Who’s Adam?

I’m a recent grad of the Centennial College Centre for Creative Communications in Toronto. I came to this city after graduating from Brock University with a degree in Fine Arts, intent on becoming a graphic novelist. I started designing web sites to pay the bills and wound up making something of a career of it.

What cool stuff is Adam doing?

I just finished my first book - “I’m Crazy” and I’m taking on a variety of sites, principally for arts organizations. I think the web is such a great place for learning and free expression, so I think it’s important that arts have a presence there. Sometimes I feel like the whole web is moving towards this boring template style. I want to bring a sense of originality, personality and fun to my work. The internet is not a boring place.

Recently I’ve been working on flash games. I’m a big geek in my private life and making flash games is like a whole new level of geekiness. My favourite game so far is an adventure game I built out of old Super Nintendo graphics. I’m also very proud of a little game called “Science Fair” a deductive reasoning adventure for kids. I loved computer games as a kid and I think they’re a wonderful tool for teaching.

What are Adam’s plans after graduation?

As much freelance work as I can muster. I’m working on developing a series of flash games that follow a soap opera story line. I’m really interested in how user input can influence a narrative and I think it would be an interesting fusion of comics and code.

Want to learn more about Adam?

I’ve launched an online portfolio at http://www.bluespaceship.com/adam_bourret/, most of my web projects are featured there, and some of my art projects as well.

    Adam is a great example of someone who works hard and follows his dream. Although he had obtained a degree, Adam enrolled in Centennial College’s Interactive Digital Media program, which obviously introduced him to new ways of producing content for the Web, and a new career. With his training at Centennial College and his raw talent I hope Adam is able to prove that the Internet really isn’t a boring place.
