Interview with Adam Priester.
What inspires your work?
I’m not sure; it’s a constant struggle. But it happens quite frequently that I dream of something, and then I’ll try to visualize that. It’s a balance not to get too inspired by all the other awesome work that’s around.
Do you mainly work digitally? If so what computer application/s do you use?
Yes, I’ve abandoned pen and paper, except for quick sketches. It frustrates me too much… I use a lot of different programs, the Adobe Suite, Cinema 4D and Octane + a wide array of plugins, World Machine and recently I’ve been trying to get into Houdini. But I’ll probably have to study masters in math for that to work out.
Your colour palates are incredibly beautiful. What inspires such beautiful colour combinations?
That’s a tough one… I’m not so sure. Probably retro sci-fi and anime movies.
What is your favourite Adam Priester design?
I can’t pick favorites! But it’s usually always my latest piece.
What do you do with your time when you’re not designing?
What can we expect next from Adam Priester?
I always try to learn something new, be it a technique or a program, so I’d like to think I’m constantly evolving. I never know what’s next myself!
If you could have a superpower what would it be?
Some sort of time manipulation for sure.
What do you listen to while creating your art?
Most of the time nothing, but late at night if I want to get in a special mood I’ll listen to Burial and similar stuff. I find things with too much going on all too distracting.
