Adam Martin Profile Headshot







So stoked to launch episode 44 of the Podcast as it features Adam Martin, a talented graphic designer and host of the Makers of Sport Podcast. I met Adam for the first time in 2015 at the Major Level Creative (MLC) Connect Design Conference and we got into a deep conversation about Podcasting and it lit a fire under me that pushed me to creating this Podcast. Adam is a talented graphic designer and has run a successful design firm for many years where we works closely with many folks in and out of the sports world.

I think you all will enjoy Adam and I’s dialogue throughout as we touch on a variety of topics around design, podcasting, exploring your passion and finding fulfillment, and so much more…

If you get a chance to listen I hope you enjoy!

About Adam Martin:

Hi, y’all. I’m Adam. I’m a designer, creative director and podcaster in Kentucky.

I founded the creative studio, Mtn. & Co., an independent brand and interactive design studio for the sports & entertainment business.

As principal & creative director, I design, develop business relationships and manage a team of trusted collaborators on art direction, visual design, typography, UX/UI, web development, photography, content creation, copywriting and more.

Sport—specifically its ability to influence culture and bridge generations—excites me. In fact, I created a podcast to capitalize on this excitement called Makers of Sport®, a show about design, creativity and makers in the sports business.

Throughout my 10+ year career, I’ve had the pleasure of working with many brands in sport or otherwise including IMG Worldwide, PGA Tour, Kansas City Chiefs, SLAM Magazine, 3d Lacrosse, Matt Carpenter (St. Louis Cardinals), JMI Sports, the Texas Longhorns, the Michigan Wolverines, the Kentucky Wildcats, the Tennessee Volunteers, the NCAA, the Southeastern Conference (SEC), the John Wooden Award, Jim Beam Brands, Girl Scouts of America, Toyota, Scion, Raising Canes, Smashburger and many more.

I’ve been blessed to win awards from or be published in the American Advertising Federation (ADDYS), Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) magazine, PRINT magazine, College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA), UniWatch, SportTechie, Apple Podcasts, Adidas Group Blog and Product Hunt.

I enjoy speaking and have moderated panels, been interviewed on podcasts or given a few talks. Recent speaking engagements include: Major Level Creative Connect, AIGA Richmond, the University of Kentucky’s Gatton College of Businessand College of Art & Visual Studies, the Lexington Chapter of the American Advertising Federation, and the Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Kentucky.

Occasionally, I write stuff.

To connect with me you can follow me, view my work, read my articles, or see my resume. Also, feel free to email me to say hello or inquire about working together
