We’re Breaking Up the Band

2015 has arrived; a time of resolutions, hoverboards, and new beginnings. So, it seems more than appropriate that we take this time to announce the changes here at Hexanine.

It’s been nearly six amazing years, and we’ve had the pleasure and good fortune to work with dozens of great clients on amazing projects that inspired others, won awards, and moved the needle for organizations large and small. And now it’s time for a change.

After thousands of miles, millions of Skype sessions, and tons of wonderful memories, we are are bidding Hexanine a fond farewell, and moving on to new opportunities.

Both of us are heading off in different directions, with new challenges and other teams, as well as exciting solo endeavors. You can keep in touch with both of us in a variety of ways, so please drop a line or give a call.

Best wishes, adios, good night, and good luck!

“There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.”

Jason Adam Talks Creativity With Ventito

Jason Adam Interviewed by Ventito - Hexanine

Inspiration is at the heart of what we do on a daily basis at Hexanine, and it’s something we love to talk about. That’s exactly what our co-founder, Jason Adam, did with the great folks at Western Digital’s Ventito in a wide-ranging interview. Here’s a snippet:

“My attitude now is the same as it was before: Opportunities need to be uncovered. And the best way to do that is by consistently making unreasonable requests. There’s almost always nothing to lose, and wild and incredible experiences to gain.”

You can check out the rest of the interview at the link above, and hear from other experts in creativity at Ventito.

Jason Moderates AIGA LA Blueprint Event

Hexanine Co-Founder Jason Adam Moderates AIGA Los Angeles Blueprint Event

Last week I had the privilege of moderating the panel discussion at the premiere event in our AIGA Los Angeles Blueprint series. We brought four of LA’s finest independent designers to NextSpace in Culver City, CA for a two-hour discussion on the business of freelancing.

While freelance designers love to talk about their creative work, they’re often less fond of talking about their businesses. Such “boring” topics as accounting, taxes, legal issues, business strategy and client relations are often considered necessary evils, reflected by their time spent in the conversational spotlight.

And that’s no good.

Talking Design Strategy With HOW


Hexanine partner Jason Adam is featured in the latest print issue of HOW magazine, one of our favorite design publications.

The Group Typeface Experiment

Last week AIGA Los Angeles hosted The Group Typeface Experiment at TypeCon2010: Babel here in LA. During an unscripted hour of collaborative design, attendees were given the opportunity to create a typeface on the spot using nothing but square and triangle stickers.

I had the pleasure of concepting the event, and the honor of helping produce it, along with numerous other intrepid AIGA LA members including the incredi-awesome Heather Parlato, whose design blog is regular reading here at Hexanine.

We were pretty pleased with the results, revealed here in the video above, filmed and produced on-the-spot by our friends at i am 8-bit (we’re looking at you Taylor Ragsdale). Watch away!
