RINGLING COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
Unlike many other creatives, Adam Myerscough was never drawn to art or design in his youth. Favoring a career in business but carrying a passion for working with artists, he faced a difficult decision about where and how to continue his education after high school. Seemingly by chance, or maybe destiny, he ended up at Ringling College of Art and Design and fell in love with the world of graphic design. Adam is enamored with the possibilities that design has to offer and always pushes himself to try new things. He strives to learn everything he can about designing for different platforms and mediums. One day, Adam hopes to share what he has learned and teach others about graphic design at a university.
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL INSPIRED?
I get my inspiration from the little parts of day-to-day life. Whether it’s looking at packaging at the grocery store, talking with other designers, or even just watching tv, I am always amazed and inspired by the creativity that surrounds me.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS OR CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
If there were no barriers or constraints, I would design systems and user interfaces for video or board games. I grew up playing games and have met some of my best friends through our shared hobby. It would be really rewarding knowing that I have a part in an activity that brings people together.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
Working on projects is much more fun when I’m listening to my favorite music. My go-to playlist right now consists of a lot of alternative rock bands and many local artists. Over the past summer, I also made a goal to watch every episode of The Simpsons. After watching an episode or two every day since then, I’m not even halfway finished!
