…I am Ed.
My name is Ed Adams, and I’m a designer, an illustrator, an artist, and if you want to play the title game - I’m an Art Director. I work in the NJ / NYC metro area and create things that people look at everyday; on the street and on the internet, I’ve worked on projects with the big budgets of fortune 500s to less lucrative jobs for bands and record labels. I thrive on both print and interactive; I’m able to handle everything from concept to flash development and I can act as a liaison between creative and technology with my working knowledge of both backend and frontend code [hopefully saving everyone a few years on their life expectancy]. I’m painfully organized, obsessed with “a christmas story”, and I can’t stand it when my glass coffee table has smudges. Ultimately, it all comes down to one thing: I love to make pictures.

If you’d like to talk about what kind of picture you need made [static or interactive], or you just want to talk about my typography, drop me a line at ed[at]flickertoflame.com and we can sit down, drink some tea, and have a chat.

Plus, you can always track my every move @ twitter (if I’m not being lazy) or head on over to LinkedIn for more professional info. Plus, you can always view the main purpose of flickertoflame.com: my portfolio.

Here are a few images of the latest layout I did for a band out of Brooklyn, NY called GHOST ROBOT NINJA BEAR. Oscar Albis Rodriguez, formerly of Nakatomi Plaza and De La Hoya, has started this new project and the first output is astounding. I’m really happy to have been a part of it and I look forward to working with him/them more. In fact, pins and stickers are currently in the works and will hopefully be done in the near future – I’ll get some shots up of those when I get my hands on them.

The layout is a silk-screened piece on a 100% recycled chipboard Arigato Pack by Sire Press out of Philly. These guys did a fantastic job on the production and actually lead us into what I would call a “happy accident” when they were doing some ink tests; we ultimately ended up using a standard teal ink in the first pass, then added a plastisol yellow, which was repelled slightly by the teal, giving us the appearance of a third color (bright green). Totally sweet effect in person, and something that I may plan on using in the future. See the image below for all of the silk-screened, recycled chipboard goodness, and be sure to click for the full post, which has a few more images!
