Adam Turman is an illustrator from Minneapolis, MN, whose bold style offers colorful takes on beloved landmarks and the great outdoors. Adam’s murals can be found throughout the Midwest, and his prints in private collections worldwide. He works with major brands, independent businesses, and private collectors to make art part of our everyday.
Adam grew up in the Twin Cities and got his start as an artist by making gig posters for bands coming through popular Twin Cities venues. He drew influence from the bold, graphic style of 80s art and comics. Adam started his professional studio practice in 2003, and since then has become one of Minnesota’s most popular artists.
Approaching projects from a graphic design perspective, Adam connects with art lovers through his collection of colorful art screen prints and creates commissioned pieces in the form of logos, illustrations, murals, and paintings. Clients use his work to advertise events, connect with local audiences, and celebrate their organizations. He has worked with businesses like Sierra Nevada Brewing, Fidelity Investments, X Games, SPAM/Hormel, Red Bull, and the Children’s Hospitals of Minnesota, just to name a few.
Sarah Allen is Adam Turman, LLC’s sales manager, customer service lead, and project accounts manager. She is the first point of contact for clients & customers. Sarah wears many hats. She has worked with many of our clients and retailers in her career before working with Adam Turman. She brings years of industry knowledge, project management, and superior customer service to her roll. If you have a question about art or our creative process, she can answer it. If you have inquires about what we do and how we do it, she can answer those questions, too. She is the organization of our small business. New ideas, broad perspectives, a smile, and a happy enthusiasm come through with our philosophy of keeping customers and clients happy while she is on the task.
Commercial illustration is what we do best. Our favorite and most successful work comes from collaboration with our clients. A detailed creative brief and thorough communication with our client is key to creating the best illustrative solution to their communication needs.
Murals are the projects we have the most fun with. They are ultimately free art for the client's’ audience, but they deliver the greatest return. Murals are permanent and stand the test of time. We create bold, graphic, and beautiful works of art that build off of our client's brand.
Yes, yes, YES! Oh, how we love to make screen-printed art prints and gig posters! Our screen-printed work often stems from illustrated campaign work that clients can then utilize as an art print or a gig poster to promote or act as a retail product at an event. A poster/print that is screen-printed has a quality to it that feels more authentic, more real, and more true to your client or customer than a print that came out of a printer by clicking command>P. We offer screen-printing services of the illustration work that we do.
Logo design is one of the most important elements of building any business. What's the first image you think of when you think "logo”? Yes, it's that one... the one with the bullseye, or the swoosh, or the smile/arrow. Let us help make you iconic with our logo design services.
Paintings are small murals. Some of the paintings we create are personal commissions that hang in homes or galleries, while some are commissioned to be used on a much broader scale, like in advertising campaigns or similar. Paintings are unique and one-of-a-kind.
