I'm Adam. I live in Chicago with my wife and dog. I collect records and enjoy keyboards and drum machines.
Gramaphone Records is a Chicago musical institution, a central hub of the city's dance music scene that's been in business more than 50 years.
I've had the honor of working at the shop since 2011. I started by pricing records and working the register and eventually worked my way up to be the techno buyer, a position I held for a few years.
Over the years I've had the opportunity to create branding, printed materials, apparel, and artwork for the shop’s record label.
Stripped & Chewed is a house-music record label I started with some of my best friends in Chicago. We press vinyl records and always lovingly hand stamp and block print our releases.
I developed our logo and branding and over the years have created countless designs for flyers, stickers, pins and more.
I've always loved creating logos and identities with custom typography and illustrations.
