Adam Hayes is a typographer, letterer and illustrator. He works on a broad range of projects from quick editorial illustrations to large-scale international campaigns, preferring to create designs that are new and unique each time. He loves a brief.
Since his graduation from the Royal College of Art in 2006 he has developed a solid roster of clients that includes Absolut, Apple, British Airways, Capital One, Ernst & Young, Ford, IBM, the L.A. Marathon, Nike, Unilever, and the V&A Museum – whilst also devoting time to personal projects.
Adam creates all of his work by hand. His typical working method is to produce lots of quick pencil sketches as reponse to a project brief, often drawing over and over to capture the best design approach. He develops these sketches into refined ink drawings, before manipulating and adding colour in Photoshop.
Adam lives and works in Wales with his partner, Sarah Bridgland and their two kids. When not in the studio Adam can be found either mountain biking in the hills, hiking over the moors or embarking on a family adventure.
