About Haydn Adams
Creative Strategist

Haydn has spent over 20 years designing and building web and interactive work. Starting in the middle ‘90s, he was involved with beta testing the early editions of Flash and coding online.

Not long afterwards, he began working in the print world, learning the methodologies of color theory and paper stock. Soon he was speaking two languages—print and the web. The web started to grow beyond just web pages.

In addition to running Nautilus Designs, Haydn is also faculty at the Academy of Art University where he teaches in the Web Design & New Media and Illustration department, both in graduate and undergraduate levels. He served as the National President of the Graphic Artists Guild; a 45+ year old union of artists for 5 serves, stepping down in 2016 and, thus, becoming the immediate past President on the National Board.

Haydn holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and is accredited with the California Community Colleges. He has lectured at nearly half a dozen colleges and universities on design & social media.

If Haydn is not writing code or speaking about social media, he’s writing about wine. He is a published author and wine critic and runs the popular wine company, Beyond Napa Valley.
