Adam Islaam

Visual communicator, art director, problem solver, illustrator, typographer, photographer and all around typical graphic designer.

The thing I love most about design is exploring and combining numerous creative disciplines to create something unique. Branding, editorial, illustration are just some of the aspects of graphic design that make being a jack of all trades so exciting. Working within such a huge family allows design to flourish in many formats rather than live within a silo.

Over the past 10 years I’ve come to believe that design projects are much like you and I; unique and sometimes complicated. I apply this thinking to my design process, finding solutions to problems by exploring the quirks and special individual elements (through research and informed experimentation) to deliver striking designs and projects.

If you have a design challenge, I can help. Get in touch.
