-Profile-

– Logos & Illustration – Print, Web & Typography – Motion Graphics, Storyboarding & Photography.

The son of a Spanish Literature professor father and Fine Artist mother, Adrian has keen abilities of critical thinking and designing graphics with stunning visuals. He has an ever present curiosity, both in design and in life, to find the balancing point between Utility and Pleasure, Substance and Style or as the ‘Designer’ would put it, “Function and Form.”

This Santa Barbarian received his Associates Degree from S.B.C.C. in Multimedia Arts and Photography. He then studied abroad in Havana, Cuba before receiving his B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the California Institute of the Arts. After graduating Adrian ventured into the Motion Graphics field in LA-LA Land (Los Angeles) where he freelanced with Motion Theory and designed for various fortune 500 companies including Comcast, Honda, Nintendo, NCAA and AT&T before relocating to San Diego. In SD, Adrian volunteered with AIGA and worked in the Marketing department at Callaway Golf in graphic design and creative direction. Most recently Adrian has moved to Charleston, SC and continues to practice design and visual communication focused on Print, Branding, UX design and responsive web design.

Favorite Quote:

“There has been a long and continuing feud in design between style and content, from and function, and even pleasure and utility, to which Charles Eames answered. “Who would say that pleasure is not useful?”

Mr. Keedy, Style is not a four letter word
