Human since 1986

Hey there, Adam here. Thanks for stopping by. By day I teach courses in layout, web design, and motion graphics at a two-year technical college in western Kansas. By night I run a small multi-disciplinary graphic design firm called Wheat State Creative LLC. I am passionate about all things design, and am a proud supporter and evangelist for the application of educational technology to enhance student learning experiences.

Prior to my tenure at Northwest Tech, I worked in all aspects of the graphic design industry for six years. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Fort Hays State University, where I am currently a degree candidate in the Master of Fine Arts program. I have a cat named Valdez and a golden retriever named Lucky. In my free time I enjoy traveling, live music, disc golf, and spending time with my family. I appreciate you visiting and hope to learn more about you, too.

If you are interested in working together please drop me a line using the contact form below. And if you want more details feel free to download my resume.
