I have been creating digital experiences for over 12 years in online advertising and video games industries. I now specialise in the complete design and build of cross-device rich media digital display ads. This can include initial conceptual and storyboard designs along with art and asset creation, leading to desktop page skins, responsive mobile interstitials and standard banners. Featuring anything from rich animations, HTML5 games and video to interactive experiences and dynamically optimised creatives.
I have been entrusted by many clients over the last few years to produce pitch-ready storyboards and mockups, assets / artwork from scratch, user experience designs and production-ready final layouts. I think with the developer in-mind and work to the platform limitations, cross-screen devices or formats I am designing for. I work efficiently and accurately, ensuring the design delivers on-brief and beyond.
Before branching out into the design world, I worked for 10+ years as a creative front end developer, working alongside experienced creative directors to realize their ideas into fully functioning production-ready builds. Now I do more design, I design with a view that I will also do the build - streamlining the creative process.
Having spent some years as iOS / Android games developer in an agile developent team, I can bring these skills into the adverstising world, where I specialise in the design and build of cross-device html5 games, generally utilising PIXI.JS or Unity3D. Many of these games now exist in propriety rich-media ad formats, being served to hundreds of thousands of people every day.
Throughout my time working with Adam Cousins he has proven to be the most creative and capable web developer I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He had a fantastic eye for unique designs and was able to implement some of the best strategies our company had.
Adam offered consistently solid technical implementations and has a keen eye for user centred design and gameplay design.
Adam understands the importance of attention to detail and loves an opportunity to push the boundaries of any platform in order to create something truly interesting and unique.
Adam is a fast, efficient developer with an uncanny ability to pick-up new technology. Always professional to work with, Adam has not put a foot wrong the entire time I have worked with him.
