Now? We catch up with Sean to discuss a bit of the past – as well as his current work in creating the Graphic Design Graduate Program at ArtCenter, his Lynda.com video courses, and his personal site – Burning Settlers Cabin.
In 2008, Donovan Beery and I sat down with AIGA President Sean Adams in Omaha, Nebraska, where Sean was attending the AIGA Leadership Retreat. During our visit with Sean, he was incredibly gracious and cordial, and often disarming with his humor. We met Sean in a large but decidedly un-decadent hotel room and discussed the formation of Adams Morioka, what makes designers take the plunge into self-employment, and the perks of sharing an office building with Larry Flint. (The full interview can be heard on The Reflex Blue Show, available for download here.)
This week we welcome special guest Sean Adams of Adams Morioka! Current President of the AIGA and master of all things super-great, Sean was our guest while visiting the great city of Omaha for the AIGA Leadership Retreat last month. Aside from being a great designer and, according to him, a fantastic boss, Sean is really one of the most generous and kind people we’ve had the privilege to share the microphone with.
Sorry for the spotty sound on this show (and a few upcoming); the 36 Point Mobile Recording Studio turned out to be on its last legs during this conversation and died shortly thereafter. We don’t know if that’s what actually makes us sound terrible on this show or not, but Sean sounds great, and that’s who you’re really tuning in for, now isn’t it?
