Hello, I’m Marc Adams and currently I am a freelance designer with a focus on the web and print mediums.

As a designer, I consider myself a true problem-solver. My abilities to evaluate the creative needs necessary to communicate the message in a straight-forward, artistic manner are a priority. I routinely approach projects with inventive thoughts (and coffee) that help to create the desired experience. The work that I produce is a detailed strategy of clearly understanding the main idea while exploring the relationship between the creative process and the target audience. Ultimately, I love the simplicity of constructing something new and fresh to capture the viewer.

As a front-end developer I have a solid working knowledge of XHTML/CSS, Web 2.0 standards compliant design, Flash product animations, WordPress development, experience in designing for cross-browser platforms and script frame-works such as JS, JQuery and Ajax. I also have experience in nearly all print media, ranging from large-scale publications and news print, to outdoor signage, kiosks and screen printing. I’m professional, diligent, flexible and love a good challenge.
