Adam Whitten

UX Design Leader, Entrepreneur


I am Adam, a 32-year-old designer from the United States of America. Presently, I reside in the picturesque city of Charlotte, North Carolina. In my spare time you can catch me working on my Tacoma or playing with my two Golden Retrievers, Marley and Biscuit.

My career passion lies in digital projects, where I am committed to continuous learning and professional growth. I aspire to enhance global accessibility and usability of technology. Collaborating with inspiring industry professionals motivates me to deliver exceptional work and contribute to the community.

You'll often find me sharing glimpses of my life, including photos of my golden boys, Marley & Biscuit, on Instagram and writing an article or two on Medium about topics I'm passionate about.

Outside of work, I unwind by watching sports, playing pickleball, and exploring new resturants in Charlotte. As a self-proclaimed food enthusiast, I particularly enjoy Mexican cuisine. I also own my own business. If I'm not eating I'm running my passion project. 😎


Creating design that is both functional and beautiful.

My expertise spreads from websites, mobile apps, and omni-channel experiences. By creating a functional design, I’m also creating an accessible one…this will boost the beauty of the experiences I am creating for my clients. My roots grow from visual design, so of course I design visually beautiful things as well.

Conceptual design and prototyping is my favorite stages of the experience designing process. I love to sketch out, wireframe, and prototype a product to see exactly where the issue of the product or experience lies. This allows me to figure out the issues early on in the process. Then, I can truly focus on making the product or experience visually appealing to a user.


BFA in Web Design & Interactive Media

I graduated from the Art Institute of Charlotte in December of 2015. My program of study was Web Design & Interactive Media. This program included classes in web design, graphic design, visual design, motion graphics, marketing, and business KPIs. I would love to continue my education and I find myself on YouTube and LinkedIn learning new things every day. If time would allow in the future, I would love to learn more about developing mobile apps using Angular, React, or Google’s Flutter language.

Certficate of User Experience

I recieved a certficate of achievement from Accenture. The class was 3 weeks long with a minimum of 2 hours a week dedicated to the class.

I hate giving myself a title.

I’ve never been a huge fan of calling myself a “This” Designer. I have vast knowledge in design and it’s different sectors. Some would call me and ui/ux designer, visual designer, web designer, front-end designer. I found when working with different people and different companies, all have their own opinions of what each of those are classified as. I consider myself a UI/UX VD (user interface/user experience visual designer), with a concentration in the digital space. Below are things I feel are some of my strongest assets.

  • Content Marketing
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Social Media Maketing
  • Creative / Content Strategy
  • Conceptual UI/UX
  • User Flows & Planning
  • New Products & Services
  • Product Design Vision
  • UI/UX for Web, Mobile, & App
  • Responsive Web Design
  • Graphic Design Solutions
  • Digital Product Design
  • Brand Identity
  • Visual Communications
  • Systems & Grids
  • Voice & Tone

My Vision

Lead by example, stay humble, help others, and inspire others around me.

I love to share my knowledge to other designers, developers, and stake holders on new technology or just some advice. I believe in collaboration over competition. Where I’m from, team work makes the dream work. I love team building activities and I’m all for anything that gets the office moral up. Happy team members will deliver you the best results you could ever ask for. Trust me, I’ve seen it!
