Bonjour, y'all! My name is Adam. Travel, linguistics, logo design, Harry Potter, and my cat, Ramsay, are a few things that I love.
I'm originally from Tennessee, but I relocated to Michigan six years ago after accepting an offer to teach French at Michigan State University, where I obtained a Master of Arts in French Language and Literature. Before that, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from the University of Tennessee at Martin.
For nearly four years, I was Creative Director at Skyline Outdoor Advertising in East Lansing, Michigan where I learned to tailor my design style to suit my clients' needs. I worked with such diverse clients as the City of Lansing, the Michigan State and Pittsburgh Football programs, Dart Container Corporation, Salt Yoga, and countless more.
In December 2019, I accepted the position of Administrative Assistant at Michigan Virtual, where I support the Learning Research Institute and Instructional Product Development teams by arranging travel, assisting in budget and contract management, and aiding our course developers and researchers in whatever ways I can.
In addition to my post as Administrative Assistant I'm also Adjunct French Instructor at Olivet College, teaching introductory French courses. My classes are highly communicative in nature. Even from day one of French 101, I speak as little English as possible in the classroom.
Below, you will find my design portfolio. If you like what you see and want some for yourself, reach out! I'm always accepting new clients!
Thanks for stopping by!
