Adam Barnes



Hey, I'm Adam.

I’ve been a Creative and Art Director for almost a decade. But I can do other things. Like copywriting, retouching, designing, editing, fathering a zoo (a French Bulldog, two cats and a wife), golf hacking, herb growing, rum drinking, list making, balloon animal creating and Ikea furniture put-togethering. 

Brands I've worked on include McDonald’s, Mercedes-Benz, NAB Bank, SKY TV, Mars Brands and CUB Breweries, at some of New Zealand and Australia's best agencies, like DDB New Zealand and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne. I also tutored AWARD school in 2017, mentoring upcoming creatives in Melbourne.

I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty in retail and love the challenge of working on larger integrated brand platforms.

Some of my work has even picked up a bit of metal along the way and in 2016 my partner and I were crowned the top creatives in the world under 30 by YoungGuns International Awards.

I'm currently living in Auckland. Take a look at some of my favourite pieces of work and if you want to get in touch, I'd love to chat.
