Adam Griffiths is a designer, art director and full time lecturer in Graphic Design at Manchester School of Art.
Adam runs his own design practice from Manchester and has worked with a diverse range of clients such as Red Bull Music Academy, Sony Music, JD Sport, Nightcolours Recordings, Film4, Fabric London, Space + Time Records as well as working on a range of projects as Creative Director at Sony RCA.
He has collaborated with a range of organisations including The International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Le Mundaneum Belgium and Art Licks Weekend London.
Adam's key areas of interest and research revolve around visual culture, curation, image making and self publishing within design practice.
Through a range of media, my practice occupies a cultural space between the physical and digital worlds, with a recent focus surrounding image anarchism in relation to the found image.
I'm interested in the harvesting and dissemination of digital images through online practices, re-presenting these back into the meatspace, enhancing a close familiarity between the two states.
