Adam Margolis

Foxborough, MA, USA
I am a graphic and digital designer who is confident and professional in creating versatile, practical, and functional designs.

Graduated in the Spring of 2011, Cum Laude, as a dual Major in both Graphic Design and Digital Media from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. I have had the honor to learn from some of the most prestigious minds in visual design.

In my downtime I look for innovative and current branding/design. I enjoy life in the outdoors (ie. hiking, kayaking, camping, fishing, swimming, boating, etc) as well as hanging out with my friends and co–workers. I am a strong believer that social media will make the world a better place and my life more productive. Also, I work well with groups of people and having tasks done on time, in an organized manner.
