The work of AdamsMorioka ranges from corporate identities, identity systems, print campaigns and environmental graphics for both interior and exterior, to motion and digital projects such as film and video, animation and websites. We begin each project by strategically creating a set of criteria, compiled by collaborating with our clients. We are very strict about quality, presentation and content, but, of course, there is always the AdamsMorioka touch of fun.

AdamsMorioka is the author of Logo Design Workbook and Color Workbook, released in 2005. AdamsMorioka’s clients include ABC, Adobe, Gap, Old Navy, Frank Gehry Associates, Nickelodeon, USC, Sundance and The Walt Disney Company.

The live show is on Wednesday nights at 8pm CST on DesignChat's site. There's always live video and a chat room, which means you can ask questions directly of Sean! You can follow us on Twitter for more announcements. Also, join our Facebook group and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
