BIO

Hello. I'm Adam.

Southwood Co. is a place that I created in my second year of university as an online collection of my work. A place where I could showcase something I had done at uni, work or as a freelancer.

 

As a designer, I aim to push boundaries, to try new things, and to create something that can have a positive effect on people.

 

I've always seen myself as a creative, though it isn't the only road I've followed. Straight after finishing high school, I was accepted into an engineering degree at uni with a scholarship. I thought because I was good at maths and science it meant that that was what I had to do. Throughout my first year, I found myself constantly seeking out freelance design jobs or looking for more and more things to keep my creative juices flowing. That's when I had the realization that I was destined for design.

 

AND I HAVE NEVER LOOKED BACK!

 

I changed to a Bachelor of Design with a major in communication design, and thus my "official" journey began.

 

Since then I have been focusing on my design work, continued studying, gotten engaged and loved every moment of it.
