Adam has been working professionally and teaching in the design industry since 2003 and he formed atelier aL in 2017.

In each new project the desire to be thoughtful, playful, thorough, and serious about [design as research] can be easily seen.

Through his work and teaching he has developed a broad range of expertise. Adam is consistently driven to create new design paradigms in his own work and the work it influences.
Adam has two sons, Dov and Jasper. Dov makes films across the United States and Jasper is a poet and an artist of considerable skill. Lanman enjoys his creative friends, the occasional unplanned road trip, obscure cinema, sketching and painting, and backwoods camping. He happily cares for at least one stray cat and regularly supports local outreach centers and art organizations through volunteer and pro bono work. He believes in the mentorship process for young professionals and is always excited to help others on their path to success.
