For over a decade, T/A Martin has been helping clients clarify who they are, define what they do, as well as inform their intended audiences why they matter in the marketplace by engaging their consumers with thought-provoking visual narratives and digital experiences.
Early in its existence, the studio made a conscious decision to remain lean in order to provide clients with an intimate consulting experience. While independently operated by Principal & Creative Director Adam Martin, the studio possesses a unique ability to scale and custom-tailor teams by leveraging a trusted network of associates developed over Martin's 15 years in the creative business.
After obtaining a B.F.A. in Graphic Design ('05) from Eastern Kentucky University, Adam Martin began his career as a graphic + interactive designer at renown Lexington, Kentucky sports marketing agency, Host Communications (now known as Learfield IMG College). Blessed with an entrepreneurial spirit, Adam exited Host Communications in 2006 to open his own design studio with plans to bring digitally-driven design, creative direction and brand consulting to clients in sports & entertainment.
For more than a decade, Adam has been creating award-winning work and has become a respected voice in sports branding via his podcast, Makers of Sport®. Although his work is widely known in the sports business, Adam and his strategic partners have extensive experience in other verticals including entertainment, lifestyle & consumer brands, food & beverage, higher education, technology, medical & healthcare, automotive, associations & non-profits, manufacturing and industrial industries.
Adam resides near Lexington, Kentucky with his wife and 3 kids and in his spare time enjoys hiking in Red River Gorge, coaching youth sports and being involved in the global sports tech scene.
