Hello, I’m Adam J. Kurtz. A lot of people call me “ADAMJK” and that’s okay too. I’m a graphic designer and artist currently living in New York.

 
I’m very interested in the ephemera of daily life, small tokens and messages, creating honest, accessible work through my gift shop, and other small-scale collaborations. You could say my personal work is “really, really, personal.”

 
My book 1 Page at a Time: A Daily Creative Companion is now available through Penguin USA, with additional editions via Penguin UK, Companhia Das Letras, Plaza & Janes, and more.

 
I’ve previously worked in design roles at Barton F. Graf, Houpla and Ads Next. I earned a degree in Visual Arts/Design from UMBC in 2009.

Clients include:
Penguin Random House
Urban Outfitters
The New York Times
Warner Music Group
AARP
