I am Adé (pronounced ah-dae, hence my moniker), and I am a graphic designer. I am a Chicago transplant from North Carolina. I graduated from UNC Charlotte where I earned my BFA with a concentration in graphic design. I consider myself a "Southern Boy" at heart. Although I no longer have my delicate southern drawl, where I am from is definitely a part of me. As a graphic designer, I have the wonderful job of blending the beautiful with the practical. Doing more than pushing pixels, I get to take ideas and turn them into something physical. I consider myself a very technical designer. With a background in engineering and drafting, I have learned to use the tools at my disposal to best aid me in my creative process. Each design has its own set of unique challenges, and the key to any successful design is learning to balance them all.
I truly enjoy designing and the process it involves. I just want to create.
