Adam Whitten

UI / UX Designer

01 of 06


I’m Adam, a twenty seven year old designer from the United States of America. I currently reside in beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina with my girlfriend, Morgan, and our Golden Retriever, Marley.

Working on digital projects is my passion when it comes to my career. I am always looking to learn and grow with new work or projects I take on. My long term goal is to make technology more accessible and easy to use for folks around the world. I work with some of the most inspring people in my industry and they are my motivation to do better work and to give back to the community around me.

I love to journal about my work and home life. You can catch me posting photos of Marley on Instagram, writing articles on topics I care about on Medium, and every now and then ramble off a thought or two on Twitter. When I’m not working, I like to relax, play and watch basketball, and be a foodie with Morgan. Side note, my favorite food is Mexican…if you’re in the Charlotte area, I can give you some killer food and brew recommendations!

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. I would love to continue my education and I find myself on YouTube and Linda learning new things every day. If time would allow in the future, I would love to learn more about coding 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!
