Adam Flanagan is a Brooklyn-based creative and the art director at 160over90. Adam studied at Minneapolis College of Art and Design and began his career as a graphic designer for American Eagle Outfitters. Adam join 160over90 in 2004. Over the span of his still-young career, Adam has worked on a broad range of projects, including identity development, marketing and advertising, packaging, graphic design, web design, and photography.
Adam says that he “enjoys thinking for a living,” which is a great way to describe the role of an art director. An art director thinks about look and feel, brand representation, and the emotional response of color palettes; the high level decisions. In this capacity, an art director leaves his or her thumbprint on every project. As such, a good art director makes their agency look good, and in Adam’s case this is definitely true.
Looking through Adam’s website it is easy to see how he has matured as a designer and grown into the role of art director. Being young designers ourselves, seeing Adam’s work and career path is inspiring, to say the least.
