I'm Adrien - a Creative Director and designer with an architectural background. I love everything about the modern, minimal design aesthetic from Bauhaus and De Stijl, to Swiss/International and Material Design. Less is more, and form follows function.
That appreciation and my Human Centric design-thinking governs my typographic and visual design decisions for all my web & mobile ui/ux projects, interactions and animations. Even my music choices are often minimal and ambient.
With my solid industry experience; first in Austin and now in Seattle, I know how to help clients solve real business problems and achieve their goals.
I also curate a creative experiment known as Slow Shutter Speed for architecture, art, and music.
What's up with the Ravens?
Some of my ancestors originated on the Island of Corvo in the Azores. Corvo means "Crow" in Portuguese, and my father would call out "Hello brother Crow," whenever he would see a "Murder of Crows" hanging around. He always considered them good luck.
I find the large, black birds fascinating as well. Crows and Ravens are highly intelligent, and have the ability to recognize faces and use tools. They are also able to teach those skills to their offspring.
