Adam Connor an illustrator, designer, and author obsessed with the creative process. And with stories. No matter how utilitarian a tool may seem, at its core lies a story. Uncovering that story is the key to a successful design. As a designer with Mad*Pow, Adam uses his design and illustration talents, 12+ years of interaction design experience, and a background in Computer Science, film and animation to create effective and easy-to-use digital products and services.

Adam never tires of explaining how critical collaboration and critique are to the creative process. He has made helping design teams improve their processes and cultures a focus of his work in recent years at Mad*Pow. There, as VP of their Organizational Transformation and Training practice, he has helped establish services that aid teams in examining and overcoming obstacles to their creativity.
