SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN (SCAD)
Adam Johnson grew up in Asheville NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Currently a senior at SCAD, he is completing his BFA in Graphic Design. Adam has always had a passion for art but it wasn’t until high school that he realized he could make it into a career. He can usually be found with his sketchbook on him at all times, jotting down a note or refining an idea. Adam’s creative process almost always starts out on paper. His unique hand-lettered typography and his deep understanding of design-related software, Adam is a well-rounded designer who has high hopes for what the future holds. After finishing his undergrad degree, Adam would like to work in the action sports world, pairing his love of snowboarding with his passion for design.Speaking of his school experience, he says: “SCAD has given me the tools and knowledge to refine my talents in the area of graphic design. My professors have encouraged me to go above and beyond so that I can excel. They have taught me, along with my fellow students, to think and talk about my work in a way that articulates the concept or process behind what I create.”
