam's a creative/developer who is able to interface with clients, can see the big picture and works to client's business objective rather than just blindly bashing out a "nice" design or "clean" code. We continue to work together on projects to this day, and will for many years I'm sure.

  • Lauren Bedford, Accounts Manager at Whitespace

    Adam is a hardworking and innovative designer and front-end developer, that I have had the pleasure of working with over the past year at Whitespace. Not only is his work visually fantastic, he is also a brilliant front man to articulate the design and development process to those with lesser understanding in a professional and detailed manner.

    His passion for design shows throughout his work and his ability to challenge himself to develop new skills on a regular basis, makes Adam even more of a joy to work with. I couldn't recommend Adam highly enough!
