about Adam Lewin
For over 20 years, I have been working both freelance and on staff as an awarded art director, designer, teacher and illustrator for advertising agencies, design firms, plus a wide range of media companies including books, publications, television, and music. 

During the last eight years I was living and working primarily in Berlin, Germany where I had a design studio, taught and worked as an exhibiting fine artist. I also frequently traveled to New York where I freelanced for a variety of Ad agencies.

Having studied art and design from a very young age through to post graduate plus being a native Manhattanite (with all that that entails) I can confidently say that problem solving in an innovative and imaginative way is deeply embedded in my way of thinking. This authenticity is what I bring to the table in every project. 

I am currently available for freelance either on or offsite for either long or short-term projects. I'm also open to considering the possibility of a full time position.
